Insanity's Oblivion Launcher
App Launching Made Easy
Name: Insanityâ€™s Oblivion Launcher (ISOBL)
.Net Framework 2.0
Insanityâ€™s Oblivion Launcher or ISOBL for short is an application designed to effortlessly launch multiple applications with a simple click of a button.
The amount of available launch options is quite high and covers most of the most used modding tools, as well as Oblivion and the Construction Set.
When running ISOBL for the first time it will generate an INI file, this file is a pre-save INI meaning that it is suggested you restart ISOBL after it the INI has been generated so it can default some settings.
Now after that is done, be sure to use the Directories option and set the directories for Oblivion and the modding tools you use. Once you have done that use the INI Options to save the INI file, all settings will be saved.
Aside from the ability to launch modding tools, Oblivion and the Construction set, ISOBL can do other things too.
ISOBL has the ability to launch some of the more common and popular websites, I.e. Bethsoft Forums, TES Alliance and TES Nexus to name a few. It also has a couple of other helpful links for the likes of the BOSS Masterlist, OBSE and Wrye Musings.
On top of the in-built options there are 6 custom launch options. Two of these are custom Application launch options allowing you to select two apps that ISOBL will be able to launch; these can be changed at anytime.
The other four are custom folder launchings, i.e. you can set shortcuts to some of your most used folders, like the Data folder or a screenshots folder for example.
ISOBL will keep track of the Application or Folder name as well as the path; ISOBL will also place the names on the launch buttons too.
ISOBL like many other launch apps can play the Oblivion launcher music when itâ€™s opened; the difference here is that with ISOBL you can set the music you want to play. In the settings Tab you will find an option to set your chosen music file.
Note: To cut down on requirements and distributed files, ISOBL currently only supports WAV files.
A new feature added to ISOBL is an Auto-Detect feature which will attempt to detect your Oblivion Install and your MyGames folder.
This new feature is limited to these two detections currently, but future plans are to expand this further.
Using the settings tab itâ€™s now possible to set a default tab for ISOBL. The Default tab is the tab that is shown when ISOBL loads. The default tab is the Tools Tab.
1. Extract ISOBL.EXE and ReadMe from the Archive
2. Run ISOBL.EXE
Tip: Extract the exe to your oblivion directory and create a shortcut of it to the desktop, this way the ISOBL.ini wonâ€™t take space on the desktop. Or alternatively you can hide the ISOBL.ini from its properties.
1. Delete EXE
2. Delete the ISOBL.ini file
Remove the older version before using the new one.

Thanks to Bethesda for creating Oblivion.
Thanks to my testers, without them Iâ€™m sure ISOBL would have had a lot of bugs.
