Direct connect Via "Set Launch Options" in steam no longer works

**Game mode: Online private
**Type of issue: Misc
Server type: PvE
**Region:EU


Prior to the update it was possible to complete a direct launch using launch options within the steam properties dialog.

Example : +connect ip.goes.here:7777 +password the-password-goes-here

This would pre-populate the direct launch dialog within the game and now no longer works.

It now displays “Failed to Connect to Game” and the direct connect dialog does not display at all.


Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:

  1. Right click on the game and select properties in steam
  2. Select “SET LAUNCH OPTIONS”
  3. Input “+connect 0.0.0.0:7777 +password thepasswordgoeshere”
    4.Press OK
    5.Launch Conan
