    I would like to request a plugin that indexs all installed Steam games and allows you to launch them from launchy.

    You don't need a plugin for that. Just create a shortcut for each game in any location indexed by launchy.

    They have changed how Steam works, now all of the shortcuts are treated as internet links. I have been having trouble getting this to work and have yet to find a solution.

      I know I'm necroing an old thread, but I found a semi-solution for this. The worst part about this is that you need to make actual shortcuts for Steam games. Throw those shortcuts in a folder & add that folder to the catalog of Launchy. For the file types of that folder, make it scan for all types then rescan. Launchy then picked up the games I had in this folder.

      It's not a pretty solution, but it works.

        Thanks for the tip Tristan, it works perfectly now!

        Edit : just to say, I found that Steam game shortcut extension is not .lnk (wich is the default file type filter) but .url
