I need an app launcher, for a single app, not the popular kind.

I make Windows videogames, and my latest engine doesn't let you select screen resolutions. I could change it so it does, but I'd rather make a small program that first lets you choose resolution (and set fullscreen and such), then launches the game app. But then wait (I said in my head), hasn't someone already created this launcher tool? Please help me out. Have they? [more inside]

Can I get more than one app to run in kiosk mode on a Microsoft Surface

I need to put some games on a few Microsoft Surface RT tablets for use in a coffee shop by kids while Mammy and Daddy are sipping their coffee. I'm no expert but is there a way to do that while restricting access to the computers' settings by customers?

I'm THIS close to playing my favorite computer game on VirtualBox. THIS close.

After much grueling labor and self-denial, I have created a virtual Windows 98 machine on my macbook using VirtualBox, all in the name of playing my favorite computer game from high school. The only problem? The most colors the virtual machine wants to display is 16, and this game requires at least 256. Ugh. How to remedy this? [more inside]

Video games for my stepdad since his stroke?

What are some easy computer games my stepdad can play? He had a stroke a few years ago, and that has seriously limited what kind of games he can manage. He sits at home all day and plays non-stop Solitaire and FreeCell. I figure there's got to be some better options for him. [more inside]

Scanning XBox disc for bad sectors

Is there any software (preferably for OSX) that I can use to scan a used XBox disc for bad sectors? The format is DVD, so I suppose a normal DVD scanning program could do the job. I just want to be sure that the whole game works before my guarantee expires and I'm unable to return it.
