Thanks for your work on this! Unfortunately I am unable to report having success with your launcher. It seems to try to launch as Steam will say "Playing Dreadnought" but then it goes away and nothing happens. I tested the regular launcher and launched the game, so I know my Dreadnought install is working. Any ideas?
It would fail if it cannot find the files it's looking for. Possible reasons are that you've got it in the wrong folder (see first post), that you've changed the "Start In" folder in the Steam shortcut (needs to be the same folder where you put it), or I just thought that if a 32bit version of the game exists it currently won't try to launch that, either.
Sorry this was originally a quick 10 lines of code hack, even though it's grown a bit when I added the version check I didn't add any user interaction so far, i.e. no visible error messages for now.
edit: updated to v2.1 which will tell you the reason it failed. download and try with that.
Thanks I will try the new version. Definitely not the wrong folder. I put your launcher in the same folder as the game launcher like your directions said. Copy pasta'ed the full directory into the Steam shortcut. My directory is really simple:
Target: "D:\Games\Dreadnought\Snibs Dreadnought Steam Launcher.exe"
Start in: "D:\Games\Dreadnought\"
As for the 32bit, I'm not sure how it would try and start that. I haven't run anything 32 bit in almost a decade
I'll get the new launcher and see what error I get. Thanks again.
