(Updated to 1.2 for some new features)
http://www.dracsoft.com/tech/2009/armalaunch-1-1/

ArmALaunch is a program designed to allow for the easy launch of ArmA Combat Ops with various mods and command line options. It can save multiple 'favorites' of your mod configurations so you won't need tons of desktop icons all dedicated to ArmA.

To start, just run the program, and click 'Locate ARMA.EXE'. Once you've done that just activate some mods and save them as favorites, and click the launch ArmA button.

Enjoy, please email me any comments/bugs/suggestions.

Btw I'm aware that there may be other mod launchers out there, but I couldn't find any that felt simple enough yet did what I wanted. More options is always a good thing right? ;)

Hey, I've been looking for something like this...a launcher that lets you create multiple profiles and lets you determine the mod order! I just d/l'ed but I'm assuming that that is what your launcher does. This will help me keep ECS, ACE, GL3, FFN all separate and let me easily test out different sound mods.

Is this launcher not hosted here at Armaholic?

I hope you like it.

I have just updated the launcher to version 1.1, with support for running beta versions of arma. No other changes were made.

Armaholic has my permission to host this file if they wish. However my site will always have the bleeding-edge version.

After I've got it up running and figured out, I'll let you know what I think of it. Thanks!

UPDATE: This thing rocks! Now I can set up different profiles (or favorites as you call them) with different mod lists. Makes mod testing so much easier. And the control of the mod order is a big plus too for mods that want a certain order. Great work!

Just a quick note to say that ArmALaunch should be able to run ArmA 2 without any issues. Just use it the same as if you were playing arma. Select ArmA2.exe and you're good to go.

Thanks for informing, here is our mirror:


ArmaLaunch v1.1

As suggestions, maybe you can add some predefined extra commandline options. I mean like run windowed, no splash, ... so people can easily tick those they want.

Really nice work!

A great addition would be some tickboxes for:
-window
-nosplash
-noPause
etc.

If that was available this great app would sweep the floor with any other launcher I've seen.

I am announcing the release of 1.2, now with a command-line option 'quick' menu, and auto-exit after launch.

Enjoy all, link is updated on my homepage.

Probably never =) I do not believe in skinned applications. I may change the color scheme, but don't expect any bitmap skins
