As this is a major update to the EE LaunchPad I wanted to put a note out here too.
The LaunchPad has been updated to version 3.0.0, this version brings something I have been wanting to add for a while. When installing the new LP you will be faced with a new install process, this is to configure out new background process.
The background process will collect a full list of the games you have added (a master list of games is due in the next update) to your LaunchPad, it will periodically check to see if you are playing a game from that list, if you happen to be doing so, it will update the website and begin recording your hours, once you have finished playing it will log your hours played. This service negates the need to open the LP client or come to the website to launch your games, instead you can launch them direct from Steam, Origin, etc.
In order for this to work you will be asked to enter some information while installing the LaunchPad, one of which will be your LP PIN. In order to generate this you will need to go the client or website version before installing, there will be a button to generate your PIN just above your total in game hours.
You also have a choice to have this background process run with Windows startup or launch only when you want it open. There is a file under the EE folder in your start menu that will allow you to close this background process should you need to do so (along with an option to launch it). This background process has been named EELP in the current release.
This version also brings a smarter install/update process, while it wont work during this install, updates from version 3.0 will go a lot smoother and there will be no redundant steps.
Any questions or issues please do post them below.
