Not Paradox Launcher

This app was designed to replace the Paradox Launcher recently added in Cities: Skylines. It might or might not work with other games from Paradox.

If you have other games from Paradox Interactive installed, make a backup for the file "launcherpath", located in "C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Paradox Interactive" before starting this launcher.

What's it for

The app was designed for Cities: Skylines (Steam) but it should work with all Paradox Interactive games that use their launcher (untested)
In here you will find the Windows version (compiled with Delphi 10.3). The Linux version source code is inside the linux-src folder. The Mac version source code is inside the mac-src folder.
Steam Overlay is working!

Features

  • Fast startup with low memory usage (unlike Paradox Launcher that has a Chromium browser embedded)
  • Automatically start the game instead of having to hit another play button
  • Automatically closes after starting the game freeing up used memory (unlike remaining active in the background)
  • No data collection, no ads, no advertisements, no constant communications with remote servers
  • Option to automatically load last save game
  • Option to force a specific window mode (windowed / borderless window / fullscreen)
  • Option to use Direct3D 9 instead of DirectX 11 (useful if you have problems)
  • Option to use Open GL instead of DirectX 11 (useful if you have problems)
  • Option to limit FPS
  • Option to disable game log files (increases load speed but errors can't be easily identified if they occur)
  • Option to disable Steam Workshop and/or mods
  • Option to specify any other launch options you might need

Installation

  • download the latest release from the Releases page
  • Extract the files to a folder of your choosing
  • Start the launcher.exe app once to set it up
  • Start the game from Steam as usual

Uninstall

  • delete the extracted files
  • delete the file launcherpath from "C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Paradox Interactive"
