Did anyone try this launcher from ToughKid for the GR8NET cartridge? Using version v0.14b(beta) from http://toughkidmsx.appspot.com/ i get the browsing part working, however activating any type of file always falls back to the DOS prompt. It looks really as a promising extension on the build in net browser, giving the possiblity to act on various types of file name extensions and selection multiple net locations.

I guess it could have something to do with incorrect path settings. However i added already the path to this launcher, as well as the bin folder, to the DOS search path.

Some example videos of how it should work:
GDir test 1 and GDir test 2

Very interesting!!!
I try it, I can browse and I can launch files. It works.
The instructions say Press [SPACE] to launch selected file but if I press SPACE it falls back to the DOS prompt instead if I press ENTER I can launch files, games ecc.
I press always ENTER and it works. Maybe there's a mistake in the instructions.
I will continue to test all other features

When i use ENTER it opens a file viewer and displays the content of the file in stead of launching the related application (note for ROM files it does seem to work i.e. it falls back to DOS but after restarting the computer it does reboot with the rom image active).

Edit: for roms with the mapper type in the name (like is described in the GR8NET manual) it immediately launches the ROM using ENTER.
