1. Changes from original:

  • Fixed few bugs existing in default SDK launcher

2. Compatible games

  • Team Fortress 2
  • Garry's mod
  • Counter-Strike: Source
  • Left 4 Dead 2
  • Insurgency
  • Portal 2
  • Half-Life 2
  • Black Mesa
  • *Left 4 Dead

*Games should work, but they were not tested by author of an application

3. Requirements

  • Windows Vista / 7 / 8 / 8.1 / 10
  • .NET Framework 4.5.2 (You probably have it installed already on your computer)
  • If you want to use that tool with csgo: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive SDK

4. Advanced settings

  • "Preload data on startup"
    Default: disabled
    Description: If enabled, CSL loads data (profile templates, community content for browser) at startup.
    Pros: Access to some deeper functions might be faster
    Cons: Slower startup
  • "Ignore game migration conflicts"
    Default: disabled
    When disabled, if migration conflict is found (for example you roll back to an older version and go back to the latest version) new dialog will appear, where you'll be able to select what saved games to keep.
    When enabled, CSDKL will ignore game migration conflicts

    I wonder if we could have 1-click integration with this on GameBanana, allowing people to automatically load prefabs, map files and models into the launcher in a single click? It would require your launcher to have a custom procotol handle, e.g sdklaunch://

    Do the tutorial buttons open into a list of categorized links, or just a playlist directly?
