# Is it posible to run Minecraft 1.10 without the launcher?

I've got an HTC Vive, and so going through the normal Minecraft launcher to play in VR is a pain, since I have to start the game and then switch to desktop mode to actually click launch.

What I want to do is create a .BAT file and link that into Steam, so I can kick the game off in one shot.

How could this be done?

Quote of Jonno in https://stackoverflow.com/questions/14531917/launch-minecraft-from-command-line-usename-and-password-as-prefix I don't know how to get this to work, assuming it can still work... (I think you have to drop the batch file into "C:\Program Files (x86)\Minecraft") PS: Sorry for formatting failure, this is my first post

Just create this batch command file in your game directory. Bat file takes one argument %1 as the username.

Also, I use a splash screen to make pretty. You will NOT be able to play online, but who cares.

NOTE: this is for version of minecraft as of 2016-06-27

• It's ugly. It will only work for one specific version, with no hope of manually updating it due to scope. It will not allow mods. Attitude of I don't know how to get this to work, assuming it can still work doesn't suit this site very well. And yet it might actually work – Deltharis Sep 6 '16 at 23:15
• This won't work for 1.10. – SevenSidedDie Sep 7 '16 at 0:12
• I am sorry for not being able to format it properly, but I did link to a page with the proper formatting, I merely copied the post in case the other comment gets removed and or the thread gets taken down. Does everyone down vote every post they see? – over00lord Sep 7 '16 at 0:28
• If what SevenSidedDie says is true - there is nothing wrong here, answers that don't work SHOULD get downvotes. I know you don't have the ability to comment yet, but a link with information that could be helpfull that you didn't check yourself is comment material. – Deltharis Sep 7 '16 at 9:01
