・ How to install

  1. Use the installer. Start either gw2rpc.exe or launch_gw2_with_rpc.exe.


  1. Extract and run the gw2rpc.exe. It will start in your system tray. It needs to be running in background for Rich Presence to work.

In the config.ini in the program's directory, you can input your API key so that your status can display region (EU/NA) and your current guild tag.

To make starting Rich Presence easier, there is an .exe called launch_gw2_with_rpc.exe included in the download. This script launches both GW2 and the RPC addon. For it to work, it needs to be present in GW2FOLDER\addons\gw2rpc . You may then replace your normal GW2 shortcut with it for ease of launching.

You can also put a shortcut to gw2rpc.exe into your autorun so that it runs automatically on Windows boot.

・ How to update

  1. Run the new installer again.


  1. If a new version is released, simply replace the updated files. To get the newest configuration file, you might also delete the old one and let it be recreated on the first start of gw2rpc.exe for you.

・Configuration file

See below for the example configuration file

APIkey =                        ; ABCDE-FFFF-12345-....
