About This Documentation


The documentation you will find here is (or will be over time) a collection of help files and guides mostly focused on the making of pafs . Because I am only just one man who has to live outside of my computer, this will take sometime to finish (if ever) so please forgive me on it's incompleteness. This will also serve as a reference/cheat-sheet for those (I know I'll need it, which is partly why I've started this) who need a quick reminder on certain functions and macros for use within the custom.nsh file.

I've started this because the documentation which is supplied with palAgain for this site, I'll be using PAL in reference to Launcher from now on. by doesn't have, in my opinion, any solid information on the power and complexities it's framework has. So I've taken it upon myself to begin working on this unofficial guide to making a PAF with PAL. I assume that you've read and gone over the offical documentation because if you haven't then you're going to have a rough time understanding certain topics that I'll be discussing considering I will be referencing from it as well.


Aside from the growing populous at, there is a small community of enthusiasts on the Discord chat platform that will be more then happy to help answer any of the questions that may arise during your quest for PAF enlightenment if you cannot find what you are looking for here.

I apologize about the floating navigation box to the right. It's supposed to be dynamically handled however I haven't gotten all the kinks worked out just yet. Worry not, I'm sure you already seen my big green arrow which came at you unexpectedly like that of Thor's hammer.. ...but if you haven't there's a little hamburger-styled icon up in the very top, left–most corner you can click for a better display of the navigation tree.
A PAFers Lineup

If you haven't already, download the required applications and files you will need before you proceed with making a PAF with this site. Grab a build of Installer, Launcher Generator, and a build of NSIS Portable, you can find the download links to these files below.

I use a modified variant of PAL which I'm currently developing. You can visit the GitHub project page here. It has the makings for better PAF development as the official version hasn't had any updates in several years.
