I have an autohost app for Space Empires which I use to process turns in multiplayer games, but when I hook it up to the Steam instance of SE5, I find that it uploads the turn before it finishes processing!

Here is the command line I'm using in my batch file:

"C:\Users\edkol\Documents\Apps\Steam\steam.exe" -applaunch 1690 %*

And the arguments that get passed in as %* are just the standard SE5 command line arguments to process a turn, something like this template:

"{EnginePath}\Savegame\{GameCode}.gam" "{Password}" -moddir "{ModPath}"

So is there something I can add to my command line to wait for SE5 to exit before returning?
