I am currently developing a launcher for openMSX similar to blueMSX Launcher. I am using Java, and therefore the launcher can run on Windows, Linux, FreeBSD and MacOS (and basically any system where Java Runtime Environment is installed). There's a long way to go, but I feel that what I have so far can be shared with others. This beta version already supports scanning storage devices for MSX software, and is fully translated to 17 languages. I tested the launcher mainly on Windows and briefly on other systems. If you're interested, please give it a try and let me know what you think.

You can find the zip file at this location:

Once I get to a 1.0 release, I'll figure out where to host it, and I will also release the source.
Note: this launcher will only work on JRE version 1.6 or higher. The included README file describes how to run and configure it.

Hey. Although I must say that I HATE JAVA with all my heart, I think that's really a nice effort.
openMSX lacks what normally makes a product successful: easy to use!
Congratulations and keep up the good work.
