Regshot.

Could someone do a quick Regshot please? Regshot doesn't like me.

Clean

Regshot is clean. The game works well.

I would recommend adding the ability to alter the relative path (we're doing that with all PAL 2.1 apps now that it's working).

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Okay,

That has to do with DirectoryMoveOK and the *PartialDir variables, correct?

I'll go ahead and do that. Since this is a very early preview, I'll wait to push a release with that enabled though.

Sure

So people can test just post the updated launcher.ini Smile

Updated.

The XonoticPortable.ini file has been updated to allow moving the XonoticPortable directory. Since Xonotic is so large, I didn't want to go through the upload process again for something so small, so I just made available the new launcher .ini file.

For those who don't know what to do with it, simply put it in the \XonoticPortable\App\AppInfo\Launcher directory (allow overwriting the previous file).

Ooh.

This one is huge, so I'll try to get it up tonight. If not, it should be ready tomorrow.

Updated.

They've added multiple language support in this release; however, upon first launch the game itself prompts the user for the preferred language you'd. Anyone have the opinion that I should attempt to implement language switching through the platform anyway?

Overrideable

IMHO, if you're able to override their prompt, you should, as that's what users are (slowly) coming to expect of apps launched from the platform - that the language chosen at the platform level will be respected.

*Downloading*

I agree with Gord. Override it by default and leave an option in the ini to use Xonotic's language switching. Everybody's happy.

Thanks for the quick update Smile

Current issues.

I realize there has been an update, but I've run into issues trying to update (some I may require speaking with a developer on their end).

One issue is that when I try to set fs_homebase (i.e. the data directory) via command line, Xonotic doesn't function correctly.

The second biggest issue is how to handle language switching. I can't seem to figure out where it stores the language, but even if I did I'm not sure I should implement this feature due to it being tied to the profile (thus, I would require a default profile for first-run to enable language switching on first-run).

Launcher only?

I already downloaded Xonotic. Can you upload the launcher only?

Thanks grunt.

I second this. I have already

I second this. I have already tried using the 0.6.1 launcher for the 0.7.0 version and it seems to run fine. However, I am not sure if I am allowed to give a link to an upload of a launcher-only archive.

Edit: I made a PAF installer of the launcher. Link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/8he4j9oxhzvdmlu/XonoticPortable_Launcher_English.paf.exe
