Myself and another are writing a chat program and we want to be able to launch games from it. We can already take people from the chat room and launch tem into directplay games, btu games like rogue spear and quake 3 we dont know that is done. If anyone knows how it is done and knows where we can get the API calls to launch a group of people into thes.e non directplay games please contact me at sean@rick.org

If you want to launch an executable use either ShellExecuteEx or CreateProcess (if you either want a lot of control over the spawned process or feel like a badass). I don''t know how you would put them into a game from there though.

This should be possible via createprocess so long as the game supports command line options to launch to multiplayer. Generally if gamespy can you probably should be able to as well.
