Nice one synchro.
Are you planning to combine all your launchers in a single program one day? It would be nice to have something like CoinOps for the PC.

Amstrad CPC 464 launcher, so we can play Dizzy in all it's glory

or

Atari 2600 launcher

I believe you were doing a SNES launcher or have done one, but the link has been down for some time.

TurboGrafx-16 Launcher?

List is endless

Yeah coinops rocks on the xbox. Its a pain in the ass to set up but hyperspin on the pc is worth checking out too if you like coinOps.

Brilliant, love it.

Just one question, is it possible to add games and if so how do you do it?

Sorry I create my launchers as I go....The whole idea is ..Install ..Click and play...No setup required...

But I do update them ...For instance the C64 Arcade launcher is on version 3.1.....

You can still grab it from my W.I.P site here...
http://www.plymouthlaptopscreens.co....uncherc64.html

Worth a download if you haven't seen it..

This is great! It would be nice if it had an internal 'update' feature to save a entire re-download.

OK fair enough, sorry wasn't complaining, just asking that's all, your launchers are awesome. It really would be nice to be able to add games though, as there are loads of games that I'd like in the Amiga launcher, but I understand that would be a lot of work to do.

The latest Arcade launcher though seems to have all the main classic games already in there so no worries there

Hello mate, thanks for this great collection. Just one question, because I can't seem to be able to find where the bug comes from. Basically all games that I tried work fine when I set the gamepad settings, except for the metal slug games. None of them recognize gamepad input. I can't even change the mappings if I go to the menu (TAB). But in any other game I can set the general or game specific input for the gamepad.

And even after setting the general input in another game, in metal slug my chars do not move at all
