Launcher won't hold the command line parameters turned OFF after every restart
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Every time i use the launcher i want to disable the command line parameters option because i have them already enabled through the UI (showscripterrors, nosplash, etc).
Even though i disable them (untick the box), every time i restart the launcher they are re-enabled automatically, while everything else holds the configuration previously set.
This is very annoying because sometimes i miss that and i find myself mid-session being forced to exit the game because the parameters i use in command line (usually for starting the game directly without having to go through the launcher when testing my mods) break the other mods i'm running.

this behavior is intended. Every time you pass command line parameters to the Launcher the field is activated.

I suspect that the root of the problem is that you have set command line parameters through Launch Options in Steam client and that the Steam client is using that setting for both the game and the Launcher.

Yes it's what i do (set parameters in the steam launch options), because i have to restart the game very often when working on my mods and going through the launcher is an unnecessary step in that case, i just use it to launch more than one mod at a time.

Would it be possible to keep it disabled if i untick it in the launcher?

Thanks for the suggestion. The behavior is intended, but we could add option checkbox to ignore the provided parameters. Added to the backlog.

Thank you for your time.

Oh gosh darn it, I've attached my logs in the wrong window. Sorry.

I forgive you :D

Closing the issue: the current behavior is intended, feature request for a check box that would allow user to change the behavior was added to our backlog.
Many thanks to all of you.
