RVGL Launcher supports the custom URI scheme
rvmm://. When a link starting
with this URI scheme is clicked, or typed manually in your browser, it will
automatically start the launcher and perform a command.
Before you can use this functionality, the URI must be registered. This is
automatically done the first time the launcher is run. If you want to register
it again for any reason, use the
Help -> Register URI menu option.
The following commands are currently supported:
rvmm:///: Run the launcher and do nothing else. If already running, switch the focus to the running launcher window.
rvmm://join/<ip-address>: Launch the game and directly connect to the specified IP address. For example,
rvmm://join/vas.rv.glattempts to join a game hosted at
rvmm://<download-link>: Download content specified by the download link and install it to the local pack. Automatically downloading and installing content this way is limited to a few whitelisted domains:

The launcher updates itself automatically. Updates are checked at each start. When a new version of the launcher is available, it'll be downloaded automatically and installed when you quit the application.
Automatic updates are turned off if the launcher is run from a git repo. So a way to disable checking for updates is to create an empty
.gitfolder in the launcher's folder.
The launcher keeps everything in its data and config folders. In a
install, both are tied to the current user account.
- On Linux, these folders are usually:

Console messages can be viewed by enabling

a Console tab to the UI, where log messages and errors are printed.
