MenuMaker for GLaunch  by Ken Rager

   

 

Welcome Home Arcade Enthusiast!

MenuMaker for GLaunch is a add-on program to be used with GLaunch. It will allow you to build and edit favorites lists from your arcade cabinet's controls. Hooking up your keyboard and mouse to the arcade's computer is not necessary, except the first time you use MenuMaker. If you have a lot of games on your arcade, you can create a favorites list with only the games you play often.

What is GLaunch? GLaunch, or Game Launcher, is a menu type program that allows you to play your arcade games. It was written by Dave Dribin.

Glaunch is a real neat program, however I did desire to create game lists that will allow me to keep my favorite games in a list by themselves,

MenuMaker for Glaunch is a program that will allow me to do that.

MenuMaker will let you build your favorites list, add games to it, or take them away from it.

MenuMaker can be run from the arcade cabinetís Player One controls, so your favorites lists can be created and edited without hooking up the keyboard and mouse. MenuMaker does require that the keyboard and mouse be connected to set it up the first time.

Requirements:

MenuMaker only runs in Windows 98 and up. Currently it has only been tested on WinXP.

Glaunch must already be configured on your Arcadeís computer to run Mame Games.

You must have mame games (called ROMs) already on your computer.

MenuMaker , Glaunch, and Mame are all free programs, the games ROMs are not. Please read the legal statement on the Mame website.

After it is finished downloading, double click it and follow the install instructions.

You may install it wherever you want, but it is suggested you use the location recommended by the install setup program.

I am small and tricky - where you think I am, I probably am not. I can work very fast, but I tend to go about things in a round about way, which often leaves me effectively standing still. I hate rocks. Bloody rocks. What Video Game Character Are You?
