Freespace Open & GoG Galaxy
Anybody know a way to launch Wxlauncher thru GoG Galaxy?Wxlauncher is installed in a separate folder inside the Freespace one.
Im guessing there is a command line that you can use,but I have no ideea how it should look.I just wanna play Freespace Open Port thru the Galaxy launcher so it records my time.
Any advice?Thank You.

You could probably mess with Galaxy's SQLite databases to achieve this... but I'd advise against it. It's more trouble than it's worth.

Whether or not this is possible, I'd recommend using Knossos instead of wxLauncher.  Knossos is a lot easier to use and it won't make a difference as to what you're trying to do here.

Re: Freespace Open & GoG Galaxy
Back in the XFire days i achieved this with a simply rename of the fs2open.exe into FS2.exe (with a backup of the original file of course)  :D

Because you need a launcher only to set up your inital settings more easily. After that it is stored in a file and is used in every subsequent start of the executable.

So you can use wxlauncher only to change your activated mod, but you do not need it otherwise.

Is one of my releases broken or not working? Please send a PM here, on Discord at Novachen#2334 or on Twitter @NovachenFS2, a public tweet or write a reply in my own release threads here on HLP, because these are the only threads i am still participating in.

Re: Freespace Open & GoG Galaxy
Renaming Fs2open to FS2 worked,can't believe I didn't think of it.I did the same thing to other games so they work with galaxy,but it didn't cross my mind here.
Thank you, I can finally play this in sweet HD.
