In this guide I'm going to cover the basics of setting up an installer/patcher for your client files.
You're probably wondering what's the point of this? Well, if you have followed my guide on how to edit
WZ files you probably want other people to see them too. Therefore, the easiest way to do that would be to
make a patcher aka. an installer for your custom files and allow people to download it. Let's get started.


# REQUIREMENTS

- Smart Install Maker
- Edited v.55 WZ files and your launcher (MyName.exe)
- Hard drive space, I suppose?


# 1 - Managing your files

: Make a folder in your MapleStory folder and call it ''patch'' or such.
: In the folder you made place all the files you want your patcher to install


# 2 - Customizing and building your patcher

: Open up Smart Install Maker
: Now I will go through all options


- General -

Code:
Product name: MyStory Client
Version: *the version you're on*
Company name: *your company name*
Title text: %ProductName% %ProductVersion% Patcher
Copyright text: Copyright

If you put them into the patcher, and the user install it to his/her MapleStory folder, they are shared, lol. :)

Wow... This is so close to what I need its not even funny. What I need is the ones that compare the newer files to the original and send ONLY the difference between the files so theyre small and take less time.

You call this a patcher? If you say its an installer thats fine.
This is nothing more than a software to create an executable installer by packing all the installation files (such as the .wz). Similiarly its like downloading the whole thing.
A patcher would be modifying the .wz file instead of downloading the whole thing, thus the term patch. Not a recommended method.
