To launch the game a player currently has to open the launcher:

Then, clicking on the button "PLAY" opens a (fullscreen) loading screen (even if you set the option in CMO to make it appear in windowed mode):

And finally, the main game menu appears:

I suggest to get rid of the (fullscreen) loading screen and to integrate it into the launcher itself, making it a real launcher (with a progress bar). This way, the CMO window could be able to load in the background.


Here is a mockup GIF that I made:

I don't think that's true since i've never used it, I just use the command exe directly. That said the auto fullscreen without regard to settings is annoying.

This is not possible ATM, I'm afraid.

Understood. Tweaked this for the next update release so that the start window (ie. spinning globe window) now uses full-screen or maximized state (ie. taskbar visible) that mirrors the preference on the main map window.
