It started as a personal project but since I believe more people might have some use for it, I decided to make it public...

iGame for Windows is an application inspired by the original iGame for Amiga by MrZammler. It allows you to manage your Amiga games collection and launch them in WinUAE with a double-click.

Features include:
-Recursive folder scanning for your games.
-Storage of all game titles found in a local database.
-Use screenshots, music and extras from GameBase Amiga, if found. They are displayed on the right hand side for each game.
-Launch the selected game in WinUAE (with the selected UAE configuration) with a simple double-click.
-Music playback using the bundled XMPlay player, or alternatively DeliPlayer2 if itís found installed.
-Search for selected game in well-known related websites (LemonAmiga, HOL).
-Live filtering of games from the list, depending on your search text.
-Multi-disk game handling (utilizing the DiskSwapper feature of WinUAE).
-Option to show only unique game Titles (default) or all files found.

Meanwhile, the following features are planned to be included later on:

-Support WHDLoad games (scanning, launching, metadata), besides just ADF/ADZ/ZIP/IPF.
-Fetch game metadata from various websites and store them locally for each game.
-Edit game metadata like screenshots, music, selected UAE config, information etc.

Feedback is welcome!
