Games explorer notices eight of them

Problem here is that games have to register with Games Explorer, during install usually, to be noticed by GE, so it's not directly GE's 'fault', IMHO :o

Exactly.  And there are ways around that.

Yes, and I have used that to input an additional 5 games - It's just too slow and ugly to use, when doing in a large scale.

hi guys,

coincidentally i was planning to make something like this.
A Game Launcher with the following features:
- portable!
- games are ordered in tabs that can be created freely (e.g. genre)
- each game has: name, executable, optional configure executable, image, maybe more
- ideally controllable by a joypad (for couch potatoes using their pc in the living room - like me)
- a lot more stuff depending on my free time

i have already started and a rudimentary prototype working. It's a .Net project written in C#. I was eventually planning to publish it on some day.

sounds cool zissakos, keep us informed about your progress and show us some early versions!

progress so far...

Any suggestions/ideas?

Make the "Other Executables" tab more expansive. (Five or six executables, and let us change the labels).
For example, one game could have:

* Map Editor
* DX9 version
* Safe Mode
* Save Game Editor :o
* Config
And you should probably add an option to Close/Kill programs before you launch the game.

also, pics of the details view? :)
