the goal of this launcher is to simplify the launching of mods and parameters in Homeworld 2 by simply pressing the play button you are ready to go.
updated to 1.2
1.2 – Added multiple mod selection
updated to 1.3
1.3 – Added refresh buttons and optimized a ton!
Nice - gotta try this when theres time again for some Homeworld-action :)
glad you like it!
Thanks, this is great, very very useful.
Are you going to add more features?? i sugest you add "-datapath" to use with mods that aren't in .big.
Hi, you have that in File > Advanced Settings then choose the -overrideBigFile checkbox to enable :)
i know that, but it's just for the mod in the standard data folder, what i mean is like in my case were i have one wip mod in data/ and other wip mod in dataGC/ for example.
Using "-datapath" we can have multiple mods that aren't in .big .
if you want its possible to define that in custom parameters, just do it like you would with a shortcut
Alright gonna implement this in the next version of launcher :)
updated to 1.41
- Optimized a lot of inner workings, should be much quicker when checking for updates etc..

If anyone got some feedback on what i should add etc, please feel free to come with suggestions :)
