Ah, I was wondering if PWE was going to do something like this. Many other F2P companies have a similar all-in-one launcher like this and I've found them nice. I'll download it and check it out in a little bit.

Hrm...

So it's basically like steam but for PWE only? Kinda interesting concept. I'll download it, give it a try and give my impressions after I've looked at it.

Please do! We'd love to hear your feedback.

Also, please note that most features are not available for STO yet, but we hope to be able to offer them in the future!

Cheers,

Yeah, it sounds like Steam, but with far fewer features and games. Frankly, there are better things for PWE to spend money on.

By the way, what ever happened to Core Connect integration?

So how long until this becomes mandatory/the only way to launch STO?

Interesting!

Would be cool if this offers an easy way to keep in touch with friends in game, and chat in fleet channels etc.

Setting all of that up in Pidgin isn't the most straight-forward of methods.

[Edit] A bit of feedback:

The app allows users to set a directory, but that seems to be both the download and install directory. It's not clear.

It's great that Arc recognises I've already got certain games installed, and knows where they are - so I don't need to re-install via Arc.

It's also nice how clicking play seems to automatically log me in via the game's launcher - that removes a step.
