Figured I would post this here, I created a theme that adds a few features like hiding games and grouping by genre

Hi wanted to kno a bit about future development of Desura. I kno things are being worked on and I see there may be future development of a chat module based on what I can see in the theme files but I wanted to kno if I would be @ cross purposes by introducing an Ajax based chat module / modification. It's pretty much the only feature I think is missing from the Desura interface and the standalone web prog i found should fit the bill quite nicely if I can blend it in seamlessly ....

Here's the GitHub feature request for chat if you want to keep an eye on it. At the moment, they're still working to get the new build system complete and solid so future development and releases will be much simpler.

The main concern I see with using a custom theme to add web-based chat is how difficult it would be to migrate users to a native chat system later on.

Would a script for setting icons on non-Desura games in Linux Desura's Play list be an appropriate thing for this group? (I've written one that's at version 0.2 and I'd be willing to write an article with screenshots when I release 0.3 if you guys are interested.)

does anyone know anymore user launch options besides the -ui one?
Ive looked everywhere and that's the only one i find.
specifically i need one to force a game to run in fullscreen.

User launch options are part of the game, not part of Desura. What game do you need to force fullscreen?

Any chance of a forum to discuss/share ideas on themeing/tweaking Desura? (I'm working on a small tweak via a theme to allow toggling of Demo visibility in the gamelist)
