Additional App, what is and how I can use it


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I see that I can add an additional app. Usually I have seen that it is used by alternate versions of a game. But I was reading the Beta 11.8 testing topic and I have read that you can add...pdf? Manual?

I am asking this because I'd like having what follow:

for some games I'd like to view a pdf with the review (like Zzap64! for C64 games). Can I do it? Can I show the magazine only with RMB or can it appear a link in the front screen in LB/BB?

What can I add also with additional app?

Thank you for any reply!!

If you add an additional app in the form of a .pdf it will show up in LaunchBox/BigBox in the pause menu as a selectable item, in LB when you right click a game, and in BigBox if you have game details active and then select additional apps is shows in that list. .

thank you!

But in 

"Application Path:"

I have to insert the name of the software that I want to use or the name of pdf? And where I insert the other one?

I see that I can start a software before main application... I just can start a joy2key for example? So I have to insert the joy2key path, right?

Usually which software are used to start before or after?

Yes, I am very curious because I like to improve my LB/BB, anyway for the last question I'll search on google, I dont want to bother you too much.
