CDDA Game Launcher (Automatic updates and more!)


Okay, not sure what’s going on then, as I’ve never tried running the game off of a flash-drive.

Hope you get it sorted though… :wink:


Running off the drive saves me a lot of time copying files, I’m on different PC’s all the time. I bet it’s a Windows 10 thing. My flash drive is outdated lol


Haha yeah, I’ve ran into a couple of bizarre things with different indie games that I play through Steam, since I started using Windows 10 a few months back… :slight_smile:


I have to unplug and plug back in my wireless adapter at random times throughout the day. Sometimes for extended period of time it refuses to work, unless I unplug it, reset the pc, and plug it back in. Occasionally, all the usb ports aren’t. Until they are. Windows 10, everyone, welcome to the future.

That’s just my home system though. I have this problem everywhere, though I’m pretty sure everywhere IS using windows 10…I guess I need a new usb drive to test, fucking Microsoft wins again. I just did an update, had the same problem. It’s becoming less nervewracking to move the partially moved copy out of previous_version back to main directory, after all, the launcher has never actually deleted anything. It can’t, it seems. It just moves stuff around and throws an error half the time it tries to delete a directory…There’s a clue there, but I’m too uneducated to figure it out.


Oh, trust me, the launcher CAN and DOES delete stuff, which is why I keep a backup of certain things close by! :slight_smile:

Stuff like the options file, a copy of any extra, non-launcher available mods that I am using, tilesets, character templates, and the aforementioned saved game files. The templates seem to be a favourite of the launcher to randomly disappear…


Huh…I’d rather have my problem than yours :stuck_out_tongue:


Love the launcher.
So helpful for safe and easy updates to cataclysm.

I wonder if there is any chance for an android version in the future?
There’s an issue with the android builds right now (control bug) but later on it would be a great supplement for when i’m away from the PC.


I’m getting the little Caution Exclamation Point to the right of the saves line on the laucher’s main page. It says I might want to check “do not move or copy save files” because mine is getting large. Is this a good idea or should I just keep it as is, unchecked? I do occasionally make backups by copying my entire CDDA folder to another location on my PC, but not sure if that makes a difference. Thanks for any help.


I’ve used that option since the beginning and haven’t lost a world yet. It just leaves the save folder in place when updating. You already know you won’t get an automatic backup that way, so you’re all set.

P.s. Can we get the same option for soundpacks?


Sad because I can’t run the launcher with the newer wine stuff. Just get this instead.

Anyone know how to resolve this?


have downloaded this few days ago, when i click on the launcher it just straight crash…


Oh, maybe its the launcher itself not the porting that is broken then. Good to know.


Launcher’s working fine for me. Windows 10 64bit OS.


Windows XP is not supported right now.


Ah which is what all the virtual machines and the like usually run.


im on Win7 by the way…


wise man Ricky Van. Wish I could help you more but…
Does it at least work without the launcher?


This thing is just godlike


it works perfect without launcher, but i believe this launcher can provide me with some efficiency and comfort for updating and checking what’s new in the updates.if it works.

oh well, stick to the old manual then :smile:


Launcher is REALLY nice. I miss it. But good opertunity to continnue practice on Linux methods
