Version 1.3 of Gossamer's Bad Company 2 Launcher.
Gossamer's Bad Company 2 Launcher
This tool is meant for players to be able to modify settings that are not changeable from the In-Game settings menu. These are normally found in the settings.ini file in your MyDocuments\BFBC2.
What this application does is load all your settings in and allows you to change them all, save them directly back to the settings.ini file then directly launch your game.
+ Directly Launch Bad Company 2
+ Change Every Single Graphics Option (Including Direct X Level, Field of View, Shadows Detail, etc)
+ Clean GUI-based application for easy navigation
+ Works with Steam, Retail, Direct 2 Drive copies and more
+ Change your connection port to solve multiplayer issues with multiple people on the same router!
+ Many more features!
This is the first launcher built for Bad Company 2, enjoy!
PS: I have tested this with 3 Steam-Based users and 2 Retail user (Online Activation Method)
I just played BF3's open beta for the first time.
First thing I noticed was that I could only change my video settings while in an actual match. I'm rather confused on why DICE would do this, but it probably has something to do with the fact that the game doesn't have a main menu, it only has Battlelog (The web interface for the game) and it probably can't edit encrypted files.
Since the settings were encrypted, I was expected very granular settings within the game so that I could change everything. NOPE! I was wrong. You can change more than BC2 allowed you to, but it's still not enough, especially after the fact that they don't let us edit our settings easily anymore.
This means that unless you break out your favourite Hex editor, you won't be getting rid of bloom anytime soon or finely tuning your game to work on that older rig of yours.
Maybe this will change for the game's actual release, but I have my doubts.
What are your opinions on this?
