OLauncher supports launching through an INI file as well. If you run
OLauncher.exe without any command line arguments, OLauncher will generate an INI in the directory where it was run. From there, you can fill out the game details and save the file. Running
OLauncher.exe again with the INI beside it will launch whatever is found in the INI.
OLauncher’s INI that is created is named after the EXE file, so you can have multiple EXE files that run multiple INI files.
OLauncher.exe.iniand read from it.
OLauncher-masseffect.exe.iniand read from it.
This allows you to have multiple EXEs and INIs in one directory.
OLauncher is a script that allows you to launch Origin games from within the Steam client. Launching games through this script is automated, from automatically starting Origin to launching the game that is listed within the OLauncher.ini file. Once the game is shutdown, the script will ask if you would like to keep Origin running or shut it down as well.
Running Origin games through this script should allow the Steam overlay to work, though not guaranteed.
By using this script in any way, you agree to the following disclaimer:

I am also not responsible if this script works as intended, blows up your computer, eats your lunch, fails to do what you expect, or becomes sentient.
