We're gettin' a launcher, guys!

So far it'll draw the gui, grab the news from the ScrumbleShip website, unzip files, log in using the provided username and password, and launch the game.

It still needs to learn where to put the game, where to put its own settings files, how to check for updates, how to download the correct files, and how to send error reports. (if the user would like to send me error reports)

Once it does all that, I'll release it. Eventually it'll automagically install mods for you too, but that'll be a later addition.

Cheers,
-Dirk

This is fantastic! This will make updating, playing, and modding the game a much more cohesive and user-friendly experience.

It should REALLY help with troubleshooting problems - When the game crashes it, the launcher will detect the crash and ask the user if they'd like to send me a crash report, along with a short comment. I'll be able to get page after page of detailed reports from users.
