Pass commands to the OS?

Can I pass commands to the OS?

I want to make an Ace Of Spades launcher with BGE. It needs to pass this command:
It would also be nice to have it open an executable file on windows, so I can launch the spadille.exe server browser.

I am assuming I will just do the mouse enable script on game launch.
Then have a mouseover+LMB to trigger some sort of script.

Thank you in advanced.

You can use Python to do that. Please check the Python documentation.

Thanks monster!

Here is what i came up with:

import os
var = “explorer”

This will open explorer in windows, so it works properly.
But this will do nothing:
import os
var = “explorer” + “G:”

So i try to add it all

import os
var = “explorer g:”

and now it will do nothing still.

I have a feeling it has to do with the punctuation characters in the address.

Ok, I went back to Google after getting key words from the manual and got this :

import os
os.spawnl(os.P_NOWAIT, ‘C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\Steam.exe’, ‘steam://rungameid/41700’, ‘’)

Lots of punctuation, and it works fine now :slight_smile:

Thanks again Monster. You lead me in the right direction . I found lots of new information in the reference manual too.
