The Launcher

The Launcher is a tool that can launch a platform-specific client to connect to your deployments. It’s great for quickly testing your latest build and sharing your project with others.

The Launcher can only launch Unity and Unreal client workers.

Using the Launcher

To use the launcher, you need to have a cloud deployment running. See Deploying to the cloud for details of how to run a deployment.

Once you’ve got a deployment running, you can either launch a client directly from the Console, or create a link that will let anyone launch a client.

Launch a client directly

  1. Open the Console.
  2. Find your deployment and click on its name. The page that opens will shows an overview of the deployment.
  3. Click the ▶ Launch button on the left, and follow the instructions.
