Want to bypass the Private Division launcher? Just use the same DIY methods some of us used for the previous entry!


Straight to the Point

This is oriented to Windows users, you Linux gurus will know how to translate this to your system anyway ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Open the game’s folder (by default it’s C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Kerbal Space Program 2\)
  2. Go inside the PDLauncher folder and create a new text file.
  3. Add the following contents to the file
    start ..\KSP2_x64.exe %command%
    • If you want to add launch parameters, add them after %command%!
  4. Change the extension of the text file (via renaming) to .bat
    • If you don’t see the file extensions by default, you have to enable the feature in the Windows Explorer’s options, check the image below for Windows 11:
  5. Go to your Steam Library, right-click Kerbal Space Program 2 in the list of games and go to Properties.
  6. Add the following text to the launch parameters:
    <file>.bat %command%
    • Replace <file> with the actual name of the file you created!
    • For a file named ksp.bat, it should look something like this:
  7. Profit!
