It was not what I meant.
I wanted the downloader to download the file to a directory instead of its own directory.

First of all I apologise for the late reply,

It works again :D
But is mme going to look on the thread any time soon? Have some unanswered questions .)


Been travelling, but here I am ;)

I've spent all day signing up to crappy hosting services that are full of limits and junk or won't work. Your website refuses to allow things like Google Doc hotlinks because the URL is too long or it won't accept anything without .exe on the end. My program will grow bigger, 8MB is just bleh. While I understand you can't offer anything higher, I think for most people this will be an issue and make the cloud service far more useless when it comes to patching the actual EXE.


What you can do is either use something like dropbox or http://easy-upload.nl/ (in dutch but with 50MB per file) Or sign up to a free web host and use that to store your files. I am sorry but I cannot increase this limit.

I have tried the "local file" option on the website, but I don't quite understand that function, and if I change it it can't download...
Can you help out? :)


I have sent you a PM


Server unavailable? :o


I can't see the site either...
Server problems?


I have no problem viewing the site, however my updater has told me in the past 3 days "Server Unavailable"


does everyones updaters work fine?

this is mine: [** ESET SMART SECURITY THREAT REMOVED **] <= Eset detected your screen-shot as a threat.


I have not seen any problems recently. After looking through the cloud logs there has been a slight drop of traffic for the 15th of FEB however I cannot see any problems that could have contributed.
What I have added is a message that will appear inside the updater if your package is not configured properly.

Was the website also down or just the 'Server unavailable' message in the updater?

Thanks,

- MD (mme)

This programme is super awesome!


--But I want to know, if I upload different named files, lets say I upload game_v25, then replace that with game_26, is anything annoying going to happen with the updater? Not that it makes a difference, it just makes life easier...

--Does the same thing happen if I do this with external file holding? Upload v_25, then v_26...You get the idea...

--However, does the Package name depend on what you replace?

Hope you answer those questions Thanks!

As long as the files are in the same package (the same API key) then it does not matter. However if you wish to replace for example game1.exe with game2.exe make sure you name game2.exe local name game1.exe.

Hope that helps,

I know, but I've found a glitch.
I waited for my game to update,when it started flashing white. Windows 7's sign of crashing. But it wasn't.
It was still going and it made the test.

EDIT : I LOVE THIS PROGRAM! I could save my other project!
Okay, little off topic but I has a program and something in the code stopped working. I couldn't find what it was.
With this, I could download the old version, (I always had a hidden source code file) and use it. This program is awesome!

Having a custom image isn't working, it only has it when its updating, not when its loading, even though I added a custom image on the loading bar thing.

Get a new API, or login to check your code. It lists the API, and the Package contents.

It also handles the downloading. You just need to have the exe file together with your game/launcher and then it opens that exe and downloads changed or missing files :)
I use this and it's just extraordinary. :D

When I put the API key into a GML script, it says Error: Symbol , or ) expected at the first letter in the API key.

Lastly, what event should I put it in? And should I only put the object into one room?

I am very confused... :wacko:

Please make sure the API key is put in quotes, look at the example for more information

Thank you very much, not a problem. Keep a lookout for another tool that I am working on ;)

Sorry about this, it should all be working again. The reason this happened was a server issue and has now been fixed.
