Windows updates can cause this. Sometimes restarting the computer fixes it.

MXL Launcher v0.3.0 has been released!

Your old Launcher should notify you of the update and offer to install it, but you can also manually download the Launcher from here:
https://get.median-xl.com/launcher



This version focused mostly on fixing bugs and improving performance.

Other major changes include:
  • Now works on non-English Windows.
  • Restores normal D2 battle.net gateways on uninstall.
  • Patching and unzipping no longer temporarily freeze the Launcher.
  • -nofixaspect option is supported in settings.json file (not added to the launcher settings menu yet)
  • Actual Median version is shown under the Play button.
NOTE: When transitioning from v0.2.8 to v0.3.0, it is recommended to uninstall the old version, and then manually download and install the new one. This is only for updating from v0.2.8 to higher versions, and won't be needed for future versions.

:lol:

Well, it's not REALLY needed, but some stuff won't work otherwise. Mostly 2 things:
- battle.net gateways won't be restored on uninstall
- some Launcher files will remain in the folder after uninstalling

But if you uninstall and reinstall the Launcher to update it, those will work.

Think it could be possible to integrate Plugy in the launcher on future releases ? That could stop the version X can't use plugy due to digital downloads

I've been trying, but for me plugy won't work even if I install 1.13c. I'll try again.
