[Open Assets] LauncherBlast2 reBoot

The current version is: reBoot-1.4

Hello sonic fans, I appear out of nowhere to present to you, yet another SRB2 launcher. This time, it's LauncherBlast2 again- but wait..

that's right! it's a reBoot (i'm sorry for the awful pun i promise I'll crawl back into my lil' corner when this is released and only return for bugfixes)

So, I decided the old LauncherBlast2 wasn't good enough for 2.2 and it hurts me internally to think people would use such an ugly utility for such a beautiful, gorgeous game. LauncherBlast2 really sister-snapped this time and has had an entire makeover to the point you wouldn't even recognise her!

(EDIT: I actually got a compiled executable to work! woohoo!)

On windows:
download the, extract the exe to your SRB2 directory, and then double click it to run.
ugly console popup because for some reason if it doesn't pop up the launcher crashes when it tries to open srb2.

On Linux (and/or Mac OS (i cannot test it on mac, so please let me know how that goes))
download, extract to your SRB2 directory, and use a terminal to CD to the directory.
Make sure python is installed using whichever of the following commands is relevant to you (if it's different, you'd probably already know how to do this step)

sudo apt-get install python3
sudo pacman -S python3
Once that's done, install PyQt5 and FeedParser in python3
python -m pip install PyQt5
python -m pip install feedparser
and then you should be good to go. to run the launcher run this command
python LauncherBlast2-reBoot.pyz

If any bugs are found please let me know! Please also try to take note of what you did and try to reproduce the error so I know exactly where it is.

Also, after a bit I'll release the source code in a zip (though, it's python, the ".pyz" is just a form of zip anyway that python can run)
