Making xfire work for IncognitoCO

***If you actively use xfire for retail conquer, you will need to have a backup copy of the xfire_games file as well as (recommended at least) a separate account to separate the videos.

xfire can be downloaded [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Depending on what OS you have, the file that you need to edit might be indifferent locations.
For Win7 OS, xfire_games will be located C:\ProgramData\Xfire
For XP/Vista, xfire_games will be located C:\Program Files\Xfire

***Before you start to edit the files, exit out of xfire if it is already running.

Open up xfire_games and search for "Conquer Online", and you should see something like this:
Code:
[4632_1]
LongName=Conquer Online
ShortName=conquer
LauncherDirKey=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\Conquer 1.0\Path
LauncherEXE=play.exe
DetectExe=conquer.exe
Launch=%UA_LAUNCHER_EXE_PATH% %UA_LAUNCHER_EXTRA_ARGS% %UA_LAUNCHER_NETWORK_ARGS%
InGameRenderer=D3D8


[4632_2]
LongName=Conquer Online
ShortName=conquer
LauncherDirKey=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\Conquer 2.0\Path
LauncherEXE=play.exe
DetectExe=conquer.exe
Launch=%UA_LAUNCHER_EXE_PATH% %UA_LAUNCHER_EXTRA_ARGS% %UA_LAUNCHER_NETWORK_ARGS%
InGameRenderer=D3D8
RunElevated=1

What we are going to edit are the LauncherDirKey and LauncherEXE locations (for both [4632_1] and [4632_2]) so that it will recognize and detect IncognitoCO as opposed to retail CO.

For LauncherDirKey, we need to put in the location of the Incognito Folder, easiest way if you don't know where the folder is located is to right click on the launcher and open file location. Then you just copy the address bar at the top of the window (mine being C:\Program Files (x86)\IncognitoCo).

For LauncherEXE, rename the play.exe in the notepad to Incognito Launcher.exe

After editing both locations, you should end up with something similar to this:
Code:

[4632_1]
LongName=Conquer Online
ShortName=iConquer
LauncherDirKey=C:\Program Files (x86)\IncognitoCo
LauncherEXE=Incognito Launcher.exe
DetectExe=conquer.exe
Launch=%UA_LAUNCHER_EXE_PATH% %UA_LAUNCHER_EXTRA_ARGS% %UA_LAUNCHER_NETWORK_ARGS%
InGameRenderer=D3D8
InGameFlags=ENABLE_MOUSE|USE_DINPUT_MOUSE


[4632_2]
LongName=Conquer Online
ShortName=iConquer
LauncherDirKey=C:\Program Files (x86)\IncognitoCo
LauncherEXE=Incognito Launcher.exe
DetectExe=conquer.exe
Launch=%UA_LAUNCHER_EXE_PATH% %UA_LAUNCHER_EXTRA_ARGS% %UA_LAUNCHER_NETWORK_ARGS%
InGameRenderer=D3D8
InGameFlags=ENABLE_MOUSE|USE_DINPUT_MOUSE
RunElevated=1

Save the file and start up your xfire.

After you've started up xfire, go to tools -> launch -> detect games and let the program detect installed games and whatnot.
Look through your Installed Games to see if Conquer Online is there. If not, check Not Installed and browse through there.

After you've found Conquer Online some options will show up on the right side of the window.

Choose to Manually Detect the paths of the game.

Press browse and navigate to the folder which your IncognitoCO is located, and it should pick up the launcher.exe, as well as the conquer.exe

After that just press apply, restart xfire and conqueronline and you should see a xfire connection established on the bottom right of your IncognitoCO screen when you log in.
