    WaW Auto Updater

    What this does is install the WaW maps for you so you don't have to download and extract them yourself each time.

    You must run it with admin rights!

    Download Link

    Instructions:

    1. Download WawUpdater.zip from the link above.
    2. Extract the WawUpdater folder from the zip to somewhere on your hard drive.
    3. Double click WawUpdater.exe.
    4. Login with username "public"
    5. It will ask for a second login if this was the first time you used it.
    6. Wait while it downloads the files.
    7. Click Start FH2 to start the game, or use your normal shortcut.

    If you have Vista or Windows 7, you may need to run it as administrator.

    If you used the allied updater last campaign, this is a new version and you must download it again, you can delete the old one. This time it has logins for both sides, and if the divstaff decide to use the updater they'll give you login info for your side when the campaign starts. The "public" login is for things between campaigns like the map test today.


    Pictures for those who can't read:

    1. Install


    2. Login


    3. Wait


    4. Play

    Re: WaW Auto Updater (ready for maptest)

    So, I tested this now.

    I don't really like that it automatically starts FH2 once the updater is finished.
    Some people start FH2 with various parameters (windowed, resolution, autologin to BF2 account).
    Some may want to install the maps but not start the game yet. Especially since they shouldn't join the battle until they are called in on TS.

    It would also be good if on the last window "Files are at Version X" it would list the file names and links of the maps it just downloaded and installed.
    This would make it easier to check that the maps have been set up correctly on the admin page.

    It's a good tool but those improvements would make it more useable.

    Re: WaW Auto Updater (ready for maptest)

    I've updated it for Scrim 1.

    Re: WaW Auto Updater (ready for maptest)

    It doesn't automatically start the game, it just has a button to do so at the end. You can just close it and start the game normally.

    But showing the files it has, I'll do that. (Edit: done)

    Also if anyone's getting an error saying 2025869790 477050656, that means you don't have .NET framework 3.5 or greater. This is normally a windows update but some people don't get it. There's nothing I can do to fix it automatically, but you can download the .NET framework here.

    Re: WaW Auto Updater (ready for maptest)

    Ah, I see.
    Must have clicked "Start FH" without noticing the first time.

    I see you've added a list of the maps once it's finished.
    Could you make it display the file name while it's downloading?

    What does the version number actually mean? "Your WaW Files are at Version 12"

    Yeah, just done that.

    It's just a number that goes up every time you change the configuration. So the updater can know quickly if it needs to check the file list again.

    Re: WaW Auto Updater (ready for maptest)

    If you close the updater while it's downloading and then start it again, it thinks you've already got the newest version even though you don't.

    It would also be cool if it could display the file names of the maps it's going to download before the actual download process starts.
    That way you can check to make sure it's going to download the right files and don't have to wait for the first download to finish to see the second filename.

    When it lists "files installed" at the end, it writes all the filenames into one line instead of a new line for each file.
