Simple Quake Launcher By MaxEd
Posted by MaxEd:

Simple Quake Launcher v1.0

PREAMBLE:
One day I've got tired of editing .bat files to launch Quake maps. I went online to find something similar to ZDL, but for Quake. I haven't found anything usable there (Quake Injector is a bit too cumersome for my tastes...), so I decided to make one myself.

Screenshot

FEATURES:
- Small and easy to use.
- Can detect maps in folders and .PAK files (.PK3 support is planned).

INSTALLATION:
Extract SQLauncher.exe into your Quake directory.


SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS:
Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5.
NOTICE: if you already have .Net Framework 4.0 or newer installed, you'll still need to install 3.5 version, because newer versions are not backwards compatible with it!

Not A Request 
...but more of a question for MaxED. Could you add in a way to edit the command line? There are some command line args that need to come before map. I found that in order to play Ter Shibboleth with SQL I had to select "No Map" then +sv_protocol 999 +map shib1

Or is there some other better solution? I am not thinking about power users here. I recommend SQL in posts all over the place for beginners. I had to some digging to get this mod to work with SQL. 
@ Dumptruck_ds 
i think my issue with Ter Shibboleth was relevant to what you just mentioned.

it loaded for me ok in sql, but effed up textures etc.

then i put in:
sv_protocol 999
gl_farclip 256000

then map shib1.

then it was fine.

really love sql though.

i like the filters with the quake injector, but the simplicity/user frindliness of sql makes me happy. 
 
+map should probably always be the last thing in the command line, so maybe just hard code it to the end? 
 
 
Yeah I can't think of a reason to have +map early in the command line. 
SQL Presets 
While I would never suggest making this great lil' program complicated, have you ever thought about saving more than the last ran options to your .ini file... as saved presets?

A lonnnnnng time ago I made "Modrunner95", hehe! My Win95 version of SQL. It allowed saving to the .ini file different settings/options and seemed a good feature.

As far as UI elements go it would only require the addition of a drop down combo box and a way to get a "name" for the preset from the user. A lil' bit of code to populate the box with multiple .ini file entries ofc. 
 
I agree, this would be pretty damn helpful.
