At some point we need to revisit this because I don't like what we have now.


No it's not that important but it's polish that will need to be done.


The earliest might be... oh I don't know maybe in May.
I foresee dealing with settings and cheats for all of March and part of April.

If we are indeed are heading down the C++ route long term, then the newer about i feel would be must nicer (Animated)

Ok finally completed this damn thing in C++
I think to be honest it would be better to launch the about.exe from pj's help about menu as i have included website and devboard links from the standalone exe.
In Main.c
Line 1202         case ID_HELP_ABOUT: ShellExecute(NULL, "open", "About.exe", NULL, NULL, SW_SHOWDEFAULT); break;
then add the about.exe to resource.
Source, exe and gif below attached

Ok made the exe in focus this time and able to minimize, but would be nice to have the exe close when main exe closes also?

in current source:

Line 1172        case ID_HELP_ABOUT: ShellExecute (NULL, "open", "About.exe", NULL, NULL, SW_SHOWDEFAULT); break;

What i am thinking is to have pj check for the about.exe on clicking Help/About Project64 and if not there directing to a download link? (if it is not intended to be part of the installation release)

Maybe make a self extracting archive to place it in the root directory also?

For the record, I really like this, looks and feels nice.

Anyway source added below with a video
