This application is a launcher for other software.
The launcher displays and launchs all your touch games from one
place. For each game in your collection, it displays a game icon, the number of players,
play duration, and other game options. It can sort the games by
name, or by number of players.
All DISC games come setup to work with the launcher, and with a
little extra effort, other software can be added to the launcher
This is a great option for a kiosk situation as the exit button
can be removed from the screen.
Launch all your touch software from one place.

Install and Setup
Run the installer and follow the prompts. You can install the
launcher anywhere, but we recommend installing in a parent
directory to your other touch software.
When the launcher is first started, it will search for games
in the directory where it is installed. If this isn't where you
installed the launcher, or you have games in more than one place,
select "Edit Directories" and enter up to 10 directories to scan
for games. These should be parent directories that have a directory
for each game. For example, if you installed your games in both
c:/program files/games and c:/program files (x86)/games/disc, you
could add both those directories to the launcher.
To play a game simply click on the game's box.
The launcher can sort the games alphabetically by name, by the
maximum number of players, by games that can support a single
player and by games that are cooperative.
- Large Boxes: If you have a small number of games or a high
resolution monitor, you can change the display to use large icons
for the games
- Show Unboxed Applications: The launcher will create an icon
for all executable files in the game directories.
- -touchOnly: Pass the -touchOnly parameter to games when they
are launched. For DISC games, -touchOnly will disable the
- -kiosk: Pass the -kiosk parameter to games when they are
launched. For DISC games, -kiosk will start the game in
fullscreen mode and will remove the "Toggle Fullscreen" buttons
from the games
- -noSplash: Pass the -noSplash parameter to games when they are
launched. For DISC games, -noSplash will skip the splash screens
as the game starts up.
Customizing other applications
To make your own icons for non-DISC software, you will need an
image to use as the icon for the application. Place that image in the
application's directory and then create an XML file like the one
below. Put both the PNG and the XML file into the non-DISC
application's root directory.
