Summary0001657: OpenClonk registers the same clonk:// url handler as Clonk Rage
DescriptionHaving a separate URL handler is essential for the games site which shows both CR and OC games. CR can't be updated to use a separate handler, so I used openclonk:// there. It would be nice if OC could register this (or a similar) URL handler instead.

I'm considering writing a small dispatcher that installs itself as a clonk: protocol handler and parses the reference to figure out which game to launch. Since CR doesn't really get any updates anymore that should be fine as long as people install OpenClonk later than CR. Alternatively we could also user-locally install the dispatcher whenever OpenClonk starts, which should override the machine-wide registration that CR installs, but that might lead to weird instances where on a PC which had CR installed after OC some users may have the dispatcher active while others don't, depending on whether they've ever launched OpenClonk before.

Funni complained that this is still an issue, so I added the extra handler for openclonk:// now.
