Saw Game Loader thread there, so I randomly decided to show my own crap I've made my own quite some time ago. I'd open the source, but it's in Delphi and, also, a complete hacked together sh*te - stock components alone make over 9000% overhead when drawing. And, of course, all information must be entered by hand, pictures edited by hand, because I got bored as soon as it worked enough for me.

Main screen: Untitled.png

Edit screen: Untitled2.png

It also plays title theme (or anything really), which is extremely annoying and can't be turned off. And it's slow (relatively), because it loads the whole flat file database (approx. 200 MB for me) in memory when launched and also saves it when closing. Talk about totally fscked up design. My hard disk loves me... not. That said, itself it weighs 825KB and the required bass.dll weighs 112 more. No runtime components needed.

It also fails to run FOSE (as in - it launches, but FOSE fails afterwards - it doesn't otherwise), for some reason I couldn't figure out.
(the problem was outlined here: http://http://www.ne...lexecute-works/ )



Now, how do you liek it? Do you liek it? *psschhhffchhh*

Yes! A reply! Thank you very much, thankyouthankyoutahnkyuo... yes, yes, it is a nightmare, indeed. I had big plans, though!
