How To: Steam, Origin & Uplay license management setup
Posted by Panagiotis Mantzouranis on 05 October 2017 07:43 PM

This article explains how to configure your in-store accounts using the Steam, Origin & Uplay License Profiles

  • Add a new license profile to the executable and select the apropriate type. 

 

  • Add your accounts, filling username & password.

 

 

  • In the application executable, add the path to the steam/origin/uplay exe, eg. D:\games\origin\origin.exe

 

In the command line options add the following:

For Steamsteam://rungameid/GAMEID

For Originorigin2://game/launch/?offerIds=GAMEID

For Uplayuplay://launch/GAMEID

For Epiccom.epicgames.launcher://apps/GAMEID?action=launch

 

Replace GAMEID with the correct string depending on the game

 

To find out the correct GAMEID for a Steam and Uplay game, create the game's desktop shortcut, right click properties. The gameid is in the URL

 

To find out the correct GAMEID for an Origin game, login to https://www.origin.com with your origin account, select "My game Library" and the game. The  GAMEID is part of the URL on your browser.

 

Automatic termination of launcher after game has exited

 

Gizmo can automatically close the main launcher (steam/battlenet/origin) and release the game license when the actual game has exited.

In order for this feature to work, you need to enter the game executable in the license profile "child list"

For example, for PUBG, the main executable is TslGAme_BE.exe

If the game uses 2 or more executables, you can add all of them seperated by ;

Gizmo will track this specific executable, and close steam after the specified time.

 

Other method for origin

  • Open your Origin game installation folder, for example C:\Games\Electronic Arts\Origin\Origin Games\Battlefield 3\
  • Open  __Installer folder
  • Open with notepad the file "installerdata.xml"
  • Write down all the contentID numbers/text
  • Use the contentID in arguments in the following format: origin://launchgame/contentID1,contentID2,contentID3

Example: origin://LaunchGame/70619,71067,DGR01609244,DGR01609245
