Mohenjo Daro's Updater Tutorial: Make a New Version


Recommended Posts

Download the updater from here: [http://www.mediafire.com/file/q5r41ey4wp97i32/Updater.rar](http://www.mediafire.com/file/q5r41ey4wp97i32/Updater.rar)

To make your Version.Rar or Version.Zip, copy the root folder (my root folder is Eclipse Renewal for this tut).
Next you need to go through each folder and delete any file that was not changed in this update. If no items in a folder were changed then delete the folder.

Example:
Let's say I edited 2 tilesets (11 and 19) for my update, and I didn't edit anything else.

I copy the root folder (Eclips Renewal)

Delete all files and folders that had no changes, and compress them into your version rar or zip.

The name of the Version.rar/zip doesn't matter, it just helps keep them organized if you name them which version it is (eg. version 1.7.4.zip). Make sure that when uploading, you do not override a previous version: the updater needs all previous updates to work properly.

The updater will download the file and name it the version number from the thread, this will keep them in order for installation, but also means that the name online doesn't matter.

Once you have the new version file compressed and uploaded to your file host, you need to add the new version to your version history thread.

There is a plugin on the site called Canned Responses that you should use to add you version. To add a response to Canned

Go to your profile and click Canned Responses. Click "Add New Response" and title it "Version History". For the Response text, add "Version: #.#.#: [DOWNLOAD](link url)" (without the quotes).

When added your version to your thread, you will see a button

Clicking it will bring up a menu that will allow you to insert the version history response. Just replace the #.#.# with your version number and replace the "link url" with the download url.
