Alright, I didn't make this program. But it is an open program. Just starting with that.

To get the start button to work you need to change your OTClient.exe name to Engine.exe

To use this you need to edit 2 files

Client Side:
LunaUndater.ini

Website Side:
updater.php

Put your servers IP address into the correct places in these files. You cannot use a no-ip domain or any other redirect IP. It must be the actual IP of the server.


HOW TO ADD THE FILES INTO CORRECT PLACES

Client Side:
Place the lunaupdater.exe and lunaupdater.ini file in your OTClient files.

Place the Lunaupdater folder in your OTClient data folder.


Website Side:
Place the LunaUpdater folder into your main website files.



HOW TO ADD AN UPDATE

Lets do an example...

If you edited an image for OTC UI the file would be in: data>images>ui

So in the update folder in the LunaUpdater website folder you would need to make a folder called data, then make a folder inside that called images then another folder in that called ui and place the image in that.

To make it easy you can just add all the files in your data folder into the lunaupdater>update.

After you have added your updated files you need to use the: LunaUpdate Generator in the website files.

The exe will open on the top left click the drop down and select "create filelist"

Then you are done and when a player opens the updater it will update their client.


WHAT THIS NEEDS

With this being possible we need OTC to check if the files have been updated or tell the players they need to update and not allow the program to start. This way players will have to be updated.

WHY USE THIS

Players will no longer have to re download your files each time you do any sprite updates, ect. It will automatically do it for them.

Hope this is useful for someone.

Why don't you just post it and they won't have to pm you?
Actually you didn't even make this. You found it on this thread and posted it here.

I don't see what is funny about your statement because maybe I want to "lol" along with you. You are not the original poster of this thread so I do not understand why you made it. Unless you are trying to tell us you are Itutorial?

Its funny because I didnt say I made it you clown. I said it was an open project to (or released) that is. So, I am not posting something I stole. So the fact you came and told me I didn't make it, when I posted that I didn't make it in the original thread makes you an idiot. That is why he is laughing.

If I am the idiot or a clown then why are you the one telling people to pm you for the source code? You could have just posted it here to begin with and we could have skipped this whole exchange of words. If you look at the link to original post it has the source included so why wouldn't you include it in the original post?

So you found this program somewhere on the Internet maybe even on the link I provided because for whatever reason you didn't want to post the sources of the application (even tho the binaries were included with the original source code) you openly said you didn't make the program so then you say in another post to tell people to pm you if they want the source but then I asked you a simple a question why you didn't post the source to begin with not to mention credits to the author of the source.

Aside from you calling me a clown you tell me "its none of my business". It is my business & everyone else's we have no idea where this software came from if you don't tell us. For all we know it could proprietary software & you could be making people liable just because you want to feel special or gain some more likes.

I have no clue what you thought you would gain by having people pm you for a copy of the sources but whatever it was it sure seems extremely dishonest and shady.

Hopefully in the future you will make more wiser & honest decisions.

If I was scamming people I wouldn't be here. You see when my account was created? I said to pm me because I wanted to give more information to people or answer questions. What ever the case may be. As I said you don't have any business here.

Why not answer question inside this thread for those who need? Lets Imagine this thread could exists forever but not your account, so someday someone would like to ask a question but you're not around here then anymore? Those People might gonna stay in dark forever with questions that never has been answered. There is no need to require a pm, instead you could have answered his question inside this thread for those who might have the same question, also for you so you do not have to repeat your answer everytime. I am with @Steve Albert, he is totally right here.

I honestly don't care about this at all. Stop explaining crap because its falling on deaf ears. I also wanted to see who all is using it. I don't need to explain myself anyway, this thread now contains the source location thanks too Steve. An admin should close this thread.
