Eclipse Connect - Engine and Game Manager
Mohenjo Daro and I have been working on a launcher/manager called Eclipse Connect.

Eclipse Connect is a launcher which can be used to download the new games and engines posted by the users. Once there is an update, the launcher can collect data automatically and prompt you to update. We also Feature games and engines so if we like it, we can feature it :D
Uploading your games to EC:
~Make a thread on your game and the link to new updates. Follow the tutorial for Mohenjo Daro’s updater (https://www.eclipseorigins.com/topic/86173/mohenjo-daro-s-updater-tutorial-setup)
~Then PM us or use our google forms to upload your games. We will then put your game on EC.
~EC supports all games and engines, and they don’t need to be made with any Eclipse engines. However, making a thread for the updates is necessary.
And you are done! Users can then check Eclipse Connect and download your game with a built in updater so it’s easy for users to update!
~Keep your game/engine description to less than 300 characters.
Main features of EC:
- Download user uploaded games and engines
- Easily launch through the “My Packages” Section
- Runs in background mode so you can get notifications if a game has a new update
- Featured games and engines
- List view for seeing many games at once and tiled for seeing the details before downloading
- Tile view shows everything from online
- Can go to the game/engine’s web site or page
- Delete packages
- EC auto updates itself on launch and will relaunch when complete.
Andur loaded and ready to play!

The list view to see many packages at once
As a side note, any games using Google Drive to host their files will require the user to log in (you only have to login once, after that it will allow you to download the others that use Google Drive). I am trying to make a work around for this.
Current Version: 1.0.2: DOWNLOAD
This link is used by EC to update, please use one of the download links at the top of the page.

Great work :D
Thanks :) Solid and I worked our butts off to get this ready, and it’ll be out soon
wow this sounds great, now to get my game working and uploaded
Wow it sounds great! :D
Will it support Atlas?
Can’t wait to get to use this!
Yes, it will support Atlas, in fact it will support Intersect and RPMMaker as well. It can support about anything since it just downloads the files from the link provided.
The trailer has been added to the main post!
Solid and I agreed to release EC after game jam, this way we have more games on it :)
Game jame is done and so is EC, the links are in the first post!
Suggestion: add a search bar to EC so if there are loads of games, people can still search for certain ones.
