On a more serious note you really need the launcher to work in a way where it doesn't mess with your standard d2 files before you make it mandatory. One can only have so many d2 installs at a time.

sorry, I was really busy the last 1-2 weeks, didn't see the post.

you don't need 2 d2 folders and launchers. you only need 1. you run the game trough the launcher, and the play button will still be there, so you click it again and the launcher will start a 2nd d2 instance.

rofl nice find

you can make the launcher use a custom d2 folder if you point it to the right folder in the settings, so you can have multiple instances of d2 up (it changes server reg though). but yeah, next version will remove median after uninstalling.

Haha :lol: That was way before I found bunch of issues, bugs and undocumented "features" of it. Also with v2.3 being WIP since like 50 years, we can pretty much say there will not be any release anymore, meaning these issues and bugs will never get fixed.
