    Hi everyone,

    I'm just starting to developer a utility where I need run Raceroom game with some parameters like server name and password of the session that player will be joined. My interest is open the game directly inside server that I want and do not force player to select server and type password.

    Until now I run the game by command line using the below command:

    >steam://rungameid/211500

    After some google's search, I found some options that can be used like

    >steam://rungameid/211500 -connect=address:port

    Anyone knows how to do this?

    Thanks

    great idea.
    Now we need to wait for Setctor3's response to see her interest in having new users on a really well done system.

    Dunno if you found the solution yourself already but maybe someone else is having the same issue, so...

    Steam use a very own logic for adding start parameters to a game shortcut:
    steam://rungameid/123456//-parameter1 -parameter 2 -etc... -and -more
