in my experience the typical behavior is that left clicking first is unnecessary in most applications. Right click a desktop icon without selecting it first, for example. Its just not a great desktop user experience... extra steppy and anything but obvious 

... and then answered my own question.... left click then right click... that's annoying

How do I change the rom I'm using for a given game if I picked the wrong one the first time?


Right clicking the game slot doesn't appear to do anything... is there a config file I can edit that I'm just not finding?

It looks like it needs the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x64) https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=14632 (I think dude updated the FAQ to include that tid bit)

So, I got over my annoyance at the launcher not working and played the game enough to realize it's pretty great. Enough so that I bought it again on steam. The steam installer installed some version or other of the visual c runtime and now both that and the itch version work... I'm not sure what version of the runtime it was, but take it for what its worth. This game is super fun :)

That... well that's just friggin shady. 

A working launcher for Windows 10!

It seemed like a wild goose chanse considering the game does launch from the jar, but I tried updating my drivers just in case... no dice

Trying to launch the .jar via java -jar desktop-1.0.jar results in:

,,,\AppData\Roaming\itch\apps\mewnbase\game>java -jar desktop-1.0.jar
MewnBase launch args:
[MewnBase] MoonBase.coreFolder = data/

so I copied the data folder intpp the game folder and tried again, still cant launch via the .exe but it does open by launching the jar directly


*edit: of course, I could have avoided copying the data driectoroy if I'd run java -r game/desktop-1.0.jar from the apps/mewndata folder instead of running it from inside game/


*edit 2: See below, he clarified this rambling nonsense ;)

Well, installing Java did *not* seem to help
