Revive Helper: easy tool for Revive (multiplayer & desktop shortcut)

Post by TheGreatCabbage2 » Sun Aug 11, 2019 5:00 pm

Hi everyone :)

As many of you are aware, launching multiplayer sessions with Revive can be difficult. However, I've found a solution to the problem which enables launching multiplayer sessions seamlessly with Revive.

To do this, I developed a small browser extension and a desktop program* which work together to handle launching Condor2 from the Server List. The program also allows you to easily create a desktop shortcut for opening Condor2 via Revive from the desktop.

You can download the installer, "setup.exe" from the GitHub releases page at https://github.com/TheGreatCabbage/cond ... r/releases.
Instructions are at https://github.com/TheGreatCabbage/cond ... he-program.

The program has links to install the browser extension for Chrome and Firefox. Once the program and extension are installed, you'll be prompted to open "parcl" when you click "Join (VR)" on the Condor Server List**. Ticking the checkbox and pressing ok will allow you to open multiplayer sessions via Revive with a single click.

I hope this helps someone else as much as it helps me! Feedback and suggestions are welcome :)

*Both the program and the extension are fully open-source and available on GitHub:
Condor2 Revive Helper - https://github.com/TheGreatCabbage/cond ... ive-helper
Condor2 Extension - https://github.com/TheGreatCabbage/cond ... -extension

**It's called "parcl" because I'm using the parcl Gradle plugin to package the program as an executable.

Thanks for the information. It looks like the issue is caused by the program incorrectly identifying your username as "MY". Would you be able to confirm whether or not your username is "MY"?

Thanks :-)

Thanks, that's helpful. I think I've fixed the issue now, so would you mind uninstalling the current version, then installing the new one and checking if it works? Here's the link to the downloads page again: https://github.com/TheGreatCabbage/cond ... r/releases

Thanks :-)

Hi,
I might miss something but I can't get the Helper to work.
Did the installation as described in your post and/or on Github, also created the desktop icon for Condor2 VR, but clicking on it does - nothing.
Any idea?

Hi,

Sorry for the late reply.

You could double-check that the paths to Condor and Revive, shown in the Revive Helper, are correct; don't forget to use "save and exit" to save them instead of closing the window. The Revive path should be the path to the Revive folder inside the Revive folder, so it will be something like "C:\Program Files\Revive\Revive".

Hope this helps.

Cabbage, thanks for the cool tool.

I have the same issue as cyberpanic. I see a momentary loading wheel (less than a second) and then nothing.
Normal injection works fine. I've confirmed the paths are correct and confirmed clicking "Save and Exit".
64-bit, Win 10 Home 1903, OS-build 18362.476

In the error.log is this reference to ReviveInjector_x64.exe:

Code: Select all

Exception in thread "main" java.io.IOException: Cannot run program "D:\Program Files\Revive\Revive\ReviveInjector_x64.exe" (in directory "D:\Program Files\Revive\Revive"): CreateProcess error=2, The system cannot find the file specified
	at java.lang.ProcessBuilder.start(ProcessBuilder.java:1048)
	at com.cabbagedevelopment.condor2helper.CondorLauncher.launch(CondorLauncher.kt:38)
	at com.cabbagedevelopment.condor2helper.MainApplicationKt.main(MainApplication.kt:30)
Caused by: java.io.IOException: CreateProcess error=2, The system cannot find the file specified

	at java.lang.ProcessImpl.start(ProcessImpl.java:137)
	at java.lang.ProcessBuilder.start(ProcessBuilder.java:1029)
	... 2 more
Poking around the Revive install folder I don't see a ReviveInjector_x64.exe file anywhere. The only contents of D:\Program Files\Revive\Revive\ are the x64 and x86 sub dirs. (Confirmed this is Revive v1.9.1.)

I tried moving the contents of ...\Revive\Revive\x64 to ...\Revive\Revive and renaming ReviveInjector.exe to ReviveInjector_x64.exe. That results in an empty error.log and suspended Condor2 object in Windows Task Manager. (screenshot

As you've probably seen from my post on GitHub, this should now be fixed in the latest release (1.0.4).

For anyone else with the same problem, please try the following:

- Install the new version from the Releases page.
- Open the Revive Helper and click "Save and exit".
- Open the desktop shortcut or click a "Join (VR)" link from the Server List.
