Interesting stuff but any estimated time frame on features like bulk edit rom paths, user profiles and custom platforms.

I really think that those 3 things would add a lot of to Launchbox. Personally I don't need to bulk edit rom paths and user profiles but I really think those 2 are really wanted by many people. I do really want custom platforms and I know for a fact many people really want them.

I was just kidding, @lordmonkus; I really don't know. Combined that's a lot to implement and I don't want to make any promises that long-term. Also, let's keep this thread lighthearted and focused on the MS-DOS app. :)

How cool. It reminds me back when I used to have the Access menu program to launch my games with: http://members.quicknet.nl/blankendaalr/

If there's a way you can get a VGA-based GUI on it, it would be awesome.

Exactly. I remember using a really old version of Access way back as well, but it had stupid limitations. I'm guessing I never used the later versions though.

It would be neat to figure out the VGA graphics stuff. That said, I'll probably never get that good at DOS development lol.

@walter10h Called the first one. :)

As far as the source code, I'll think about it. I hadn't planned to release it and I'd have to change the licensing on it and stuff. I've been using it for my personal collection though and I already want some more features, so I'll probably be updating it soon enough.

Great to hear @AnUnusedMoniker. I was in the same boat basically. I've actually spent the weekend screwing around with it some more and added a bunch of new features (app configuration commands, browse and run, separators, etc.). I should have a new version up soon once I test this a bit more.

Hey all, I just put out version 1.1 already lol. I added a bunch of features (and one fix) this past weekend and things seem to be working well enough. Here's the change log:

- New "Move to Top" and "Move to Bottom" options are available under the Edit menu

- New "Insert Separator" option available under the Edit menu

- Each application can now have a separate set of commands for configuring the application

- New explicit "Run Selected" and "Configure Selected" options are available under the File menu

- New "Browse and Run" option is available under the File menu

- New "Lock" option is available under the File menu to help prevent accidental changes

- Changed the batch file process to better support DOSBox and older versions of MS-DOS

I updated the download link in the main post, and here it is again: http://bit.ly/LBXDOS11

Happy MS-DOS. :)

You are insane.

I agree. But wonderful! Now, seriously, I want a Commodore 64 version. I'll pay anything you want if you'll create Launchbox for C64! I want it! NOW! :)
