An Alternative to the Official Simutronics Game Entry

gameentry is a replacement for the standard Simutronics Game Entry for use with Simutronics games.

gameentry was developed to address some issues and lack of features i perceived in the offical SGE.

does it actually work?

gameentry is a full-featured program, and includes all functionality present in the official SGE with one notable exception, gameentry skips the Simutronics Launcher and launches the selected front end directly. gameentry also includes a number of extended features including:

  • storing of recently used account names
  • optional encrypted storage of account passwords
  • account name completion
  • remembers the following information:
    • last selected game per account
    • last selected character per game (per account)
    • last selected game client per character (per game, per account)
  • search-as-you-type functionality for game and character listboxes
  • built-in game client update checking and installation
version 2.0 feature list
  • news and announcement feeds
    • pulled for last game that a character was logged in to
    • better "search-as-you-type" logic
      • type "gsplat" and select "GemStone IV Platinum"

gameentry binaries and source code are provided for download under version 2 of the GNU General Public License. the terms and conditions of the GPL license are available in the included LICENSE.TXT file and also available at

gameentry binaries are available in full setup (gameentry-x.x-setup.msi) and raw binary (gameentry-x.x-binary.rar) packages. if this is your first time downloading gameentry, i suggest downloading the latest full setup version to ensure you have all the necessary system files and other dependencies. if you've downloaded gameentry before, you should be safe downloading the raw binary verion and just replacing the old binary. both packages include latest copies of LICENSE.TXT and CHANGELOG.TXT.

a number of users have asked if gameentry has a feature to delete accounts from the program's account list. currently, there is no option, but it is planned to be added to version 2.0. in the mean time, there is a registry merge file available for download that will clear the account list. it can be downloaded here. just double-click the file (or right-click and select "merge") to merge the file into your registry.
