Hi guys, thanks for your platform.

I'm going to try to collect some of things that I've finding in the platform that you guys could incorporate (if you consider possible) in the next updates.

I don't want to create sveral topics to avoid the flood, so, feel free to reply here and accept whatever you consider interesting.

 

Improvements

  • When the launch is built, the project needs to be reopened.
  • When clone for a new page, objects are not shown in its window.
  • The "rename" page, doesn't work properly (click on it, and nothing happens).
  • If you add caption, the launcher's design is moved some pixels down.
  • The launcher window can't be move freely along your desktop if you do click, drag and drop.
  • The splash window panel, can't be closed.

 

New features

  • Change launcher's .ICO from the GLC itself.
  • Offer the posibility to pack the game with launcher/data folder, to avoid hide, move or other tricks. The idea is that user click the launcher and so, the game.
  • Add other functions, like maximize, minimize, to make custom caption as alternative the default.

 

I love this platform, but I feel it needs to be a bit polished. New features would be great.

Thanks for this, and continue the great job!

Hey Cesar,

Glad to have you on-board my friend! Let me address your points:

Posted by: @netherware

When the launch is built, the project needs to be reopened.

Yes we can look into relaunching the editor once the launcher is built.

When clone for a new page, objects are not shown in its window.

I don't understand, cloning of pages works fine here. The page clones and the objects are listed. If you don't see the new page or objects inside the dialogs, you can click the Green (R) on the dialog to refresh it.

The "rename" page, doesn't work properly (click on it, and nothing happens).

I can't confirm this bug. Cloning of pages works and renaming of pages works just fine here...

If you add caption, the launcher's design is moved some pixels down.

There's not much we can do about this. This is a Windows constraint because you are force-drawing a caption bar (title) you will simply need to accommodate this in your designs.

The launcher window can't be move freely along your desktop if you do click, drag and drop.

You can do this, you just need to enable 'Allow Window to be Dragged by Mouse' in the launcher properties.

The splash window panel, can't be closed.

This is by design. However, I will look into an option to disable this.

Change launcher's .ICO from the GLC itself.

This is something that's already on the roadmap but no ETA atm.

Offer the posibility to pack the game with launcher/data folder, to avoid hide, move or other tricks. The idea is that user click the launcher and so, the game.

This can already be achieved. Please see this tutorial here.

Add other functions, like maximize, minimize, to make custom caption as alternative the default.

This is all already possible, however maximize can never be possible because you choose in the editor whether you want a fullscreen or window launcher...

Cheers

Danny

Ok, thanks for consider fix some of them in the future and resolve some of my doubts.

Some issues you say that they work fine, in my case it doesn't work. As the rename page after cloning.

About the portable game launcher tutorial, that's still a trick xD It's not a function to compile everything (launcher+game) from editor, but... well, I can try several tricks to go on ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

About the caption bug, you could repositioning the launcher design if caption is enabled. If not, this function does not make sense if design is going to be cutted-off.

Please don't take my words personally, I want this platform to be better and more user-friendly.

Thanks againg for your continue support. 👍

Hey Cesar,

Sure thing, feedback is always appreciated and welcome. We do work to feedback, especially feedback posted here on the forum. It helps us when we come to perform updates to track down this kind of feedback in making the software better.

Keep providing feedback, we can't get enough and we will continue to refine Game Launcher Creator into being the best on the market.

Cheers

Danny
