    directly from the launcher. No need to deal with complicated files and folders.


Below are some screenshots of the IW4x Launcher.


IW4x Launcher, by default, looks for the "userraw" folder in it's immediate working directory. This means that if you drop it in your IW4x installation folder, it will work right out of the box. For those of you who prefer custom install locations (for whatever reason), IW4x Launcher will also give you the option to specify a custom game installation location. Once set the first time, your settings will be stored and recalled each time you use the launcher.


The Client Mods manager will only manage packaged mods. This means only .iwd files. Any mods you have that are in a folder structure should be packed in a .iwd file to be compatible with the launcher. The launcher also contains code for auto-updating. This means that patches and new features can be implemented without any addition work from the user.
