Main discussion

  1. Min ED Launcher with rfvgyhn the author
    2. Ben’s notes again – how to set it up…
      1. Copy MinEdLauncher.exe to your game folder
      2. Make a shortcut to “MinEdLauncher”
      3. In the “Target” add your arguments
        1. “F:\Program Files (x86)\Frontier\EDLaunch\MinEdLauncher.exe” 
        2. /frontier [Profile_Name] – this can be anything but it corresponds to a profile name saved to localAppData
        3. /edo – Play Odyssey (/edh or /edh4 are appropriate alternative arguments)
        4. /autorun – Just go right in to ED
        5. /autoquit – Quit the launcher
        6. /vr – Play in VR
        7. “F:\Program Files (x86)\Frontier\EDLaunch\MinEdLauncher.exe” /frontier [Profile_Name] /edo /autorun /autoquit /vr
      4. Then you can make a copy / move your shortcut to where you want it (i.e. your Windows Start menu)
    3. .
    4. If you want to add EDH4 to your EDO profile then you need to add an “additionalProduct” to your settings.json file which can be found at “%localappdata%/min-ed-launcher/”
          “apiUri”: ““,
          “watchForCrashes”: false,
          “language”: null,
          “autoUpdate”: true,
          “maxConcurrentDownloads”: 4,
          “forceUpdate”: “”,
          “processes”: [],

              { “sku”: “FORC-FDEV-DO-38-IN-40”, “filter”: “edh4” }
          “additionalProducts”: [
                      “filter”: “edh4”,

Mostly Clueless

  1. LittleBigYin – So if you’re trying to land on a planet and when you use the thrusters to move down towards the planet but it takes you past the happy to land bit you can instead of using the thrusters, you can toggle FA off and on it generally will drop you 5ft at a time. Makes it a an easier descent
