Gavilya: Version is now available

This version add the game scanner and more.

A new version of Gavilya is available and it brings several new features, such as the new Win32 game scanner and more.

Game Scanner

The new game scanner popup

When adding a Win32 game to Gavilya, you can now scan a particular directory to find all available executables inside of it and inside of its subdirectories. This can be particularly useful if you have a hard drive dedicated to games and don’t know where are the games executables located.

Random game

The random game button

If you have a lot of games available in your library, it can sometimes be hard to make a choice. This why we also added back an old feature of Gavilya: Random game selection. In the home page, you will notice a new lightbulb icon next to the “You may like…” section. Clicking this icon will take you to a random game page. This feature can be useful if you really don’t know which game you want to play.

More customization options

The keyboard shortcuts section of the search settings

Finally, we added new customization options and settings. You can now disable the search shortcut (Control+K) in the settings. Plus, it is now possible the pin the main window so it always stays on top of others.
