An Idea for the future maybe

Post IP: rejestrowane!

I just love what you have done here.....If you ever consider a installable launcher package or a menued dvd give me a shout....I reckon it would be fantastic

And i would be honoured to do one.

Would be cool I guess, yeah. Unfortunately, we've got "only" ~1.4GB of EXEcs. ;)

Hello synchro.
Sure, if you want to - show us your concept. :)
Up to this day there are 150 of EXEcs, which take ~1.4GB. That's not enough to fill the whole DVD but a good number I guess...

Actually thats more unlikely than what you think if it looks professional....Your more likly to find people selling an Amiga DVD full of games to be honest.

Ok heres something for you to try....This is just a small installer with only a couple of pages. The final product could be an installer or a runnable DVD....Or both

I used one of my own templates for the menu but redesigned it for The Company.
Menu design is really the hard part ..( and even then you may not like it ) From this point adding games ..a search engine to this menu is easy so havea go and see what you think.....I would love to continue with it :)

Feedback Appreciated

just downloaded and tested it out. nice layout, i see the menu screens are bitmaps, is there anyway to scan the games folder and let the menu generate the games list. This way the installer wouldn't need to be updated everytime news exe's come out?

also this would mean the installer could be downloaded without the games pre-packed.

PS nice website by the way.

PPS we'll have to think of a "company" icon for the installer, i have the joystick one on my iphone ;)

After selecting a game, there's a long pause when nothing happens and still we can click the button. A loading message of some sort, or some other indication would be nice here.
- exit doesn't work
- animations instead of static screens from games would be cool

Aside that, since none of us have any experience with creating DVD menus/compilations, I guess it's all in your hands

Great Idea I will try it :)

Thanks for letting me continue.....Iv scrapped my Amiga one to do this cuz yours is better :)
