Glad you like it, there was a load more bringing the total to 105 games, but my PC did some deleting index files on bootup and has moved+renamed every file on my LF workspace to generic names.. i will sort through them at some point, thanks for bearing with me.

I don't suppose any of those games were ABC type games?

Here is some games people might want to try. They include a huge amount of icons to download in all sizes and even have the entire swf file and icons downloadable so all you have to do is combine them and upload them into the tablet.

http://www.gahe.com/

simply click on the game you want and go through the menus, no need to sign up. you can select the swf file alone of the zip with the entire collection of icons.

unfortunately.. I tried a simple peppa pig one and it installed perfectly and icons and everything worked like a charm but when I tried to play it I got booted back to the home screen on the tablet.

Hi Kris and thank you for your contributions, just wondering if you have any procedure to follow and create the games, sorry and I know it is maybe in other thread, but I couldn't find it.
I have some sfw games files already on my computer but don't know how to create the games. just wondering if you can give me a hand with that. thank you.

That site is perfect to use with the Leappad Game Genie, you'd only need to download the game swf and a logo png (82x88px) and the app will do the rest.

Its quite easy to manually edit the games, although its easier to use the app
start by making a duplicate of the template game(Gold Miner) on your PC, we'll call that our "work folder"
Every change we're about to make is in the work folder.


Editing the template game files using notepad++
  • edit "GameInfo.json"  
Change the "IconLabel" value, This is the text that will be shown on the home screen when you highlight the game.
  • edit "Meta.inf"
Change the "ProductID" + "PackageID" + "Name"
I Should Have Also Wrote:
Notice: The IconLabel and Name fields should be the same value.
Notice: The ProductID should appear as the middle section of the PackageID
Notice: It is good practice to keep track of which PackageIDs are taken to avoid installing over another game with the same ID.
  • Save both files to the work folder.
  • Rename your_downloaded_game.swf to "loader.swf" 
  • Place loader.swf in the work folder, replacing/overwriting the template file. 
I Should Have Also Wrote:Notice: The game is installable via FTP now but the artwork isn't done so it will still have the template icon and preview images.

Installing Via LeapPad Manager.

You will need 7Zip to package the files 
  • Archive the files inside the work folder into a .tar file.
  • Rename the .tar file to the PackageID of the game.
  • Install the .tar package with LeapPad Manager

I Should Have Also Wrote:Notice: The game files must be in the root of the .tar, don't tar the game folder, just the contents.


Base_DA and Preview_DA images
Use google images, Paint.NET's magic wand and USE the template images and you'll have your own icons in no time.

Base_DA.png
Width 82px
Height 88px

Preview_DA.png
Width 70px
Height 69px


I did actually knock together a small Visual Basic app that took the template from gold miner and appended a few strings from text boxes making it all very simple...
It doesn't do the artwork though.
It makes MP3 player packages too.

You can easily bundle your own SWFs into game packages with this program.
