Knyazev : TDU2 Universal Launcher [v3.6]

Recommended Posts

It's bad? I don't think so.

 

UAC it's bad for me. UAC turned off at me now - it's good)

 

What the security threats could be with this launcher? oO

An application should never ask to disable UAC. I'm sure your app is safe, but turning off the whole security system - for all apps - is rather insecure.

 

Remember that non all people are safe browsing on the internet and don't care about security. At least the UAC prevents software from harming their computers.

 

As an example TDUMT1 asks for administrator privileges when starting. That's just a meta to declare in your app config :)

Oh, I forgot added the app.manifest to the UL project. :\

 

Now will be:

<requestedExecutionLevel  level="requireAdministrator" uiAccess="false" />

requires admin access.

 

Thank you for your comment ;-)

+ rep.

 

Soon will be released new version on Universal Launcher, with:

1. this fix with security issue.

2. support steam-version of TDU2.

Agree. :)

 

Specially if nicely programmed by EDEN like:

 

in the memory the account, email, password, serial key, is a simple, plain text. :D

yes ive read the instructions and everything all i want to do it make TDU2 use the un-binned files that ive modded, cos i made a seperate thread asking for help with this question, and Baddtraxx said i needed the universal launcher.

 

This is the problem im getting, i probablly seem like a complete idiot to you but i just cant work out how to fix this

 

Ive got to the point where ive installed mods and stuff but i cant figure out how to get them to work. heres what ive done so far.

 

1. Ive unpacked TDU with the QuickBMS thing

 

2. ive downloaded a BNK file from TDUCentral

 

3. I replace the old BNK file with the one i downloaded

 

4. How do i now get the game to use the modded files, because at the moment it jut tries to re-download the standard files instead of using the Bnk folder that the QuickBMS unpack created. Do i need to repack the files into the .big and .map files that the normal TDU2 uses???
