Having trouble getting started with the W3D Hub Launcher? Here's a nifty walkthrough!
Step 0. Download and install the Launcher. (This can take a few minutes.)
Step 1. Open the launcher and click "Games".
Step 2. Click the game you want to play. Right now, Red Alert: A Path Beyond (APB), Tiberian Sun: Reborn (TSR), and Expansive Civilian Warfare (ECW) are the only ones that are released to the public.
Step 3. Click "Install."
Step 4. Wait for the game packages to be downloaded and installed completely. You must leave the launcher open during this process. Occasionally this process will fail the first time around, usually due to an unstable internet connection. If this happens, just exit the smaller download window and click "Install" again. Only the packages that failed to download the first time will be re-downloaded, and then the install process will complete automatically.
Step 5. Click on "Server Browser" and join any available server (More will appear as more games are released). It may take a few seconds for player count to display, but you can join the server immediately.
Step 6. If this is your first time playing after installing, you may have to configure your video / audio settings. Sometimes these settings will not actually take effect until you start the game for the second time. Additionally, if you click your monitor (Generic PnP Monitor in the example image), you might reveal more resolution options that are specific to the monitor you will be playing the game on.
Step 7. You're now in game!
