Take a look at the feature list below.

Built-in Updating and Patching
GLCV3 offers both a simple built-in updating system and an advanced file patching system.
Gamer edition comes complete with the ability to download an updater file (installer) when there is a trigger that an update is available.
Indie and Developer editions also have this feature, but they also have access to the AOPS2 system which is the advanced patching system. Meaning you can keep your game files up to date by only downloading the files that were changed.
Developer edition comes with many more options, special configurations and the ability to embed the patching system directly into your launcher window.
All editions come with a versioning system, allowing you to setup multiple ways of checking for version information.
The built-in updater allows you to simply check if there is a version update and to allow the user to download and install it.
AOPS2 Patching system
The AOPS2 Patching System allows you to issue game patches/updates on-the-fly and in real-time.
Launcher Patching System
With Indie and Developer editions, you can create your own custom update system using conditional logic and event actions.

Event actions and Conditional Logic
GLCV3 offers a built-in event action and conditional logic system.
This powerful system enables you to create a virtual unlimited amount of endless options and sets of triggers to make pretty much anything work the way you want it to work.
The whole system is broken down into two parts. The conditional logic part and the event action part.
Conditional logic is when an event is triggered either automatically or by the user.
Examples of conditional logic event happening would be
– On Button Click –
– An Update is Available –
– Video Ends –
Event actions are the actions executed following an event triggering.
Examples of event actions would be
– Launch Executable –
– Hide Objects –
– Minimize Launcher –
Event Action Examples
Custom Update System
An example of a custom update system which is triggered by the versioning system and the update downloaded on a custom page.
An example of checking if a user has a file installed and if not, downloading an installer.
An example of the user clicks the launch button, you run the game and minimize the launcher window.
You are free to use events where they are available and actions how you see fit.
Game Launcher Creator V3 brings a revolutionary feature right to your custom game launchers.
You can use Cloud Images or Cloud Videos inside your launcher, which means you can update the image/video on your webserver and it will instantly reflect the changes across all your users launchers.

Player Account Info
If you have the Dev edition and your script allows for query parameters, you can retrieve account information.
System and Custom Variables
GLCV3 has a very powerful internal variable system which allows you to specify local and remote variables anywhere in your launcher.
Display information such as Local and Remote Version numbers, usernames, system variable information such as paths, directories and much more!
Pretty much any values/strings used inside your launcher can be used in a dynamic text string by simply including the variable.
You can use variables such as version information by simply using %LOCALVERSION% and %REMOTEVERSION% in your text strings.
GLCV3’s super-fast runtime means all variables are parsed at the speed of light so no matter where you use them, they’re instantly displayed.
Variable Parsing and Sending
GLCV3 comes with a plethora of standard variables to use in the Developer edition such as system information, including directories and paths and usernames.
You can also specify your own custom variables from dynamic sources such as responses from a PHP query string to use throughout the launcher.
You can setup a text string on your custom patch page which displays the real-time patching status. You can write your own text and also include variables whereever you want to include them.
Your setup in the GLCV3 string object would look like this:
Patch Status: %STATUSAOPS% – %AOPSOVERALLPERCENT%
Which in the launcher, would look like this:
Status: Patching Files… – 52%
