RK Launcher 0.4 Beta

RK Launcher 0.4 Beta

Launch shortcuts with style!

Description

RK Launcher is an application that will allow the user to have a visually pleasing bar at the side of the screen that is used to quickly launch shortcuts. With support for themes, PNG's and ICO's and with smooth amazing animations, RK Launcher is a versatile and great taskbar replacement.

(more info can be found in this thread: previous release)

Notes

Because RK Launcher is still in development and not all requested features have been implemented yet I chose to call this release 0.4 Beta.

Download

Thanks

Special thanks to: Ave, Geoffrey.Elliott, Herd who helped me alot in the development with their knowledge and also to all the others from Aqua-Soft who helped in testing and releasing this application especially: nightcrawler, Vladas, bolero, Larsen and Evan.

Bugs

This version may contain bugs please report them in the appropriate thread.

Todo list

The following things will be the first to be implemented in the upcomming version 0.5 Beta

- dock resize from separator

- drag files onto icons to open applications

- dock position slider

- always on bottom option

- configure dialog for effects

- configure minimize position from settings

- remember application icons

A new requests thread will be open soon to update this list ;)

Would be helpfull I guess if you also give your systemspecs (including GFX card) if you complain about the genie effect being slow/not working....

AMD Thunderbird 1GHz

nVidia GeForceFX5500OC

Graphics card should be fast enough, although WindowFX says nVidia cards don't support things like this and have to use a "fallback" mode for higher speeds...

I know my CPU isn't very fast, so I'm not complaining about the lag before the effect starts. But the effect itself is slow.

There you go, nVidia problems.

Running on DX9c as well. So that can't be the problem.

Radu, if you can find out how the "fallback" mode works and get it into RK, we all nVidia users would really appreciate it.

If there's an nVidia user here without any problems, I'd like to hear from him.
