A quick release with support for wxWidgets 2.8, wxWidgets 2.8 STL, and wxWidgets 3.0.

.dmg files are compressed apps for OS X. Extract and run.
.exe is a Windows Installer

Linux users can build from the source archives. Some Linux distributions have wxLauncher in there package managers.

Reuploaded windows installers because they were not compiled with Speech enabled.

wxLauncher 0.9.4 beta has been released. You can download it from at the end of this post.

(0.9.2 and 0.9.3 were Limited Collector's Editions Diaspora R1 launcher versions.) If you have Diaspora (R1 Patch 4 and below), download the .zip of updated launcher resources from the Downloads section in the release post.

One important change is that FRED launching can now be toggled by pressing F3. Why F3? Because it's already accepted as a hidden "cheat code" for modders, thanks to the F3 Lab in FSO. Now F3 will access modding features in both FSO and wxL.

Summary of changes since 0.9.1

Partial support for extended mod.ini format! (details here

  • Mod-customizable features: (both TCs and mods)
    • Images for both the mod list and the mod info dialog
    • Minimum resolution
    • Recommended lighting (overriding the "Baseline recommended" preset)
  • Skin system: (TCs only)
    • Window title and icon
    • Welcome page's banner and text below banner
    • Default mod list/mod info dialog images for mods that don't include images
    • Status bar icons and similar big icons (warning, info, etc.)
    • News source (currently HLP or Diaspora)

Mods page:

  • Mod list is now sorted alphabetically
  • Default image provided for mods that don't include an image of their own

Basic Settings page:

  • "Enable EFX" checkbox now appears when the selected playback device supports EFX :nervous:
  • Speech voices are now listed in the correct order
  • Connection settings read from profile are now displayed correctly

Advanced Settings page:

  • "All features on" flag set has been restored

Other changes:

  • New splash image (special thanks to mjn.mixael for making this)
  • FRED launching can now be toggled with F3
  • Faster startup thanks to more efficient mod.ini search
  • Assorted bug fixes and text revisions

Linux only:

  • RESOURCES_PATH can now be user-specified (special thanks to Firartix for identifying and fixing this)
  • cmdline_fso.cfg is now written to ~/.fs2_open/data/ instead of FS2/TC folder

The wxLauncher Team would like to thank Axem, mjn.mixael, niffiwan, swashmebuckle, and Yarn for helping test 0.9.4.

I (Iss Mneur), personally would also like to thank jg18 for his hard work on getting this release out. I know it would not have happened without him.
