This is another option to launch TFO apart from Steam, I've also added command line possibilities. Basic Console and Performance Fix check boxes. As well as a command line box for adding more stuff if you want to!

To install/use the launcher just export it to any directory, for example your desktop.
You don't need to worry about setting up directories, the launcher checks through your registry. Hence that this means it checks for steam folder path!
Which means non-steam will probably not work!

Error code: "Sourcemods or Steam folder not found!"
If this issue occurs you've most likely installed steam/sourcemods outside the regular or you're using non-steam.
For now the launcher won't support that.


- Allows you to open TFO directly
- Allows you to set specific command arguments, such as -console and +cl_forcepreload 1 and +sv_forcepreload 1 ( performance fixes ).
- Allows you to set extra launch commands if you wish so, check the included readme file for available options!

Changes for v2.3.0:
- The launcher now auto-saves your configuration such as console, perf fix check and custom commands in the command line.

Thanks, nice feature!
Tried using the launcher, it launched Steam and a dialog popped up in the background asking me if I want to convert Source SDK Base 2007 files to a 'new, more efficient format' (evidently SteamPipe). This dialog prevented TFO from launching, and the launcher prevented me from selecting that dialog ;) finally, I had to use the task manager to shut down the launcher and cancel the conversion to SteamPipe.

I remember your advice to use a non-SteamPipe SDK Base. How should I deal with this? Won't the conversion harm the stability of the mod?

Yeah since this launcher must open appID 218 while then processing it to the sourcemod that will cause source sdk base to ask for you to update it cause you are "kinda" launching sdk base 2007 with a command argument. SteamPipe works fine on TFO but the many updates that Valve keep releasing breaks the SDK Base that's why I added some old archives on the mod homepage so you can stay away from the ****** updates.

Tho this launcher is a good thing to have, it makes a few things easier so I'd recommend you to get steampipe.

As for the dialog, its on top of anything, you just have to minimize it if you want to select anything behind it...
