    This looks great. I'm already loving it more than PSO2 Tweaker. I have a few questions though:

    1. Could you make the mod support more clear and obvious? The only mention anywhere that you can do this is in this thread, while the GitHub readme and the UI itself make no mention of it at all. It's a really useful feature, and I could see it going completely unnoticed if it isn't made more obvious.

    2. Every time I start up Astra, I get the setup window saying that it's detected my PSO2 installation. Is this supposed to happen on non-initial launches? I'd expect it to just immediately go into the main Astra window after I've already set it up.

    3. When I launch PSO2, the Astra window stays open, but nothing really changes in it. The "Launch PSO2" button is still there and I can still click it again, but it just fails to open due to files being locked or something. Would it perhaps be prudent for Astra to detect when PSO2 is already running, and then gray out the "Launch PSO2" button or change it to "PSO2 Running" or "Quit PSO2" or something?

    Thanks a lot for this. It's already great - fast, minimal, stable, open source - and I imagine it'll get even better as it matures and polishes a bit.

    Heya.

    The mods folder was really just a first draft implementation. I know many existing mods do not directly accept this format and prefer instead to patch the game themselves which does not work with this. I don't use mods myself so I was not able to actually test the feature. When I am sure it works and am happy with the implementation it will get recognition in the UI.

    Your other two ideas are great and have been added to the TODO list, thanks!

    Wanted to try it for shits and giggles, but it looks like you launcher depends on the Windows registry to find where PSO2 is located, which is not very convenient for people who have their games installed on a secondary drive and don't re-install them after a Windows installation. I've check your config files, but they looks more like .NET and SQL stuff than PSO2 configurations.

    I'm one of those people, and it detected PSO2 just fine. It's the game folder, not pso2_bin.
    Do you have ANY bug in PSO2? Are you creating yet another thread about how you can't take screenshots, your game crashes, or textures are missing AGAIN? Do you NOT search the forum before asking? Then the L.A.W. FIX is for YOU!

    It's EASY! Just go: Tweaker -> [!] button -> Other tasks -> Enable Large Address Aware, and you're DONE! Just remember to do it EVERY UPDATE!

    The only use of the registry at this time is for cleaning out game guard when it breaks.
