I've tweaked the sorting to match WinUAE

Another request from me

This is how things currently look:



Is it possible to have the Frontend expand to the size of your desktop; minus the Taskbar?

Can we not do something about the boxart being centred vertically? That looks really shoddy especially with the game info panel being aligned to the bottom.

Yeah I guess.

...probably can remove the "Game Info" section; as that's just more work for me ATM that I don't have time to spend on.

I am sure that could be scraped from lemonamiga or HOL

I'm sure it can; just extra work.

I also PM'd RCK to see if I could please use some of the missing boxart from HOL; no response... has to be a month ago now.

Problem is that all the boxart images are different aspects. I made it this way because some of the D&D artwork is really long. That artwork fills the gap perfectly. Everything else is auto scaled to the correct aspect which is what DamienD wanted.

The Game Info box can easily have a paste option added to it so text can be added (maybe on a private build for DamienD). I've done it on my WHDLoad launcher whilst I finish it's database.

Just align the boxart to the top, game info to fill the remaining space and then allow the user to use a splitter to resize the titles space, and resize the window. That would probably work.

I like what you've done, but the layout makes me want to make my own.

For me, I would move the filter and the floppy speed under the main list. Resize the title and screenshots. Center the cover art. Add the option to ignore the aspect ratio and use the full height of the window. Finally add the game info to a pop-up accessed from the right click menu. I could add window resize but it's a pain and quite time consuming. With all the other stuff I'm working on and life in general, it might take a while to do.

Where to download the latest version of DDLaunch and UltraMiggy? Are both tools the same thing? Where do they differ?

Do they start the game (through WinUAE) or these tools are just a database/directory listing stuff?

Thanks for your great effort!

Ultramiggy is a long way off from release. Both are based off the same code but work in different ways. DDLaunch launches Damien's original configuration files and doesn't change anything. Ultramiggy launches a custom config and loads straight into the whdload game. I'm also using Ultramiggy to create a full WHDLoad database and my screenshot archive. I might strip out that code and put out an alpha version. Just need the time at the moment.

Here's the DDLaunch Link

DDLaunch looks for a file called "___Info.txt" in the game folder. It can be as long as you want, just in plain text.
