What happened to all the innocent people Damien D banned over the years when he was made moderator for some reason? He was pretty tyrannical from what I observed. He banned the guy who provided a number of BBS backups. Would like to see some of these people allowed back if Damien is allowed back.

Hey mrv2k, DamienD asked me to post the following:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi mrv2k,

Thank you for your continued work / improvements with DDLaunch ;-)

Two things if I may:

1) In version v0.7a, when you scrolled through the list and games had docs, you used to see the words "Docs Available!", and they would turn from grey to black. This is completely missing from v0.8a. Do you think it would also be possible to click this text and then open the <gamedir> like WinUAE does?

2) I see you've changed the boxart panel background to black, which is cool. The only issue is that you cannot see where the title / screenshot / boxart finishes if it has black around it. Is it possible to do as WinUAE does and put a 1 pixel red border around all images?

Kind regards,
Damien.

DDLaunch v1.0 Full Release



This is the full v1.0 release of DDLaunch. I don't think that there are any more serious bugs and both myself and DD are happy with the feature set so I'm taking the program out of alpha. This is what's new...

v1.0 - Full Release
-------------------
1. Removed program wait on procedure Run_Game and added threaded cleanup process.
2. Added check to prevent starting two WinUAE processes.

As you can see from the screenshot above, this update allows you to run a game and still access the DDLaunch GUI.

Thank you and congratulations for the v.1.0 milestone release! I got 1.1, not that I'm complaining.

Yeah, I've been having an email conversation with Damien and making a few changes. The version I uploaded a few seconds ago is going to be the final version for now as there isn't much more to add. These are the latest changes...

v1.1
-----
1. Tweaked list sorting. 99.99% the same as WinUAE.
2. Added menu item to select between Damien's original names or new names. Saves in prefs.
3. Added a few more filters.

DDLaunch v1.2



Made some more changes and added a few features. Here's whats new...

v1.2
-----
1. Close confirm defaults to false
2. Tweaked the sort... again...
3. Media panels centre vertically on stretch
4. Stretch GUI now gives a buffer of 5 pixels top and bottom.
5. Cover images maintain aspect ratios and now reduce width if necessary.
6. Cover image popup window scales to images and maintains aspect ratio.
7. Combined the text & pdf viewers by using a browser based gadget.
8. DDLaunch allows 10 file view windows at any one time. A check prevents
more to be opened.
9. Converted DDLaunch.txt to be 80 columns.
10. Added support for png, gif and jpg images to the file viewer and popup
menu.
11. Popup menu now supports up to 30 files.
12. Moved configuration folder check to prevent any files being created if
there was an error.

Zipped files are in the post above.

The big question is will DamienD return in Dec following his ban?
whilst being on the suspension has he continued his work on his collection and will he share it with the community?
