Kegetys ArmAII Launcher v1.01
Well, I'm finding it difficult to believe, but after searching a big bunch of Fan sites & Forums, I can't find any reference to it, yet I've been using it forever !
It definitely seems to be a little known fact that its out there, but worse still, I can't find where I orginally downloaded it from LOL
Even Kegetys it seems didn't get around to hosting it (visibly anyway) on his normal page.
So, in order to spread the word, I've uploaded a copy I had and made this post.
Its like the previous ArmA version by Kegetys, except it has a nice "Auto detect Mod Folders" feature now.
BTW, this was originaly released by Kegetys way before the current crop of launchers.

Kegs launcher is HERE... cunningly hidden on his website.
I hang out at his SoftTH forum occasionally, which is at the same site, otherwise I wouldn't have spotted his update at all...
The launcher and - I think - ArmaTools have had relatively recent updates, the rest is his Arma 1 stuff... not sure what Keg himself is up to, but that's not unusual
Back when Spirited Machine was starting his launcher dev, I suggested Kegs launcher as the simple-no nonsense model to follow, the one major drawback with Kegetys's one being lack of mod ordering... I had a chat with Keg about that once and his compromise was to define "mod strings" as "mods"... I used it like that from OFP days I think, right thru Arma - but I must admit I've been using Spirited Machines one more recently.....

You can also find this launcher on www.kegetys.net (news: 11.7.2009 ArmA 2 Launcher).
Thank you Kegetys!
Yeh, the only thing was the order of display and a guarantee of order of execution (ie which folder gets called first etc), but thats not a biggy, only a requirement for limited mods.
In OFP I found I could manually change the order of display by going into the Registry and playing with a few number. But thats not for the average PC user to mess with
Yeh, guess I kept looking on his AA tab!
So the old issue with loading sequence of modfolders is still there?
Guess that kegetys would have announced such an update if he had fix'd it...
Yeah! - that was Kegs other suggestion for mod-order - edit the registry!
I settled for defining mod strings - it was back in the day when there were lots of FX mods and the importance of mod order when layering stuff over ECS became apparent...
