IDEA: PC game launcher/organizer/frontend

<< < (6/7) > >>

I have been working on a similar project for a few months now called the Aurora Game Manager. unfortunately the core components are still in heavy development and are not activated, but Maybe someone might find the current Idea enough to give you an idea of how it will look in the end.

I am almost done the core features
-Add Game to Library (with beautiful box art)
-Remove Games from library
-Launch Games in library
-Search for games in library
-Select Favourite Game

This will be completed and seen in an alpha release

after that the following will be released in a beta release:
-Tracking (Hours Played per game, Overall Favourite Games, Last Played)
-Badges (Based on Time played, time of day, day of month ect)
-Skins (Supporting Custom Skins)

Pre-Alpha : HERE

Dev Diary Blog : HERE

Sounds very cool  :up:
Some screenshots would be nice.

Get Excited...

Alpha release soon, with only the Core Library functionality implemented.

I have searched high and low for a simple PC game launcher, but to no avail.

I have no idea how difficult it would be to make an app like this. If it's an unreasonable request, then let me know. If not, I would love to dig in and beta test whatever comes out!

This hits my musings on Coding "Snacks" vs "Coding Lunches and Dinners". My hunch is it's well out of Snack Territory, much like my ideas in other threads were. So I'm also interested in anyone's very rough time estimates (I know, multiply by 10 for debugging and polish!) It's that middle ground where I feel it would deserve a cash commission to anyone working on it based solely on the request. See my murmurings elsewhere for my opinions all over that.

Per OP's question, how many hours has it taken you so far to get to your Pre-Alpha? And would you call this a "Coding Lunch or Coding Dinner"? (Imagine this on a scale of say 1-5, those are levels 2-3, level 4 would be a full strength big app, and 5 would be an enterprise package module.
