Many of the mods shown installed on my launcher isn`t available on my in-game mod manager, is it because they were outdated for the current experimental version?

I believe there is a link on the mod tab that allows you to leave your mod location. I guess it is all up to Rremy to upload the mod.

My brother attempted to install the files to his desktop. When it did, it randomly deleted various files and shortcuts on his desktop for no reason. Upon my further investigation, all the files have been moved to an unknown location.

Any idea what caused this, or how to get the files back?

Also, quite a while ago i downloaded the latest launcher version, which permanently broke my launcher. I forget what the error said, since i deleted it, and am re-installing it now.
I was gonna put a smart-guy quote here but i couldn't think of one so here's a stick dude:

I can't seem to find my very old 0.A saves, I look at the 'previous version' file and it doesn't show my older saves or pictures.

This only recently happened after I re-downloaded and updated it yesterday. I'm going to be real irritated if I just lost my saves from 2014.

I can't explain what happened in words, but i'll put it up as pictures.

Do you know where the unknown location was located?

Hi, just wondering if there are any side effects of launching the game straight from the exe rather than through the launcher.

How do I get the launcher to stop replacing my version of PK's Rebalancing that I got from Github every time I update my game?

There is no easy way of doing this. The launcher assume that the mods provided by the base game are always better version than what was installed previously which might not be true for some mods like PK's.

I might have to add some way of preserving a mod. We previously had some talks about mod versioning. Maybe we could use that and compare versions too. It is a work in progress.

I'd say pisskop should change identifier of the mod.

Bug that had a long while ago, not sure if it got fixed yet, but it's kinda hard for me to replicate.
Basically, if your ISP's internet isn't functional (not payed for the month, etc) all web browsing attempts lead to a walled garden.
Not an issue, normally, but this can cause issues for offline play, as the launcher does not seem to have proper error handling for when it inadvertently tries to read the walled garden page that the ISP feeds it.
Workaround is to disconnect the computer itself from the network in question before running the launcher.
Best way to solve it, launcher wise, would probably to have an "offline mode" on the launcher, to prevent it from accessing the internet when not needed, as well as providing error handling for when the urls it tries to load gives unexpected outputs.
