    I would really love to start packaging Nighty Builds of our progress. My community keeps asking for them and rather then doing the pain of zipping it all from scratch each night be nice to actually provide an updater.exe I have a web server I control the whole lot. Just wondering if there was ever a community made updater.

    There is a patch script, but even that script only provides for offline-patches, it just reduces the size of those patch download.


    The RPGM's are not intended for online functions, and the few scripts wich add minimal online functions so far are not capable of updating a project.

    Ahh thanks. I really need to learn how to pack the game and send it to others. I find for 10mb at most worth of data it packs 200mbs worth so I guess It includes all the sounds etc.

    If you're including the RTP then yes that would add an extra 200 MB to your distribution.
