At first I really did not like the patcher, as with all things that change in life many times our knee-jerk reaction is "I hate it change it back". One year later though, I can say that the patcher was a good addition and it gives everything a more modern feel
Thank you everyone who have created this work. It makes life so much easier for the non technical gamer. This community has taken me from a single ok Necro always LFG to a never need help team play anytime I want.
Its addictive and fun to learn.
Thanks again and thanks in advance for all the new that will come in time.
I had an issue installing it but it turned out it was all my fault.lol. I had a web browser set as my default then had restricted everything to not be able to use it to eliminate the windows opening after I closed out of EQ with my ftp accounts. Once I switched to Firefox I realized what I had done and made Firefox my default and it immediately worked like a charm.
I've been a redguides user for a while. I, as well as a lot of others, wanted an easy to use way to download the updates for MQ2 and have the ability to update some macros/plugins without having to navigate to each of their individual resources. The redguide launcher achieves that. It has the added benefit of not requiring I input my login and password and instead uses the browser to log me in.
Setup is pretty straight forward, just tell the launcher where you want it installed or where it is already installed at, and then you can update it every time without changing any settings. This has the added bonus of being able to update Test, Live, or EMU from the same launcher.
If I need a plugin, after I update I simply click on the plugins button on the left side. Then a list of plugins populate is I've purchased them or watched them. Simply hit download/update next to the one I want and it does it for me.
If I need a macro, I can click on the macro button on the left and repeat the same steps as I did for the plugin.
If anyone needs help with setup, asking someone for assistance is pretty easy to accomplish by going to the discussion thread and asking for assistance. New things can be intimidating. But I promise once you get this setup that you'll be able to use it every time without any problems.
