Launcher Beta Test 05/05/2020

Post#1 » Tue May 05, 2020 5:39 pm

Launcher Version has just been pushed out to testers.

Once signed up your launcher should ask to be updated! - Do it!

Changes include:
- Fixed errors with corrupt files when patching. (when you would have to resort to dowloading the myp fresh)
- Fixed exception when changing settings whilst game was running.
- x64 is now the default selection
- The settings has a "Repair" button which will allow a full file check of all files in MYPS and redownload broken or missing files.
- Improved the news: News will have styled text and urls and overall display more pleasantly.
- Fixed issue so you will no longer have to run Discord and other apps run as administrator to enable features such as push-to-talk


If you have any issues please post here.

New Launcher Version does not want to run WAR 64 only runs 32 versions . When I want to enable 64 versions the connect button remains gray and nothing happens even if i restart the client

I can't start RoR under linux/wine anymore, neither 32 bit nor 64 bit.
When i click <Start> without login info i get at least the command to fill in username/pw from server (or launcher).
When i click <Start> with login info nothing happens except throwing always these 2 lines to the output of winedebug.

0009:fixme:crypt:SystemFunction041 (0x495f884, 30, 0): stub [RtlDecryptMemory]
0009:fixme:crypt:SystemFunction040 (0x495f884, 30, 0): stub [RtlEncryptMemory]

I don't know if this is the problem but it's the only constant in all the debug lines.
I couldn't manage to extended debug the starting process, because the launcher crashed.

Hopefully this can help a bit. It would be a pity if others and me could not use linux anymore to play RoR.



Edit: Launcher log says this:
[20.05.06 17:23:49] I Patcher : Recieved manifest (21 entries)
[20.05.06 17:23:49] S Patcher : Download complete.
[20.05.06 17:23:49] E Start : Failed to get process ID

The fix for windows users still requires the launcher to be run as administrator (unfortunately) as there is still the following line in the manifest :
<requestedExecutionLevel level="requireAdministrator" uiAccess="false" />

But once ran, if not mistaken before launching war.exe/war64.exe it eventually looks for the process ID of Discord, to launch the game with the same invoker/level of authorization, enabling push to talk things without having discord launched with admin rights.

As under linux/Wine this is probably handled differently, it fails to get the process ID, and stops.

I have the very same E Start : Failed to get process ID error while trying to run the launcher under windows with <requestedExecutionLevel level="asInvoker" uiAccess="false" /> (either with an external manifest, or with a commandline tweak)

Note : could "run launcher as Admin" or "looking for discord app" be part of the settings options, to enable full portable execution, and not enforced by default ?
