Project Launcher

When you start Wwise, the Project Launcher dialog box opens with all your recently accessed projects displayed in the Recent Projects list. In Wwise, a project contains all your assets, the properties and behaviors that you set for each platform and language, and other Wwise elements such as Events, Presets, and logs. In the Project Launcher you can open an existing project and create a new project.

After the project is created, you can use the standard Windows Explorer (or Mac Finder) features to copy, move, rename, and delete your project files. You can also open your project directly from Windows by double-clicking the WPROJ file in the project folder.

Additionally, you can access the Project Launcher from within Wwise. The Project Launcher opens when you close a project, allowing you to open another project or exit Wwise. Before the Project Launcher opens, you will be prompted to save any changes to the current project.
