iGame for Windows - beta version available
« on: November 18, 2012, 01:18:46 PM »
It started as a personal project but since I believe other people may find it useful, I've decided to make it public.

iGame for Windows is an application inspired by the original iGame for Amiga by MrZammler. It allows you to manage your Amiga games collection and launch them in WinUAE.



Download it from here

Features currently include:
  • Recursive folder scanning for your games.
  • Storage of all game titles found in a local database.
  • Use screenshots, music and extras from GameBase Amiga, if found. They are displayed on the right hand side for each game.
  • Launch the selected game in WinUAE (with the selected UAE configuration) with a simple double-click.
  • Music playback using the bundled XMPlay player, or alternatively DeliPlayer2 if it’s found installed.
  • Search for selected game in well-known related websites (LemonAmiga, HOL).
  • Live filtering of games from the list, depending on your search text.
  • Multi-disk game handling (utilizing the DiskSwapper feature of WinUAE).
  • Option to show only unique game Titles (default) or all files found.


Meanwhile, the following features are planned to be included later on:
  • Support WHDLoad games (scanning, launching, metadata), besides just ADF/ADZ/ZIP/IPF.
  • Fetch game metadata from various websites and store them locally for each game.
  • Edit game metadata like screenshots, music, selected UAE config, information etc.


Feedback is welcome!

Thanks for the replies!

Meanwhile, I'm looking for a better title to avoid confusion with the original iGame for Amiga. If anyone has nice ideas about it, please let me know!

This is a great free alternative to Amiga Forever. Maybe as a name you simply swap I for A (for Amiga).
