Thanks guys...The idea is a launcher like the c64 and amiga but all old Dos classics..

@msantos...Every game im gonna use i make like this first for testing....I have quite a few on the go now the biggest is Terra Nova at 500 meg...

If you want to put them on your site then your welcome and i will post them as i do them in this thread...They will be all my testers but l made them all the same way as the one above so they are perfectly usable and playable.

Let me know and il post some more.....

ALT+ENTER gives full screen...
CTRL+F12 speeds up the game...
CTRL+F9 Exits the game
CTRL+F10 frees the mouse from the window

thanks friend. I can think of something for people to enjoy the classics. As I publish in my thread, you could be publishing your creations in this thread. between the two threads so we would have a good collection of classics for all friends to enjoy.
I give importance to being able to play with joypad in the portables I post on my blog.
in my blog post I hate launchers with several games. I'd rather go play a game. I'm glad you want to collaborate and publish your creations on my blog. if you create separate games of any system would be great. keep in touch friend.

If every release is a single game, could you add a game icon to the .exe?

Great work, I like it.

I get this message in one of the boxes that opens, is it normal?
