Yeah, that'd be fine.

Just so you know, I'm also experimenting with video playback for games.



The thing is, I'm not sure if this really works for Big Blue. There's so much going on on the screen, it's almost too much. Also, I'd have to work out some way for the video audio to not really interfere with the frontend game audio.

What do you think?

Personally, I prefer snaps over video. I think that if you want to give users the option, then video audio should be heard and frontend audio is silent with exception to the navigation sounds you here.

Just released a new version. The R-Type ship can now set the Rampage characters on fire with its plasma trail.

I've added a ton of things since the last post:

* Video previews
* Multi-monitors
* Multiple inputs
* Mouse support

...and way more.

How do you feel about the stability of it? That's my main complaint about every front end that I have tried. They simply crash after a while.

I used GameEx for many years as I have had the privilege to make install video for the developer Tom Speirs. It has been pretty good to me.
However, Big Blue has really grown since it started here. Unlike any other frontend, you can play minigames on the actual frontend. This I have never seen anywhere else.

THat is a killer front end... Just wonder how did you make this? if you don't mind sharing.. I have a idea for one using a kustom kulture theme.. I did not know you can do this much with a front end.
