Report content RSS feed How to use the PokeGen Launcher

Welcome friends! Here I'll be showing you how to install PokeGen using the launcher, and make sure that you're informed of any subsequent updates.

Posted by on - Basic Installers

If you're reading this, you've most likely downloaded the launcher .rar file. I'm going to assume you know how to extract .rar files, but if not, you can download WinRar. WinRar is a free program which simply opens these files and allows you to extract them to a directory of your choosing.

Now, once you've got the launcher extracted, you'll notice that all files apart from the main .exe are hidden to keep things simple for new users. Make sure, however, that all of these files remain in the same directory, otherwise the launcher won't run properly.

When you open the main PokeGen.exe, you'll be presented with this window, assuming you haven't installed it yet:

In this window, all you have to do is decide where the launcher will install the main PokeGen folder. You'll be able to change this directory later however, so don't worry about being stuck in one place.
Now once the directory has been chosen, you'll be greeted by the launcher itself. The launcher will now automatically start installing PokeGen into the directory that you chose.

Once it's finished, you can click the directory path to change directories, or just hit 'PLAY' to get started!

A few things you'll notice is that the launcher is hooked up directly to the Mod DB page. This way you'll always see new updates, images, and patch notes as they're posted. The launcher will also automatically snatch any updates it finds as soon as it starts up, so you don't have to worry about being out of date.

When you press 'PLAY', PokeGen itself will start up, and you can choose your resolution and customize your control scheme. When you're ready to get into the game, just press 'Play!'.

However, if you do not feel like going through the launcher, as long as the game is installed, just navigate to the installation directory and launch the game itself.

This is a precaution taken so that you'll be able to play the game whether you're on or offline. We don't want any Diablo 3/Sims mishaps now, do we!

If you're disconnected from the internet when you start the launcher, however, you'll be given a popup box that explains the situation, and allows you to start the game from a path of your choosing.

http://media.moddb.com/images/articles/1/130/129069/auto/82413339.png

We hope you enjoy the PokeGen launcher! Please feel free to tell us any bugs or issues you're having, and we'll do our best to address them in any future updates we may have!

I have windows 7, and antivirus is not interfering with the game's installing. Although for whatever reason it won't actually install. I chose the desktop although the game never confirms the directory. It just says Path... and never changes where ever I change the location to. Please help!!!

I have extracted the files three times now (once to desktop and twice to "downloads"), and when I open the launcher, nothing happens. Furthermore, Windows won't let me delete the launcher because it apparently recognizes the program as running even though it isn't. Any help?

I'm having troubles getting the launcher to run.
I've extracted the files to a folder, all are hidden but "PokeGen" application, but when I start it (both as administer and not), and choose where to download it, nothing appears. I have AVG but an unsure if that's a problem and don't know how to unblock it if it is. Can anyone help?
Thank you.

I have extracted the rar to a folder and ran the launcher. It won't install - the loading bar saying "Calculating Differences." I've tried installing it to a number of different directories, running it as administrator, and running it in compatibility mode with no luck. I have my McAfee turned off and still nothing. Any help will be appreciated!

Okay. Can someone help me? I have a Windows 8 64 bit machine (if that matters) and when I click where I want PokeGen to be installed the PokeGen application closes without installing anything.

It does that same thing for me! It's bloody annoying! I kind of have a feeling that those of us with Windows 7 or higher are unable to play it because I ran a troubleshooting program on it and it says that it needs a Windows XP service pack 3 and is incompatible. So I have a feeling that we won't be able to play it :(

Okay. I got the installer/launcher open. I didn't change a thing. I just waited a few hours, tried again, and it worked. Good luck to you my friend.

For everybody getting the "Calculating Differences" error, it is because there is too much traffic. Shut down the launcher and try later.

TO THE PROGRAMMERS OF THIS GAME:

The game crashes because of an unhandled exception: System.Net.WebException at PokeGen.MainWindow.GetVersionFileInfo() at WpfApplication1.App.Main(). Try handling the exception by inserting the code giving the exception inside a try-catch statement.
