L.A. Noire: How to Skip Launcher

by Admin

This very simple guide helps bypassing the launcher.

How to Skip Launcher

Method 1: launch the game directly

This method is the simplest and usually the best one.

  1. Right-click L.A. Noire in Steam > Properties > Local Files > Browse Local Files.
  2. Hover over LANoire.exe, hold right click and drag your cursor over to your desktop.
  3. Click “Create shortcuts here”.
  4. Right-click the newly created desktop icon and click Properties.
  5. In the target field, add -parentIsLauncher to the end of the field.
  6. You’re done!

Method 2: renaming EXEs

This method is more useful to Steam Big Picture Mode users.

  1. Right-click L.A. Noire in Steam > Properties > Local Files > Browse Local Files.
  2. Select LANLauncher.exe, press F2, copy the file name using Ctrl+C and add something like “Real” in the beginning to avoid conflicts.
  3. Select LANoire.exe and rename it by pressing F2 again and pasting the previously copied file name using Ctrl+V.
  4. Right-click the game in Steam > Properties > Set Launch Options.
  5. Enter/add -parentIsLauncher and press OK.
  6. Enjoy!

Note: redo the process after each update.
