My launcher save all emulator settings for each game.

Once configuraded the game will be direct launched with the saved configurations.

To cancel auto load hold SHIFT before open the game.

Looks good. A couple of suggestions if you accept these :).
English version or option to change the language (and save that setting).
Since games are dumped from CDs, binary files are called (ISO) images, not roms.

Also it crashed when I tried to configure emulator. It seems like it's trying to read non existing file.
Are you saving files from the registry on the root of the system drive?

Why your Frontend is trying to write Files into my systems Rootdirectory?

thats no system error...
To write at C:\<any file> are highest Adminprivileges needed.

An so eminent Fail must be fixed at first Priority! Thats a security issue...
With this your Program never will run at users machines.(Except some reckless Plungers they always and everthing run as full admin)
Hint:
Never let programs write into systems relevant folders. this can trouble always...
Better you can export the settings into the users scope, like %USERPROFILE%\Documents\PSX_Launcher\
This are one line code to Fix this...

The next issue is the Language:
I'm German. Portuguese isn't my favorite and vice versa;). English I've learned by myself. If I'm doing something publicly for an international audience, I try as possible to write everything in more or less understandable English.
If some grammar is wrong, i have no worry about... Pidgin is the Future:D

To change in your code some words into english , can not be so hard...

PS: my post about advertising and this one is not meant nasty...
it should help you

I am cooking also only with water. But i do it since very long time...
if you need some help by a gray animal with a big head... i've Time to waste...:rolleyes:

Ok 1º thanks for the help,
2º "i may make this on future." i was talking about the translation,
3º "%USERPROFILE%\Documents\PSX_Launcher\" won't will solve the admin problem, this problem is caused for use REGEDIT, right now i studing a better way to do that, i wish to make a system that be able to watch PS1 emultor reg entry changes and save a backup but for now is working and is what i capable to do.
4º i from brazil thats why is on portuguese, i create for some noob and lazy friend who wanted launch ps1 games on steam.

i will clean the code and formulate some questions directed for enhance some parts of my frontend, and i would be thankful if u be able to help me.

and sorry for poor eng.

Is it possible to save a different graphic setting per game?
At the current version, no.
Only if you manualy manage that by save the profile folders, but it can be implemented in future vesion.
