Ok this guide works 100%, tested myself. -> credits to me <-

Lets first of all get ourselfs an good ftp server.

i recommended to use FileZilla FTP.
Download:

Now go install the server, make the ftp dir: C:\ftproot
Connect to your server using the FileZilla FTP admin tool.
Make a new user.
Username: anonymous.
Password: Disabled/Blank.

Ok now we ofcourse want the launcher to extract the patches so go to Settings -> Filetransfer Compressions.
Now turn on MODE Z Support.
And turn off: Exclude IP ranges.
Ok that's it for the ftp server, now the important part is your Version.ini at the dir where loginserver is located.


This is mine:

Code:
[DOWNLOAD]
URL=myip
PATH=./


[ODBC]
DSN=KN_online
UID=*****
PWD=*****
TABLE=VERSION

[CONFIGURATION]
DEFAULT_PATH=C:\ftproot\

[SERVER_LIST]
COUNT=1
SERVER_00=myip
NAME_00=DeathWish Ko

your ini would be;

Code:
[DOWNLOAD]
URL=external ip <- http://whatismyip.com
PATH=./


[ODBC]
DSN=KN_online
UID=knight <- default
PWD=knight <- default
TABLE=VERSION

[CONFIGURATION]
DEFAULT_PATH=C:\ftproot\

[SERVER_LIST]
COUNT=1
SERVER_00=external ip <- http://whatismyip.com
NAME_00=Server Name

Ok now we start with the database part,
open up the table: VERSION.
and pase this inside:

Code:
Version   FileName                CompName(??)     Previous Version
1299      patch1299.zip         patch1299.zip               1298
1300      patch1300.zip         patch1300.zip              1299
Make an patch1300.zip and put it in C:\ftproot.
Woah! your still not done, if you for example want to add a file called: test.txt into the clients data folder then first:
1. make an map called *Data* in the archive,
2. Put test.txt in there.

If you did everything right in FileZilla FTP, the launcher should now download & extract your patches.

I hope this helped.

Go to C:\ and make a new folder. Call it ftproot.

Press Admin. Go to Edit->Users. High-light anonymous. If the password box is ticked, untick it. Then press ok.

BTW, thx for the guide.

Wrong again.

Its a component present in XP Professional, though you have to install it from the disk.
Its there, just an optional component - IIS.

Also, for the record, FileZilla is a buggy FTP server. Couldn't maintain a 24/7 stability compared to Microsoft FTP, on our own server environment. :/
