WXLauncher Crashing Upon Hitting "Play"
Hello!

Whenever I attempt to play the game from WXLauncher, the launcher crashes before launching the game. I am able to run the game just fine with the game's executable. I have tried launching with and without mods, still the same result. The launcher crashes with the following attached wxWidgets Debug Alert:

Any suggestions?

wxLauncher 0.10 and FSOpen 3.8.0 don't play nice because of the SDL changes. You'll need to use wxLauncher 0.12 beta or stick to a 3.7 release of FSO. If that isn't the source of your problem I'm not sure what else it would be. That's the only problem I've ever encountered with wxLauncher.
