Hey! It's the official release of the Winnitron v2! All the major features should now be implemented even though there is room for improvement. Launching and force quitting should all work well now.

Thanks to everyone who helped test: Ludonaut, Daniel, Dylan, and the rest of the Winnipeg Game Jam crew!

Please let us know if you have any issues or tell us about you game or arcade machine build.


  • New and improved force quitting and game handling
  • Included .BAT file for improved windowless border mode! Please use this when launching.


  • Now Oopses when it can't find the settings JSON
  • Jukebox music restarts properly on game quit
  • Checks for changed metadata during sync
  • Sends custom user-agent header on sync
  • Improved AHK templates (still could use work)
  • Reports launcher version with sync
  • Hides mouse cursors on game launch
  • Launcher should no longer get stuck on manual sync
  • Ouput_log.txt writes timestamps now
  • Attract screens should no longer have games selected in background
  • More buttons trigger games to launch

Watch out!

  • If you're upgrading from 2.0-rc1 or 2.0-rc2, be aware that some of the keys in winnitron_options.json have changed. Make sure they match, otherwise you'll get defaults only
