Hey, it's been a month or so, but the TPK Launcher has gone though another evolution. Now we have lots and lots of games to choose from. Soon, perhaps in January, I will set up a 24 TB drive array so that I can add even more games. For now there are over 350 games to choose from. I have tried to optimize the installation as much as possible, such as compressing data, dynamic menu loading, etc. Enjoy!
Well how about that. A month later and I have added client file downloads to the TPK Launcher for more games than you can shake a stick at. Most are old, some are new, but the one thing they all have in common is that they are all great. I'm not going to list them here. You'll just have to download it and see for yourself!
I know it has been awhile. I'm sorry, I've been busy!! Anyways, development of TPK continues. I have updated the TPK Launcher utility to support Diablo II version 1.14d. I have also updated the tool to use the newer GOG versions of Diablo I and Warcraft II BNE. In order to play Warcraft II BNE on the official Battle.net server you will need to purchase your own version and get a CD-key. Otherwise, you can continue to play on the TPK Battle.net server without any problems.
I have also added support for several external World of Warcraft servers. These servers are in the Czech Republic and Poland. I've added them into the TPK Launcher utility so that you can easily connect to them. You will need to go to the website of each server to create an account. The TPK account credentials will not work. The link to the server is visible within the tool. These are well populated servers with each averaging several thousands of users at any given time.
Finally, for shits and grins, I added the original Warcraft Orcs & Humans.
TPK now has a Battlet.net server running PVPGN and the TPK Launcher has been updated to support it. Diablo, Diablo II, Warcraft II, Warcraft III, and Starcraft are all supported. Download the latest TPK Launcher and let it handle downloading and installing the game files and configuring it for you. No fuss, no muss. It's that easy.
The TPK Launcher has been updated to support the downloading of the client files for the following locales: enUS, enGB, esES, esMX, frFR, deDE, and ruRU.
