SWGEmu LaunchPad - November 2013


The SWGEmu team is proud to announce that we have a new SWGEmu installer/launcher. New SWGEMu Launchpad will be replacing our old LPE (LaunchPad Enhanced). You can download the new SWGEmu Launchpad here (http://launchpad2.net/setup.exe)and the new SWGEmu Launchpad install guide can be found here (http://www.swgemu.com/forums/showthread.php?t=109581).


This is still a Beta version of the SWGEmu Launchpad so any questions, concerns, bugs or other issues either with SWGEmu Launchpad or SWGEmu Launchpad install guide can be posted in this announcement thread.


Please note that one month after SWGEmu Launchpad release our support department will stop offering support to any and all issues regarding the LPE and LPE based clients. Announcement with more details will be posted at a later date.


We would like once again to thank you for your dedication and support.

Hey, Thank you for the info. But actually I am little bit confused now. Waht do I have to do now? Do I need to completly reinstall SWG (incl. original gamedata?) or is it possible just to quit playing, install the new SWGemu Launchpad and start playing again? Is it necessary to delete the old LPE files befor installing SWGemu launchpad or is it just ok leave the data for the moment, just without using? Thanks anyway.

All you need to do is follow the guide. I installed it last week. Did not do any thing with my SWGEmu installation and removed the LPE and it worked fine. Make sure to make a safety copy of your profile, so you do not lose any macros and settings you like if the folder get messed up under installation.

If the fast way do not work, just follow the guide and do an reinstall.

Im having issues I followed the instructions for the new launchpad and just cant get it as default so it will launch. I know this one is all me but is there a better way on giving a walkthrough on how to switch them out and change the new one to default? this is were im stuck at right at step 4 and just cant figure it out The first time the SWGEmu launchpad starts it will ask you to direct to your original SWG game client location. (Default location is in Program Files for x86 systems or in Program Files (x86) for x64 systems). Thank you as well for this great game coming back to life!

When you say you "can't get it as default" what do you mean by that? Are you out of space on your C drive, is it throwing an error, what's going on? You do not need to change install location, you just let the launcher pick the install path and hit "next".

I made a copy of my profiles folder and stuck it on my desktop before installing. I got a good install except my settings and macros were gone. I copied my old profile folder over the new one and it still doesn't get my macros back. What did I or am I do doing wrong please?

VE_Strange
11-21-2013, 05:33 PM
Just a note...

Make sure you read it all the way through just like you did when installing way back when. There is new stuff you need to do in order to get this working ;)

Deleted player folder an copied the new one in still no macros. The folder shows them there but in game noting. Read the whole thing 3 times before I even installed it. Oh well guess I'll just have better organized macros now.

Ummm... are you copying it in the correct folder. New lunchpad doesnt just install itself in a folder you direct it to, it creates a new SWGEmu folder when it isntalls itself. Check the folder you directed it to for an SWGEmu folder.

Soulfly
11-21-2013, 05:46 PM
Was I not supposed to install over the old one? That is what I did. Didn't see the sense in have two folders with the same stuff.

Fixed! Thanks and sorry!

That depends on if you have 32bit XP (x86) or 64bit XP(x64). I'd hazard a guess that you probably need the x86 (32bit) version. Yes it does matter, since the x64 one won't install on an x86 system.

Old LPE had many issues and did not work properly for a number of people. New launchpad is vastly superior. That said, you do not have to use it if you do not want to. Just keep in mind that old LPE will no longer be supported after 30 days.

This does not work if you are simply trying to download the files needed to run SWGemu. For those of us that need complete the install process of the emu, we are getting the "server Forbidden" error when attempting to download those emu files.

LPE not working... again - 11/21/13

Seems that host where LPE and patch files are stored has pulled a Houdini on us... Again. That is the reason why LPE isnt working and should not be used.
Those that have game client installed and working do not use LPE (ever again), just go straight to your SWGEmu folder, locate swgemu.exe and run the game like that. If you run LPE first there is a good chance you will mess up your game client.
Those that used LPE and it broke their game client, you can try downloading this: http://www.swgemu.com/swgemu/downloa...onfigFiles.rar and extracting everything except swgemu_login.cfg in to your C:\SWGEmu folder (replace the existing files). Or if that doesnt work you just have to wait.
Those that need to install or reinstall, you are out of luck, you have to wait for LPE host to fix what ever issue they have.

And most important, why are you still using LPE? You should only use it to install SWGEmu client and never again. Always use swgemu.exe... always.

This change kinda freaked me out!

I just set up SWGEMU yesterday and at one point the LPE stopped working. Alright, no biggie, issues expected with this sort of thing, so I just ran the game client manually and played to my little heart's content.

Today I decided to run the repair on the LPE, see if that fixed things - well (as you all may well know) it deleted the SWGEMU executables, and wouldn't download new stuff! Crap!

So I rebooted my computer (#1 Windows fix ever ;), still didn't work. I opened up my browser and the launcher instructions are totally different! Freakin-a! So it was pretty obvious what happened, and I confirmed it when I found this thread. I'm setting up the new launcher now even though I know the old is fixable and all should be well.

Still, freakin-a!

Ellyssia
11-21-2013, 08:12 PM
Actually, the old ISN'T fixable. It's dead and probably going to remain that way, and going to be end-of-lifed in about a month anyway.

For the people telling us that we should have left it as it is, please look at the bigger picture. Our LPE did not work properly. Some even had to use ANHs LPE to be able to play this game. A new launchpad was needed. This is the first day with the new, untested (on a larger scale) program. It needed to be done. Some instability where expected and we are sorry that some have issues, but they will be dealt with. This will be better for SWGEmu in the long run, that is why we do this.

Its better to do this now, than when we have released our permanent server.

You need to link the launcher to your swgemu installation directory, usually C:/SWGEmu.

No joy here. I've tried everything that everyone has suggested. Do you have a fix for this? Do you know what the error means? This is very frustrating.

Switching characters same things as i described before. I am not angry at all you guys are doing a fantastic job keeping us happy for nothing, just for the love of the fans and the game it self but is a bit frustrating when things don't work like they should be.

The thing you describe has nothing to do with our Launcher or our server, sound like its either your internet connection or a hardware issue.

Working fine now thanks Vlada. One thing though because I uninstalled the old LPE before installing the new launcher. I had no user.cfg, so I had to set up all my settings and shortcuts for specials again. But no problem it just took me 5 mins.

Oh those are not in user.cfg and they are not linked to LPE, they are in the Profiles folder which should be located in your old SWGEmu client folder.

Question please, installed everything today, uninstalled LPE launcher first when I read the boards this morning to find out what was wrong with the launcher, any case uninstalled the old, in with the new, I to got them errors mentions in the other posts, I was still able to get in game tho through out the day, the errors are all gone, thank you, Oh the question,

is it normal for the install to have a folder within a folder? namely this, C:/Program Files/SWGEmu/SWGEmu/ an inside there the new SWGEmu Launchpad

Thank you

also make sure u back up the profession calc ...
for Win Vista and later it is located at "C:\Users\[user]\AppData\Roaming\LPECommon\LPE" where [user] is your username
copy KSWGProfCalc.dat and KSWGProfCalcEditor.exe and any saved templates to another folder BEFORE you uninstall LPE

... it MIGHT be there after uninstall but idk

Hopefully the calc MIGHT be in a future update of the SWGemu launcher since everything is on the Main tab right now and there are space for more tabs

When you say you "can't get it as default" what do you mean by that? Are you out of space on your C drive, is it throwing an error, what's going on? You do not need to change install location, you just let the launcher pick the install path and hit "next".

Here is what I had to do. I had to go to the new launch pad and on it click settings then go and find the old launch pad from there and tell the new launch pad to load from there I guess. I just clicked stuff until it worked I think. Anyways very confusing but all is good now thanks for the replies.

Yeah, everything is smaller. Font. Everything. It looks to be a resolution issue, but I've tried every single resolution setting to no avail.

Perhaps you were not using your native res before.

So, whoever with issues while setting options and anything that would involve writting into your hard disk:

A) Make sure that you have enough disk for this.
B) Make sure that you're running LaunchPad under administrator.
C) If the problem comes from windows 8 set the launchpad to work as it was Windows 7.
D) Update your Launchpad.
E) Clean your ingame options config with the LaunchPad.

If the problem persinst, unsinstall Launchpad, install again and re-do all the process.

Yeah, changing the game options doesn't do anything for the resolution. Pretty sure I was running in native beforehand. I guess I'll be reinstalling the launchpad this evening. :(

Gonna put me to work today I see! No worries i'll take a look and see what i can figure out. Wow, now my cursor is wigging out to.. hmmm. Must be a graphics driver issue. Somehow I think the new launchpad set-up crapped my game installation and my graphics driver as well as directx drivers. So who do i kick for this one! lol No big deal I will fix it and let you all know what's up so in case others get the same deal I am getting, they will know how to fix it.

Any tips on this would be great.

Just a bit.), and so far ... nodda. Everything has been working great up until I installed the new launchpad. This keeps popping up now, even though I have checked and re-checked all permissions and security settings.

Direct3d error usually means that you need to change your game screen resolution.

Voskko
11-24-2013, 09:50 PM
lol .. sorry I forget some don't quite understand some of that. For some reason something in my Windows 7 64 Bit set-up for security and permissions is not allowing launchpad FULL access and privileges that it requires in order to start swg. I think it has something to do with Microsoft Security Essentials though. I found an error log that deals with Security Essentials that is similar to an error and issue others have had. Looking more into it though. As for the the Direct 3d issue, still can't quite get that fixed, but i'm getting closer.

Voskko
11-24-2013, 10:14 PM
Ok, issue fixed. SWG, Launchpad, Video Drivers, and Directx are fine, not an issue with those. It was a glitch with file permissions and Microsoft Security Essentials. All I ended up having to do was go into my advanced file permissions and change setting for SWG executable and then Microsoft Security Essentials "allowed" it to load. The "glitch" in Security Essentials was not only stopping SWG, but it was stopping Directx as well. All good now, thank you for your response though Vlada.

Always, always add SWGEmu launcher and swgemu.exe to any firewall and anti-virus exception list.

I had no issues with installing the new Launch Pad, except i couldn't get it to find my profiles folder with copy and pasting. Solution was to close all instances, open launch pad, delete profiles from the launcher, close launch pad. Copy backed up Profiles folder into the new Launch folder. Restart launchpad and boom, there they are.

Nice launchpad btw.

Yes but does it alter or download additional tre files or does it only affect how the game launches, in other words will I still be able to connect to my own old server (assembla image)? I was told once that the .tre files or main executable are not touched and that they are SOE:s original ones. Has that changed?

No winetricks windows files added yet.

The internet connection is, not the issue :p.


If the developer wishes to contact me on IRC. There is a good chance i can obtain any debug data needed to resolve the issue.

Which problem? May want to specify since this thread is quite old and people ran into quite a few errors. You can find Settings tab in the very left top corner of the launchpad. If you are struggling with installation it may be easier for you to just contact our Live Support (link in my sig) so they can walk you through.
