Frag time

It's time to kill aliens and monsters on VmwAROS: I got shareware demos of Doom and Quake running. Although they must be software rendered and run in a virtual machine, they are damn fast on modern hardware.

To help AROS gamers, I've added icons to scripts, so you can launch two or more istances of Doom simply by clicking on the right script (yes, playing two sessions on the same computer is fun).

The Games drawer of VmwAROS is getting even bigger: now it counts 21 games to run, including ltris, gemdrop-x, defendguin and others. More to come in the next weeks...
