The New Smartlaunch 4.6 New Skinning Engine

We think our new skinning engine is a real game changer and we’re really proud of it. It completely changes the concept of a static skin and transforms into into a living, dynamic and interactive launchpad for customers to be truly immersed in your gaming centers’ or internet cafe experience. Rebuilt from the ground-up, our skinning engine makes setting up user accounts a breeze while keeping it fun, interactive, and it looks pretty damn awesome too. Much credit and appreciation goes to Ruben Oanta from the awesome Ignite Network Gaming Lounge in Chicago for helping us build this exciting new interface and engine.
