Configure launcher settings

The launcher settings cover the general logic and interface of the launcher, and are grouped as follows:

To configure the launcher settings:

  1. Open your project in Publisher Account.
  2. Click Launcher in the side menu.
  3. Find the launcher on the dashboard, and click Edit launcher.
  4. Go to the Launcher settings section.
  5. Change the settings.
  6. Click Save changes.

General settings

The following settings tabs are available:

Name & OS

The Name & OS section allows you to configure the following:

  • Launcher name — the launcher name in Publisher Account.
    If you change it, generate a launcher build — the build will contain a new name.
  • Operating systems — the operating system(s) that the launcher supports.
    It is not possible to disable support for operating systems that are already supported (the ones that have the On status). If you enable additional operating systems, generate a launcher build to get the links to launchers for them.

Languages

In the Languages section, you can select the languages that the launcher interface supports.
English is the default language and cannot be removed.
Selected languages that will be available when completing the Game information and Сontent sections.

Analytics

In the Analytics section, you can specify the Google Analytics Tracking ID value to enable sending events generated by the launcher to Google Analytics.
This is an additional option for collecting statistics because all event statistics are always available on the Analytics tab of the project in Publisher Account.

User login

The User login section allows you to specify a Login project that the launcher will use in its Login widget. This widget provides one-click authentication while keeping user data safe and under your ownership.

  1. Select the Login project.
  2. Enable or disable OAuth 2.0 for the selected Login project. If enabled, users do not need to log in every 24 hours.
  3. If OAuth 2.0 is enabled, select an OAuth 2.0 client that the Login project will use. If the Login project does not have any clients, a new client is created in the Login project.
  4. Click Save changes.
