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.

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.

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.

6. Cover image popup window scales to images and maintains aspect ratio.
7. Combined the text & pdf viewers by using a browser based gadget.

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?

Hello mrv2k,

when I select a game i.e. "Play the game" the DDLauch only opens the winuae application showing the "Configurations" panel. It does not start the game.

Something I miss?

Thank you!

Edit: Nevermind I removed winuae.ini, DD_CONFIGS.dat, DD_DB.dat and DD_LAUNCH.prefs files, started all over and now everything works!

I've just uploaded a new version of DDLaunch. This version has a big update to how the GUI is drawn. The compact mode is gone and the new stretch procedure keep the image panel the full height of the window. You can also manually set the window width and height in the prefs file.

Finally, you can now disable the scanlines and LED's in game.

Cross fingers I've not broken anything. DD is really pleased with the update.

Fixes / Updates

v1.4
-----
  1. Added menu switch to turn scanlines on or off. Saved in prefs.
  2. Added menu switch to turn the in-game LEDs on or off. Saved in prefs.
  3. Fixed box art border colour loading from the prefs file.
  4. Removed compact mode
  5. Stretch window now automatically resizes to your desktop size. If your monitor aspect is over 16:9, the window ratio is limited to 16:9.
  6. All gadgets automatically resize to the window.
  7. Fixed floppy speed frame showing the wrong percentage when starting the program.
  8. Added Wii and Megadrive conversion to the filter.
  9. Renamed and removed a couple of filters on DD's request.
  10. Slightly sped up config scrape procedure.
  11. Config list automatically resizes if there is a vertical scrollbar.
  12. Fixed bug in config list drawing that stopped alternate line background if the filter was used.
  13. Added default window width and height to prefs. Change these settings to change the default window size. Minimum is 1280 wide x 720 high.
  14. Updated the help file to reflect menu and GUI changes.
