Command Line Arguments

This hack is affected by certain Command Line Arguments for the Mod Launcher.

Version History

1.23.10

  • Made it use the new Discord GameSDK instead of the obsolete Discord RPC if the DLL file for it (discord_game_sdk.dll) happens to inexplicably be in the Mod Launcher's DLLs folder.
    • Also added the -discordrpc to opt out of this.
    • To be clear, this DLL is not included with the Mod Launcher. If you want to use it for some reason, you can get it here.
  • Fixed an issue when logging state updates after 3:14:07 AM on January 19th, 2038 UTC.
  • Made this hack tell Discord the command to start the Mod Launcher so Discord doesn't try launching Simpsons.exe with an incorrect working directory when clicking Play/Play Game.
    • Also added the -nodiscordregistercommand command line argument to opt out of this.
      • When using Discord RPC, this causes the old behaviour of Discord updating the command to be wrong.
      • When using Discord GameSDK, this causes Discord to just not update the command.
  • Added the -discordloadinitialise command line argument. This makes the hack initialise Discord RPC / GameSDK as soon as the hack loads.
    • This used to be the default behaviour prior to Version 1.22 but it often causes rich presence to not work because Discord handles this poorly.

1.23.8

  • Added the -nodiscordrichpresence command line argument.
  • Made the Bonus Mission, Street Race and Wager Race titles configurable by mods.

1.23

Updated the description of this hack.

1.22

  • Added the "RapidJSON" license.
  • Made this hack output DISCORD RICH PRESENCE: Initialising... when initialising Discord RPC.
  • Made this hack wait until the main menu to initialise Discord RPC.
    • This seems to make the hack work far more reliably than before.

1.21

  • Fixed an oversight where the hack was listed on Windows XP.
  • Updated to a newer version of Discord RPC.

1.18

Moved this hack to the new "Settings" page.

1.16.3

Added this hack.
