Launcher PRO V5.1.0

 Launcher PRO V5.1.0 Build 90 is now available

Change Log:

Launcher PRO V5.0 hits a new milestone. This release entails a major revision, mostly in the underlying operations and inner workings of the Launcher. There are still so much to do, but a few of the big ones has made it to this release. I focused on compatibility on this one and eradicated some of the most niggling and persisting ones.

User Interface:

With this release, there's hardly any reason to visit the site. I have to add that the site need a long overdue update, but because of V3.0, I still need to keep it. There are a few options I'm considering but my focus is on the Launcher for now. Please ignore the very outdated content of the website, I will update it when the time comes.

QR code can now be seen from the Launcher's Account page. This doesn't require any Google API, so it should work on region where Google services are blocked. The QR code can be used in any standard TOTP generator like Microsoft, Authy...etc., not just Google Authenticator. I know it says Google Authenticator is required, but really, it isn't.

I realized that the previous FP (Vehicle Profile) Viewer was just awful. There's no reason for it to be in a treeview. I replaced it with a much nicer view, utilizing the UI elements I made for the FA/SVT-CAFD FDL calculators. Minor change but big impact.

Under the Hood:

I spent a great deal of time dealing with compatibility issue. I focused on leaving areas untouched if they don't need to be, ran a fine tooth comb through the source and identified where code needs to be injected, only where/when necessary. There's a significant boost in performance, compatibility and stability. I found new methods that are simply superior. These resulted in having to rewrite new codes, and eliminate most of the old ones. In a lot of ways, this is, yet again, all new. There's very little left of what was in the original 5.0 code base. It was intense, but highly rewarding. The result is V5.1

I highly encourage you to check this build out.


I can't stop everyone from asking via the comment section, so might as well, include some info here. If you want to know more about the Launcher V5.0, send me an email at

NCD/CAFD Tool Link down forever

 So some weird random guy appears to be claiming a copyright to my original work. Unfortunately, Mega listened to the poser.

Mega took down the link. Probably better off this way, anyway. The integrated tool is so much better

Anybody know who the heck this guy is?

Launcher PRO V5.0.7

 Launcher PRO V5.0.7 is now available

Change log

- Added FP/Vehicle Profile viewer (3.36+ only)
- Added FA-NCD/CAFD FDL Calculator for Coding 1/2 CAFs (3.36+ only)
- Added SVT-CAF FDL Calculator for Coding 1/2 CAFs (3.36+ only)
- Improved Mapping calculation speed
- Minor bug fixes

Added Features:

Another substantial release. I've been very busy adding these features in Launcher PRO. I like how they turned out. I've almost forgotten how nice these features are. Luckily, somebody reminded me.

The following screenshot shows the SVT-CAF FDL calculator. These are the "What-IFs" feature from the old NCD/CAFD Tool, integrated into Launcher PRO.

Not really useful feature, but I hate how small the button icons are. I increased the size a bit and added transparency, more to my liking. This is only implemented in the NCD/CAF Tool. I left the others as they are.

Hope you enjoy these new features as much as I enjoyed writing them. Let me know what you think.
