OpenRCT2 Launcher


Recommended Posts

Gday All,

I know the launcher is an independent project, and not a part of the OpenRCT2 project. Does the person who created it look in here occasionally ?

It's just that there are times when the launcher just sits with the "Play" button greyed out and doing nothing else. I have no idea if this is it having trouble connecting to the update server or what.

It's not too frequent, but still occurs.

Does anybody else have this happen ?     Launcher Version: 0.0.7 x64

It usually sorts itself out in a few hours, but today it's been like this for most of the day.

It happens when there’s a new build published, but the build for your platform isn’t ready yet. Especially the windows builds are known to be slow. If you want to play, just close the launcher and launch the game directly (I think it’s located somewhere in documents/OpenRCT2/bin, but I can’t check right now).

Does mean we have to run 0.2.4 version? Because that's what happens when I launch it from the documents folder. And it would suck to try and load the new save file format because I noticed the last couple saved games of mine don't show up in the load window (on 0.2.4 version).

Generally, this problem goes away on its own. If it doesn’t, you can always download an installer build manually and use that. The Launcher is an unofficial project made by a contributor and is not required to run OpenRCT2.
