Developer Diary Updates to the Game Launcher

Not open for further replies.
We’re excited to announce the release of our refreshed game launcher, which will streamline your journey into the Restoration III Galaxy. The launcher should automatically update from the previous version. If you are running an older version of the launcher without the automatic update support, you will need to manually re-install here as you will be unable to log in to the game without the new launcher.

Feature Improvement Highlights:
  • Logging in to the game will now be handled through the launcher instead of in-game, and you'll be able to use a "remember me" feature to only need to provide your credentials once every 30 days. Please note you will no longer be able to log into the game directly by running the SwgClient executable file.
  • You can now switch between connecting to the Live Server and the Test Center from the launcher's user interface instead of making manual changes.
  • The launcher login process supports two-factor authentication if you have enabled it on your account, so two-factor authentication is now supported across all services you can authenticate with to help keep your account secure.
  • Players may now perform a Full Scan to verify the integrity of their installation.
  • News, server status, donation progress, and other helpful links are now displayed on the launcher.
We hope you enjoy improvements and as always welcome your feedback on PlayerVoice.

May The Force Be With You,
The SWG Restoration III Development Team
