This launcher allows players to easily edit hidden graphics settings such as DirectX Level, FoV, Water Detail, Shadows detail and many many more!

Gossamer's Bad Company 2 Launcher
Version 1.0

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
+ 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)


You will need an archiver program capable of opening up .RAR files in order to extract the program. Once you have the program extracted, proceed to run it.

Since it is your first time running the Launcher, it will ask you to point the launcher to where Bad Company 2 is installed. There are three check boxes at the top, Retail (CD Activation), Steam and Retail (Online Activation). Once you determine what version of bad company 2 you are running, select the appropriate check box and click the browse button and select the EXE file that matches the example located above your browse button.

After selecting the file, proceed to save your settings. Then close the launcher options box. You will now be presented by the main interface where you can change all the settings.

Once you have changed your settings accordingly, click the "Save Settings" button at the bottom center. Then click "Launch Bad Company 2" button and the game should launch.

Did anybody see if it works without logging into admin (when UAC is on)?

I'm not sure if it does.

Isn't this just a rip off of Liseda's configurator? It uses the same screenshot and style, even....

That one even has more options and auto-detects your game path...uh...why does this exist, then?

Liseda's even has a view-distance slider...this does not.

this is not a rip off, I was not even aware of that configurator when I made mine. It doesn't even look similar either.

That one doesn't have more options from what I've seen in a screenshot. Mine doesn't use autodetection because that requires tapping into the registry files (where your key is stored) and some people can be paranoid.

I don't know how he/she added in a view-distance slider because I haven't seen any option that relates to view-distance.

Question, Once i save my settings and i want to keep them at that. Do i need to always use the launcher to play with those settings, or launching it from steam work too. I mean it does save my INI file right? so either way of launching the game should be same settings?
