I had the alt-tab hack and app launcher just froze the computer. I removed the hack and it work hack and it worked, but now that i have rebooted it has stopped working again. Freezes every time. I made a similar plugin to launch the DVD Player only, and that works fine. It would be nice to just make a list of apps like this plugin does or to be able to sort plugins into some kind of submenu system so that I could set up to launch VLC and DVD Player and other apps

Any suggestion on why it doesn't work but did breifly?

Sure can... that's how I'm calling sdl-mame in the CLArgs I specify not only the 'short-rom-name' but also the location where sdl-mame is to get/read its config ini file.

Hi Dave, can you share with us how your applist.txt config file looks in order to launch games through a command line argument? I'm trying to do the same using ZSNES emulator, but I can't get the app to launch a specific rom file.

For instance, i'm trying to launch Super Mario Kart (smk.smc) via the following:

SMK,/Users/frontrow/Applications/ZSNES.app/Contents/MacOS/ZSNES /Users/frontrow/Roms/smk.smc

however, the app does not launch. If i ssh to appletv and run the same command line + argument, the game runs fine. any thoughts?

Anyone able to get Joost working using this? When I tried Joost did launch but it was behind FR. When I killed FR I could see it back there and then FR took over again.

Is this only working when AppleTV OS is installed? I have the 'Front Row Replacement' ATV installed on regular Mac OS X, and whenever I select an application from the menu, the screen goes black, then the menu fades back in but is uncontrollable. I have to forcibly quit [Front|Back]row.

Any ideas?

Try the AppLauncher plug-in..........it should do exactly what you want it to, but I haven't tried using Joost yet.......that'll be my project for the next 5 mins

Has anyone figured out how to take control of the IR so we can have a button sequence to exit out of the App that we launched? Or do we just need to build Apple IR support and an exit function into our programs?

It is really a good thread started by you. We can see in replies. Now we have many plug ins in this thread by replies. These are really useful.
