    Update V5.309:

    Hey everyone, its me, Lachee! As my internet has just refreshed, I was able to upload a update for the Starbound Launcher. IT is current V5.309 and your current launcher should automaticly prompt you to update.

    Bug Fixes and Changes:

    • Hopefull fixed the whole "Virus" thing. Thanks to Mitch528 for the alternative to User32.dll injection ;)
    • Pointless behind the scene methods added.... because I thought I might need them one day.
    • Automatic suggestion to move to replace default startbound launcher
    • Automatic starbound launcher replacement. On first launch it will ask if you would like to override default launcher, saying yes will cause program to backup previous launcher, and then override a copy of itself over the launcher.
    Automatic Installs:

    This version will now ask if you would like it to automatic install itself on first build, but there are some gotchas to be careful with and take some note.

    The first Gotcha is fairly obvious and should be done anyways: Make a backup of the default launcher!
    While the program does this automatic, it cannot check if its backing up the original launcher or a older version of the ilovebacons launcher. Because of this, you should make a backup of the original one as I will not be supplying a backup myself if people want to switch back to the old launcher.

    The second Gotcha is that it might not actually prompt your for the first time. This is because it stores its version in the settings to detect for new versions. If this happens, simply delete the settings at C:\Users\{USERNAME}\AppData\Local\StarboundLauncher.config .


    Default Launcher Tutorial:


    While the program does this automatic now, I feel that this tutorial should still be around so you can backup the default launcher, because I am not supplying replacements if something goes wrong.

    1. Download the launcher, as linked here
    2. Browse to your starbound location. By default it should be somewhere along the lines of
      Code:
      C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Starbound\
    3. Open up the location to the current default launcher. It should be in a folder \win32\launcher
    4. Rename launcher.exe to launcher-old.exe
    5. Move the downloaded launcher into the same directory as launcher-old.exe
    6. Rename the new launcher from StarboundLauncher.exe to launcher.exe
    7. Run Starbound from steam normally!
    Its that simple! Here is what it should look like afterwards:

    First step: Uninstall Avast
    Second: Install superior program, such as AVG

    Or install a vastly more superior program such as Security Essentials :p

    Sorry Pietro1, but I have done what I can to avoid the virus protectors. I do give you my word as a programmer that its 100% safe.

    Update V6.392:

    Another update! Twice in the same month! What is this!

    Well, I am here to announce that the launcher has now been released free from the beta tag in time for the ILoveBacons birthday extravaganza! This version boasts only one new feature and some slight code changes, but this new feature is a must have!

    This feature will allow the background image to sync with the server, so we can constantly update with new and interesting images from the server without you having to download a new launcher every time! All your images are cached, so you only download them once and you are able to disable this feature if you have bad internet. In future updates I will be investing my time in a fade-slideshow, so it can slowly go through all the past and present images ;)

    Enjoy the early birthday gifts!


    Bug Fixes and Changes:

    • More behind the scenes stuff
    • Left behind the beta status
    • Added images that are fetched from the ilovebacons server
    • decided to explain the version number. The 6 represents the release version, and the 392 represents the build (how many times I have made changes and recompiled it).

    The design feels a little clunky/unpolished
