This is a quick update to eGame, to fix problems that some users were having. It also looks a lot nicer . eGame allows you to keep an easily searchable list of games for playing - rather than having to hunt through lots of folders using Workbench/Wanderer/Ambient.
* Moved the Icon & "Filter tags" windows into the main window, due to user demand. (It's taken some time to convince me, but it does look better!)
* Added a "Play count" column.
* Tries to fix tags which were wrongly entered by the user.
* and more!
eGame allows you to keep an easily searchable list of games for playing - rather than having to hunt through lots of folders using Workbench/Wanderer/Ambient. Please note that eGame is only able to start games that you can already run by double-clicking them.
"eGame" is short for "(Portabl)E Game Launcher". I originally wrote eGame as a test & an example of what can be achieved with PortablE's easy GUI system, but (after some prodding from Joel) I think it has become a nice useful program in it's own right.
As I've put a lot of effort into making tagging & filtering easy but still pretty powerful, I decided to make it 'DonationShareware'. Without a key file it will only display 10 games (although you can still search all stored games & the first 10 matches will be shown). If you want to get a key file to unlock it, then you need to send me at least 2 Pounds or Euros by PayPal (although I encourage you to donate more if you feel it is worth more!).
eGame has been tested on AmigaOS4 & AROS. Although I have not been able to test it on MorphOS, I have been told that it does work :) . But if you have any problems then please let me know!
You can download eGame directly from my web site (until Aminet accepts the new version).
With the recent changes, here is what it looks like now:
