Launch Profiles

You can set up different profiles to launch Cyberpunk 2077 from inside Wolvenkit. Via Launch Profiles, you can select what should happen when you press the button.

Configuration

Where to configure

With a long click on the Install button, you can open a dropdown menu that lets you pick a launch profile:

Available options

Create Backup of previous build

This will not work in combination withClean after build to save disk space

Create zip file

Same as the Create Zip button in the toolbar: Will generate a zip file ready for Nexus upload.

Install to Game directory

Installs your mod to your Cyberpunk 2077 directory

Clean before build to prevent errors

Clears the packed directory before building. Not doing this may lead to leftover files in the resource directories or have other side effects, so you'll want to keep this checked.

Clean after build to save disk space

Clears the packed directory after building/installing/creating a zip file. Check this to save diskspace, but note that it will disable Create Backup of previous build.

Pack as REDmod

Check this to pack your mod as REDMod rather than as a legacy mod. You don't generally want this, as it can lead to load order issues and increase your users' demands for support.

Deploy as REDmod

Launch Game

Launch the game after installing the mod. Without this, the next three options will do nothing.

Load last savegame

When you start the game, it will load your last savegame (by timestamp).

This is slightly faster than mods that auto-trigger save-load, as it skips the start-up menu completely.

Load specific savegame

Loads a specific savegame by name (or tries to).

This is slightly faster than mods that auto-trigger save-load, as it skips the start-up menu completely.
