At last, the patcher / installer program you need is here!

Recommended Posts

Ok guys. I've worked really hard on this: The Infuzor Installing and Patching System is now available for purchase in the MyDreamRPG store! With Infuzor you have an all in one Installer & Updater application. Infuzor is written to be completely crossplatform.It will run on Windows, Linux and Mac and should be able to run on anything running Java 1.5 or above. It's primary purpose is to aid in the distribution and update of games. However it can be used, for any situation where you would like an easy to use installer and updater solution like keeping your entire development team up to date! Infuzor is a highly customized and automated subversion client application. Subversion (a form of version control)* is a fantastic way to perform installs and updates since it only pushes changes, so if you only changed 3 lines in a 1000 line file, it only pushes those 3 lines of changes to the client and it does this regardless of if the file were text or binary. Because of this you should easily see big savings in bandwidth over other installer and updater solutions. In fact compared to rsync, ftp or even bittorrent updater solutions you might see as much as 500% savings. Infuzor is also highly customizable, and uses *.cfg files which are just plain text you can quickly edit in a plain text editor The primary configuration file is Infuzor.cfg This file can contain any one or more of the follwing variables: - Name (Username to repo it will prompt the user if not present) - Password (Password to repo) - EULAAccepted (set this to true if you do not have an End User License agreement you would like people to accept) - WindowTitle (Use this to change the title at the top of the window) - repoURL (This is the fully qualified url of your repository) - EULA (This is the URL to your current EULA) In addition there are OS specific configuration files to handle platform specifics. The OS.cfg files override anything in the Infuzor.cfg file as well However an OS.cfg file is not autogenerated for you at first run, unlike the Infuzor.cfg which is. Here are some variables that belong in an os specific .cfg file for instance "Windows XP.cfg" or "Linux.cfg": - WorkingDirectory (Where to download the application to or where the application is present) - appName (What application to launch after the update is complete) One final thing about all the config files; any, all or none of the variables may be present in your config file they are all optional, however if present they ARE case sensitive so please use caution when editing config files by hand. The app will have ongoing support of course. Thanks for reading this and I hope many of you find it useful! I've already gotten some great encouragement. Here's where you can get it!

Java for the loss. Are you coming out with a Windows version?
