Valiance Windows Launcher

Note: The launcher uses a modified instance of our game engine’s build system. We are currently working to add an installation directory option, but in the meantime, the launcher will install the payloads to this directory:


You can change it though, by adding a parameter to the launcher:

Create a new directory on your D drive (or wherever). It's important that it be an empty directory, because the launcher will delete files in there if they don't seem like they're part of the game!

Find the launcher and right click it, choose Create Shortcut

Right click the short cut and choose Properties. On the "Target" line, add this to the end: -saveto "D:\wherever\you\want"

It will look something like C:\downloads\Valiance_Launcher_32bit.exe -saveto "D:\games\valiance"

Start the game by double clicking that shortcut, instead of double clicking the game executable itself.

Note the server may occasionally go down from "stress" or for patching. A Mac client will be available soon.

Website accounts and game accounts are currently separate. You need to set up an account for both. This will change in an upcoming patch.

Please note that in the launch fix listed above, you can not have a space between the - and the saveto or it'll do nothing.

No worries but good to hear!

Yes, sorry it took so long to answer. Tbh I don't use steam that often.

@Sunstealer Patch is up... is it working now?
Silverhelm Studios May 31, 2015 @ 6:09pm 
@Crater Labs: We're still in pre-alpha so the game is relatively small (currently about 987MB). That will change down the road but for now, I wouldn't worry about it.

Weird comment: is it recommended to give this game its own partition? Will it start eating up other files on my regular C drive if I just let it go to the default C:\Users\GameStudio\AppData\Local\ValianceOnline directory? I'm really excited to try this. :-)

Ah well. Redownloading didn't help. the message says - 'Incorrect client version! You need 0.0.1 but you have 0.0.0. A new releasee has been issued. Please visit for the latest release information.'

Nothing new at that location and the launcher there is the same one I have.
