The Steam right-click menu for Shadow Warrior Classic Redux allows me to play the game expansions Wanton Destruction and Twin Dragon.

If I utilize the option in the same right-click menu to Create Desktop Shortcut, the resulting shortcut takes me right to the original game.

How can I create a desktop shortcut for each of the expansions?

(I am running Steam on a Linux system, if it matters)

    I wonder two things: if there are launch options for this particular game that allow you to start it up straight to that "subgame" and if you can then just create a desktop shortcut that runs the game using said launch option.

Create a shortcut to the main game Shadow Warrior, and add -addon1 for Wanton Destruction, -addon2 for Twin Dragon.

Or just copy the following lines:

  • Shadow Warrior: Wanton Destruction: steam://rungameid/225160//-addon1
  • Shadow Warrior: Twin Dragon: steam://rungameid/225160//-addon2

  • Is the addon order relative to purchase date? Am wondering if it'll always be addon1 = Wanton Destruction, or if it's going to be relative to the order displayed in the context menu. Commented Nov 3, 2021 at 14:16
  • @RoddyoftheFrozenPeas I believe it has to do with release date.

    This worked! I get an additional "verify game launch options" box I have to click OK on, but that's acceptable. Commented Nov 7, 2021 at 14:05
  • @Joachim apologies, I thought I had. done. Commented Nov 8, 2021 at 18:54
