    Since you're already having problems with it, why don't you try Playnite? It's free and open-source, and works really well. It's just tedious to setup everything since it doesn't merge repeated games in the same entry. | 2021-06-07

    You could give Playnite a try, it's an amazing launcher that's open source, very lightweight, can even launch emulated games and supports scripting (like running an app before you launch a game and closing it after). If you care about achievements, there is an extension called success story for playnite but sadly I don't believe it supports pirated copies.

    I made that theme and I would try to do that but unfortunately it's not possible via custom theme and needs to be added as a feature in Playnite itself. There's an open issue for this feature:
  • [Humble Bundle] Humble Choice June 2021: Civilization VI Platinum Edition, Secret Neighbor, Stubbs the Zombie in Rebel Without a Pulse, Worms Rumble, Paw Paw Paw, Effie, Disjunction, Going Under, Panzer Paladin, Milky Way Prince, Desolate, Ikenfell ($12 for 12 games offer) | 2021-06-01
    I recommend checking Playnite, which is an open source and in my opinion better alternative for library manager. It's very light in resource usage and has good performance. | 2021-06-01
    Playnite also does this and more, and isn't tied to any one store.

    I use Playnite plus its many great extensions.
  • Humble integration? | 2021-05-23
    There's no download support for Humble plugin because there's no general download support in Playnite yet. I have not added any simplified install via "download link creation", because then you would still have to manually install the game and then set up install info manually in Playnite, since every game can have different way of installing itself.
