[IW5][T6][Launcher] Add a protocol handler.


  • Project Moderator

    Feature:
    Add a protocol handler.
    Description:
    Add a protocol handler to the launcher so websites / other tools can interact with the launcher.
    Motivation:
    This feature should be added to the client, so websites / other tools can interact with the launcher.
    Examples:

    • A connect button on a server management site.
    • A connect button in a post on the forum.
      As simpler ways for normal players to join a game.

    pluto://t6zm/connect/example.org:27015/password/n0passMe

    As a way to join someone (connects to the server or lobby the other player is connected).

    As soon as the launcher has support for this, I will add support for it in both games.
