    Sounds (and looks) like Grunch.

    Things that seem to be missing:
    - option for uninstall
    - checking and installing needed libraries etc

    Nice prog!!
    Window verticaly should be more scalable to minimize - defauilt is too big...
    Scrolling file-lists should also be possible with mouse-wheel.

    I would agree with Amigaharry2 on that point.

    @ Papiosaur - maybe a MUI Balance gadget could be added to allow resizing of inner sections of the GUI window elements and the inner GUI image, and any ReadMe/document GUI window size when required? 8-)

    It seems you need to activate the specific file list window for it to allow scrolling in that window, but when it is active it works OK for me, as it does for Papiosaur. ;-)

    @ Papiosaur - I would suggest there be sorting options in each field to allow them to be sorted into some sort of order, as required, be that for filename alphabetically, numerically, or BOOL, etc.. ;-)

    The minimise button only moves the window to the far left of the screen, and up a bit, but does not reduce the size of the window at all, as the GUI elements seem to be set as 'fixed' in the GUI window so they cannot reduce the window size in that way. :-(

    It also seems to need an App.icon for when it is iconified. ;-)

    It will be a way to replace Grunch, to some extent, seeing as it does not support 'https' currently. :-(
    So some great work so far, and Kudos to you (Papiosaur) and beworld for taking the time to make it happen. :-D

    @ Amigaharry2 - Choose some files that fill that field/window and once you choose a file in that window it should make the window active and allow you to scroll through the available files.

    I just clicked on the Audio (Categories) and then clicked on the first file, and the window then became active and allowed mouse-wheel scrolling. So, I hope that makes it work for you too. 8-D

    I mentioned to Papiosaur some issues that are worthy of fixing, which he has already responded to me directly, but I mention here so other users know that these issues have been identified to him already, so they don't get duplicated unnecessarily. 8-)

    They are in the GUI:

    Hiden URL/Size - should be spelled - Hidden URL/Size (2 'd's) (a minor spelling point)
    Ram should be CAPITALISED - to - RAM (Download archive to RAM:) as it is an abbreviated acronym (a minor point)

    Hope to can try it soon. Images are really interesting.
    Can destination folders be global configured or only per entry?
    I see games in Sys:games/ but I usually have work:games/ and change it game per game or app per app could be very tedious.
