This is a discussion on vb6 patcher UPDATE 2.5 (Now with md5 checking) within the FlyFF Releases forums, part of the Flyff category; Current Version 2.5.0 / 2.4.0 minimized Flyffmd5gen.exe instructions **************************** simply place in your patch folder and click the button it ...
Current Version 2.5.0 / 2.4.0 minimized
simply place in your patch folder and click the button
it reads the patch.ini and generates the md5 sum for all the files you added to it
-added md5 checking(i found a public module to check md5 sum)
-added server tool to create a list of md5 sums for all your files)
-doesn't need to re patch already downloaded files
-added support to change the banner/window title text
-custom launching of neuz file now permitted
-ability to hide "Extra Config" button
-patch via patch.ini located on server
-working progress bars
-editing of server,registration page, and patch location
This is a very simple patcher ive been deloping in vb6,
The neuzz.ini is the config file - not much to explain
it requires a file on your server named patch.ini with a structure like this
"num" is how many total files you haveCode:[update] num=8 1=NeuzUnique.exe 2=neuz.bat 3=data.res 4=dataSub1.res 5=dataSub2.res 6=mss32.dll 7=mssmp3.asi 8=NeuzD.dll
one problem I'm working on is it has to re download EVERY file every time it is executed
its a work in progress
i plan on adding:
-way to change backrounds(easy)
-way to change title(easy) -FIXED
-fix "options" window(harder than it sounds)
-add more stability(easy but will take time)
-find a method to check if the file allready exists, and is EXACTLY the same (md5 maybe?) (easy enough)
suggestions and comments please

Im just wondering what this patcher makes better than the standard one?
It looks the same to me.
Remove the server name.
advertisement... remove the server name from the patcher.. or just blur it...
Art is like masturbation. It is selfish and introverted and done for you and you alone. Design is like sex.
There is someone else involved, their needs are just as important as your own, and if everything goes right, both parties are happy in the end.
You do your best work if you do a job that makes you happy.
You don't become great by trying to be great. You become great by wanting to do something, and then doing it so hard that you become great in the process.
ah geez, advertisement, advertisement, seriously, let it be there, who cares?
He made the patch then ofcourse he should get some credits, or do what the hell he wants with it..
Well, since you 2 wrote "Advert.." then you also checked into his / her website too, well. arent you 2 stupid one lol...
well, I did not like the patcher because it looks exacly the same as the current one flyff uses, just with some extra buttons on the top, which looks ugly as hell..
good luck on your next update though ;)
to all those who complained about the "ads"
first off i feel i can put "ads" in MY own code
but i was feeling nice, I've added support to change the Banner/Window Title

you can now choose what file to launch in the config
Dude, what you are doing now is amazing, just ignore that kind of people that....
no dont ignore, Be Proud!
People that say stuff like that is only afraid of you and your server ;)
But, If you may...
Ive seen not alot, but many posts of people requesting of small patches..
so I will make this request to you,
Are you able to make a patcher that does not look like flyff's current, and make it smaller? ^^
Like, only the news window and the start / downloading file bar :p
With ofcourse a little space somewhere there you can put up your flyff's name ^^
and yes i could easly make the type of patcher your request
i can proably have it done in about an hour
i'll release it and let the community judge
surprisingly it only took me about 10 minutes to do as you requested
and it looks quite good if i do say so myself
download at top: patcher 2.4 minimized.rar
Wait so is this like something that won't require us to use Titanium?
Except that you will only increase your server load by using this, I don't see anything about compression. Useless project tbh, why don't you just improve upon the current patcher, or at least write it with an up to date managed language(vb.net for example z-z).
I press the start button and nothing happens.
