Download and Run a File

We have finally broken through yet another feature for the DLC addon for GLCV2.

Download a File

You can now create buttons that allow direct downloading of specific files from the web.

You simply create a button and select ‘Download File’. You then specify the action parameters box the direct URL to this particular file.

Here is what it looks like in the editor:

Executing the File

Once the file has downloaded, it will be executed on the user’s computer. This is useful for downloading installers, patch executables or even zip files. If the file isn’t an executable, GLCV2 will attempt to open it with the program/software the filetype is registered for use with on the user’s computer.

You also have an additional option of closing the launcher upon completion of the download or not.

Here is the launcher feature in action…

This feature is still being developed and we will be adding some customization to the download dialog seen above.
