Minimal Launcher

PRESENTATION


 The minimal launcher is a visual interface that provides you an easy way to organize and  launch your tables.

  • The right column tells you if the table is a "Native" ( upt file ) or "Import" ( ftp file ).
  • The minimal launcher  displays the selected table thumbnail (table loading screen) on the left part of the launcher. This thumbnail is generated at the first launch of the table, so, you don't have to do anything to add it to the launcher.
  • The minimal launcher can also display a background image. When you're playing a table, push the Keypad Minus key (by default) to capture and save this background image(different if desktop or cab mode).

 Interactions

 Interactions can be done using the mouse, or using GamePlay Action Buttons:

  • Left/Right Flippers to select a table
  • "Start" to launch selected table table

Pushing the MainMenu action key, enables the edition feature.
In this mode you'll see this before each table name: 


  • Clicking on the left arrow makes the selected table go UP.
  • Clicking on the right arrow makes the selected table go DOWN.
  • Clicking on the cross removes the table from the list.
