3.55
Fixed the QuickNav function.
Thanks to Chad.

3.54
Bug correction (Shift + S was not working in 3.53) + code optimisation.
Thanks to Julien for the bug report.

3.53
-For reminder, in the browser you still can jump to a letter of your choice by
holding 'up' on the 1 item.
You can now jump using the keyboard by using 'SHIFT + Letter'. 

3.52
- Fix the sound when you select a game..

3.51
- Get rid of an annoying background noise when quitting some games.
- Scroll menu accelerated. (Why I did not do that earlier ? )

3.4
2 Bugs fixed in the Favorites. (Thanks Tempus.g)

3.3
- Plays mods from an assigned path
- Free from external library
- Scan from SysConfig & route the user if no database is found.
- F5 to refresh/sort your favorites items
- Covers directory is now settable.
- Covers on-demand (with the C key).
- Code optimisation.


3.2
- Classy Names improvement (manage ‘&’ this is cool for Bubble & Squeak for
example).
- Some paths were hard coded for DH0: (issues at launch and scan).
- Scan from the root drawer is now possible.
- Scan works if you put all games at the root too (not in A/ B/ C/…
directories).
- Jump is faster and you won’t notice anymore you are using TinyLauncher.
- Correction keys on Sysconfig.
- New font.

3.1
- Screenshots support (
Copy your IFF [all ECS Screens are supported] into S:TinyLauncher/Covers/
Files must be named this way:
NameOfTheSlave + _SCRx + .IFF
x is a number between 0 and 9
I recommend using:
0 for the Coverbox
1 for the TitleScreen
2,3,4 for the Ingame screens
…followed by posters

But then it’s up to you!

Example : BarbarianPalace_SCR0.IFF

Screen will cycles  and loop after ~3 flash on the item. (~6 flash when you
enter the browser)

As examples my BarbarianPsygnosis Sshots (coverbox, ingame, poster) you have
seen on my YT video. 

coming soon: ready2use screenshots.

)

This update concerns the RAD!
The RAD Disk isn't resident in memory anymore: It means that you won't have to
shutdown the Amiga using the power supply to kill it anymore. There is no
reasons for not using the RAD if you own a little amount  of memory. This is a
really nice feature.
-"B" to switch the scripts from HD to CD (Check Infodesk for its status).
-Sysconfig will accept CD0:Directory if DH0:Directory exist (So you can modify
your path to CD0: before making your ISO).

How to make a compilation for the CD32 (for example).
1/Prepare your system on DH0: (Tinylauncher, kickstarts, whdload, etc and verify
that everything is working)
2/Activate the RAD Disk ('R' key).
3/ Switch from "Boot:HD" to "Boot:CD" ('B' key, check the InfoDesk panel for the
status)
4/ Change your paths to CD0:Directory (in the Sysconfig panel)
5/ Make you iso & burn it.

-"P" to switch from "320x200" to "320x256" for full screen on PAL computers.

-"F5" on the bouncing screen avoid the "Jump" function.
-"ESC" to avoid the bouncing animation.
(Don't need the library anymore, thanks PMC)

1.7

You can press "c" at any time to call the Sysconfig screen.
You can press "r" to force the RAD to save the maximum of memory (Check Infodesk
