* 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.
* Fixed some games failing to start on AmigaOS4 (or even crashing).
* 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 & OS4Depot accept the new version).
With the recent changes, here is what it looks like now:
