How to go straight to the login form? [was: "How to?"]

Post by visaboy » Wed Jan 12, 2011 1:26 am

How do I skip the first part of the client and go straight to the login form?

Code: Select all

mana -s server.themanaworld.org -p 6901
Any way to do it just by opening the mana.exe?

mana.exe? So you are using Windows? Moved to Windows support then.

1. Right-click on mana.exe
2. Select "create shortcut*"
3. right-click the shortcut
4. Select "Properties*"
5. Put -s server.themanaworld.org -p 6901 behind the path to mana.exe in the field "Target*".
6. Double-click the shortcut to mana.exe and the client will start and skip the server selection screen.
7. Put the shortcut on your desktop, in your start menu or your preferred location for program start shortcuts.

I'm asking if there's a way to hard code the ip and port into the client, not asking how to manually do that.

Hope that's more clear. :)

Back to general support, then.

Visaboy, you need to work on your written communication skills. How do you expect us to give you good advice what to do when you don't tell us what you want to achieve?
