Hello guys,

I just want to announce that I'm working on an Windows 7 Gameexplorer clone for XP. The GUI and the Design are finished. The management of the games, i call it "the core", is not stable at all.
In the current build it is possible to add customgames and execute them. When the core is ready you can add other attributes to the games and organize them.
But there is also one big problem:
I am German and my English is very bad (you see), so the language of the program is also in German and I'm sure that none of you would like the program in German ;). I hope that you like this project and that someone whants to help me.


Greeting,

Monty Pillepalle.

I think you meant "Windows 7 Gameexplorer clone for Windows XP"

And you would have to release it for us to test it out and give feedback.

You can make it open source so that other community members may edit it and release in English.

News:
What I call the "core" is ready to use. Now I'm working at some bugs. Does somebody of you have children? I don't know if the first version should has an perental control or not. After that I have to write an languagefile support.... Hopefully it will be released in 2009

Oh there's one download button red...
I've released version 0.5.1.0b which is an old version of the Game Explorer. This Version shows the GUI and the possibilities with it. The Game Explorer is downloadable on my page in the Section for VisualBasic 2008: http://wwwpub.zih.tu...ming_vb2008.php

And then I want to ask if somebody could help me with the translation. I need Screenshots of an Englisch version of the original Game Explorer to see the exact titles of the menu items etc.

Thanks for help and reading,

Monty.

Works great so far.Only the GUI needs some work. I still hope for a german win7 version. Use it as it is now. Much better than nothing.

It's not possible to add games in version 0.5.1.0. At the moment I'm doing some things at the GUI, so I would make the double work if I would translate it at the moment. But you could help me with screenshots of the english version ;)
If you don't trust me that there's an custom game support, I could send you the 0.9 beta :P

Thanks for the Screenshots :)

The Version 0.5.1.0 is in Vista Style because i thought i could be ready with the project before Windows 7 is ready. That was stupid :D

Example: It's starting the DX9c version of hawx instead the DX10 version. I can't configure a game in the explorer because I would like to change the icons of some games which I added manually.
It's not the worst or life-dangering but could be better :yes:
