The 7D2D Mod Launcher - A Mod Launcher for 7 Days to Die

Recommended Posts

So why is it here 4.1?

 

[ATTACH=CONFIG]24875[/ATTACH]

 

My guess is that JaxTeller718 didn't want to change the name of the mod when he updated it to 4.2. The "name" of the mod in the Mod Launcher is used for the folder; changing this name would have forced everyone to re-install the mod completely.

When trying to run launcher:

It may have been a temporary disruption. I just loaded it up. Would you mind re-trying?

Whenever I try to download the mod launcher I get this error message:

Error Starting Application: System.ArgumentException: Illegal characters in path.

I have no idea what any of this means so if you know how to fix it the help would be much appreciated. Also, I know almost nothing about computers so please explain how to fix it as if you were talking to a child. Thank you in advance.

Sorry for the delay in answering.

 

It seems like one of the settings is bad in the game. Does the launcher start at all, or just errors out and stops you from continueing?

 

If it does continue to launch, you can go to File -> Clear -> Clear Steam Paths, and see if that helps.

Started working not long afterwards! Thanks! FYI: Couldn't do anything, except force close... Or maybe close caused launcher to close...

Give this a try:

 

To delete the ClickOnce file cache delete the contents of this folder based on the operating system.

 

Windows XP and Server 2003 - %userprofile%\Local Settings\Apps\2.0\*.*

Windows Vista and Server 2008 and later - %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Apps\2.0\*.*

 

Deleting these files will clear the information for all installed ClickOnce applications. They will re-install the next time their shortcut or URLs are used.

Sorry for the delay. This sounds like something is blocking the github link. Can you click on Disable SSL, and re-launch the mod launcher to see if it fixes it?

I did that, now the mod launcher won't even launch

 

I uninstalled and reinstalled and it still won't launch.

 

EDIT: After a few minutes of it appearing not to launch, it launched out of nowhere. No, it didn't fix it, it still shows the same thing.

Once loaded, would you mind clicking on the View menu, then Log files, and clicking on Upload Log file? It'll give you a pastebin.com link of the start up; might be able to see what's going on with it. Sounds like something is blocking the site.

It's my ISP blocking it. I connected to my hotspot instead on my phone and it loads fine now. Guess I am using my hotspot when installing mods. Thanks for the help.

Question is there any way my girlfriend, while having the mod installed on the launcher join my game and have the mod installed or how can I make this happen? So it's just us two in this mod online? Basically asking how do I start a co-op game with my gf and I. When using vanilla she can just join my game through steam. But when using the launcher it doesn't work. What's the work around? Is there an easier way than installing all the server files and all that?

I get this error when trying to launch the game from the mod launcher? How do I fix this? https://imgur.com/a/brEWiSk

 

This error is being generated by windows, saying that the file is locked, or in-use. Common reasons for that would be either the file was open for edit elsewhere, anti-virus was scanning it, or windows was doing something else with it.

 

If you have anti-virus or anti-spyware, I'd suggest adding an exclusion to the top level folder, like C:\7D2D in your case.

There's a two main ways:

 

1) In the game's Multiplayer screen, enter in your IP address and the port, to allow a direct connect.

2) Add the 7d2dmodlauncher.exe ( https://7d2dlauncher.blob.core.windows.net/installer/7D2DModLauncher.exe ) to Steam as a non-Steam game. Then launch the mod launcher from steam. Open your overlay (SHIFT-TAB) and try to join that way

I am sorry that this is the awkward solution for you. I've found a few ISPs that have been hostile to github links in the past, and there's not that many ways around it.

Seems like something is blocking the launcher from reading the list. Can you click on Disable SSL, and restart the mod launcher?

It's already set to disable, I have unticked and reticked it, no difference. Actually it will not allow me to untick it, just goes to (Not Responding).

OK, I unticked 'Disable SSL' waited for it to respond and it is now showing all the mods. Wierd. All good, sorry to bother you.
