    Hello everybody,

    As I download a lot of games I ended not being able witch game I own, where it is what's it's version...

    So I decided to make a game manager, as I'm globally satisfied with the result I decided to share it with the F95zone community.

    What it does :
    • Gets games descriptions and link to corresponding thread here from an online database I keep updated.
    • For each game you can set up where it is installed and you can launch it.
    • Games are sortable by time updated, last time played, alphabetical order...
    • You can filter games by tags, prefexes (included or excluded)
    If you don't want to use it maybe you will find useful things on the website :
    • An rss feed to last updates on F95zone, it's not perfect but you can use it until it's added here.
    • A list of games that you can filter by tags and/or prefixes (included or excluded). It's based on my database so it won't always be up to date, I update it almost every day except when I'm on holidays.
    Here is the link :

    PS : a month ago I didn't know anything about bootstrap, so there might be some display bugs on the website.

    @tid Great Work! With all these games being release on a daily basis in various stages of development, a program like yours definitely helps ;) I'd suggest to opensource the application, you could get quite some help that way, if you wan't to. Plus people might be more inclined to download it, since they know what's in it.

    I'm ok to put it open source but I've used windev, and I'm not sure that much people here can use it. (

    A little update :
    Author filter was searching authors ending by your input (I made an SQL error ;) ).
    Now both Author and Game name filters are searching results containing your input.

    V1.0.30.1 :
    - Updated the update system :p before it was downloading a zip file then you had to unzip it manually. Now there is an updater that will download the latest version and unzip it automatically.
    - Changed compilations options : dlls are no longer included in gamelist.exe, so if updater detects that you already have the last framework version, it will only download the exe file (1Mo instead of 40). Last digit of version number indicates framework version.

    There are now more then 2k games in the database.
