Multplayer (Playing Over VPN) Launcher .bat File

Author File Description

File Details
Game Version: AoE3

I've been playing on LAN (via OpenVPN) with my friends for a long time. After a few ip changes(on vpn clients), it became a hussle for everyone to first look at the assigned vpn ip, and change the shortcut to the assigned address and launch the game. So after 1 or 2 (3 tops) hours of googling, i wrote a tiny little bat file which checks the ip and then launches the game with overrideAddress parameter.



Explanation of bat file
When bat file first runs, it checks for a file named VAR_1.TXT under %APPDATA% directory(C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming)

If file doesn't exist, it wants user to select a directory(AOE3 main directory i.e:C:\Program Files (x86)\Age of Empires III - Complete Collection). It saves this directory to the VAR_1.TXT file mentioned above.


After that it checks for the assigned ip address and launches the aoe3.exe with overrideAddress parameter.



Usage:

First run your OpenVPN client, connect to server, see that you've been connected and assigned to an ip address, then launch the .bat file.
