    Any plans on updating from Winforms to WPF?

      Hey there!

      I haven't looked into WPF, but if I do swap from Winforms it'll probably be to either GTK+ or Qt in order to keep UI code similar between Unix and Windows. I'll take a look at WPF, though

          It should - if you pull the source from Github (linux branch) it'll work for any game that has the executable in the root folder.

              Very simple - it's just like any other C# program. Clone or download the repository, open it in your IDE of choice and hit compile. VS Community is a good choice, if you haven't got one yet.

                Quick update about Unix/OSX progress!

                I'm happy to announce that the linux branch is getting real close to release, and with it comes a bunch of great changes to the launcher. The Windows backend has been completely restructured into a friendly alliance with the Unix backend. Essentially, all of the functionality has been moved into platform-independent handlers, thus delegating nothing but UI work to the platform-specific code. The end product is a more stable launcher and much cleaner code

                Launchpad now supports multiple platforms on the same server - distribute one launcher to your Windows, Linux and Mac customers, and they'll all get the correct build from your server (provided it's set up correctly, of course!). Now, this has brought on some pretty sweeping changes to the way the FTP folder structure is set up, which you as a game developer will need to change (case changes, more folders, less folders, you name it. Be prepare to recreate the entire structure. Sorry about that!). I'll be setting up an example server with readonly access where you can see exactly how things are supposed to look - it'll be providing a Linux and a Win64 build of the FPS template.

                I've also created a quick-setup script which will install vsftpd, create or modify an existing user and create all the neccesary folders for Launchpad. It's available here.

                Additionally, Launchpad should now be nicer to non-UE4 games, and will download and launch games with their main executable in the root folder as well.

                I can't give you an ETA for the release, unfortunately, as I still have tons of bugs to chase down and many more stability issues that I need to resolve. I hope to release sometime next month, though If you feel like helping out or checking out the still-unstable build, you can always clone or fork the linux branch ^.=.^

                  Woot! The Linux update has arrived! Launchpad is now fully cross-platform, is localized to 10 languages and runs ever so much more smoothly than before.

                  The main post has been updated with new information, and the old and horrid guide has been replaced with new documentation on GitHub. Check it out!

                    Awesome Stuff my friend! This has been pretty handy for passing working builds to my buddies for small play tests instead of relying on Dropbox or others
                    Current Project - *shush shush* Ehh.. When its ready?

                        Hi. Very nice share. However when trying to launch launchpad.exe I recive this error: Click image for larger version

Name:	error.jpg

                        Could these be caused by the FTP not allowing annonymous access? I am unsure how to test this. Thanks in advance!

                        Edit: seem to get error with or without config file

                          Hey there! Have you installed the GTK# libs? They're required for the application to work. Additionally, you need the .NET 4.5 runtime.

                          You can download GTK# here:http://www.mono-project.com/download/#download-win

                            I'll take a look as soon as I have time! I dont think I have GTK# libs, should have .net 4.5 runtime tho.
                            Btw. is there a way to have it download files from a http adress on the server? I am renting host space and only have one admin account for ftp access that I know of.
                            Cheers!

                              The launcher doesn't do HTTP at the moment - you should be able to use it anyway and just allow anonymous downloading of files

                                Thanks a million Jargon. I'm going to incorporate your system into our project for playtest builds. A couple of the testers said having an automatic updater would be useful to them. I'm glad we don't have to reinvent the wheel!
