Although we do recommend that anyone who is new and on a modern OS uses it, since it makes installation and set up very easy.
Hey suchbalance, I am using the launcher and it works great for me. I thought I read somewhere that the launcher installs new patches automatically. Will this be true for the upcoming patch? Or will I need to manually download it and place it in the appropriate directory? I don't have a ton of computer knowledge which is why the launcher worked well for me.
Thanks for anyone's help, I appreciate it.
