Updating 6 06 to 6 10
Language: You can use this drop down menu to select What language folder to download updates to (only default will show unless you have language folders in your eq2 directory) Quick scan: If checked it will skip the file scan if no new database is available. (you should only need this is very rare circumstances) Log Updates to EQ2MAP_logfile.txt:when this set it keeps a record of what files were updated and new files that were downloaded, it includes a time stamp and keeps adding to the file "EQ2MAP_logfile.txt" which is located in the directory you installed the updater (usually C:\Program Files\EQ2MAP Updater) You can use the Show button to open the log file in your default text viewer.
This is split up into different sections and the main subsetions of each are underlined and in bold.Hopefully this will make it easier to find what you are looking for.-------------------- This Keeps your EQ2MAP mod up to date, when ever new zones or points of interest are submitted on the EQ2MAP Website, this will update them for you automaticly.A previous installation of EQ2MAP is not necessary however using this program in a directory that has EQ2MAP already installed should work as well.You can see all the maps and points that this mod currently has at the EQ2MAP Website -------------------- The Microsoft .-Options now displays Testserver as a Language , was an error in code that prevented that. -Added a Quick Scan option, if there is no new database there is no need to scan the files. - Changed the Options window -- Added Cancel button. Now the Shortcut Test Server icon works again - Added some more status info. - The window will now change its size if you are runing non-standard dpi. - Added a cache for the database to reduce server load. -Added Drop down boxes for switching between diffent UI folders (it will update the eq2as well) and also for switching between languages.
-If you set a Launch File 2 , the checkbox was not enabled until you re-open Options window. -BETA RELEASE ONLY -Made a new installation selector to make it easyer to find a EQ2 installation. Now UI Modders can specify what files the Updater should not update. A missing file will still be downloaded even if its on the Ignore List. This option is only active when using auto Update not manual Update. -Fixed an error that repeated map downloads caused by localization. - Fixed a bug that reported an error even if it did work when retrying to download a file. -Fixed the testserver option so it actually launches Test EQ2-Added an option for File overwrite notification (currently only for but it can be added for files as needed) -Made it show the UI directory being and language patched -Error handling for unknown exceptions to help track down unusual bugs.
If you just delete the eq2file and run the updater it will create a new one for you that is set up properly. - Found and fixed the "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" error. This existed before however the only way to do it previously was by manually adding an new entry in the updaters config file. -Fixed a bug that on very rare occasions caused the updater to not close when it should.
--------------------- -Changed Testserver working directory, was set to wrong path. (Thanx for the debug help "Ripper-Joe") - Fixed a error that prevented you from launching Testserver from commandline option /testserver. - Changed the delay until a file timesout to 15 sec. - INTERNAL RELEASE ONLY - Converted the source to VB 2005. -Made a seperate window for all the options -Added ability to auto-launch a second program as well as EQ2 (usefull for those who use combat stats) -Window is resizeable for people running at non-standard DPI -Added Overall progress bar w/ % -Added # of files left to download -Added Amount Downloaded/Total Status in KB/MB -Added text to show the path to the everquest directory, as well as the exe files that it autolaunches -Added browse buttons for changing all the paths to files/directory -Added suport for the language folders I think its working well, but if there are any bugs please let me know, i couldnt really test it that well.
- 2 new command line arguments added: /testserver and /setupdatefolder read thier description in the command line arguments section - I have attempted to fix the crashing bug a few people were having since since version 0.95e. Callback(Int Ptr h Wnd, Int32 msg, Int Ptr wparam, Int Ptr lparam)Failed to save settings: An error occurred loading a configuration file: Unable to open file 'C:\Users\Edward Lowrey\App Data\Local\EQ2MAP_Updater\EQ2MAP_Updater.exe_Url_h0faajajzvayx4vbi4aay yo1waybioah\126.96.36.199\user.config' for writing because it is read-only or hidden.
Anyone who was having this problem please let me know if this update fixes it or not. Verba has confirmed that it has fixed the issue for him, so hopefully it will be fixed for the others experiencing this problem - Updater now detects your eq2 directory the first time it is run and ask you to verify that it is correct and gives you the option to change it if it is not. (C:\Users\Edward Lowrey\App Data\Local\EQ2MAP_Updater\EQ2MAP_Updater.exe_Url_h0faajajzvayx4vbi4aay yo1waybioah\188.8.131.52\user.config)I just have to mention this because it bugs me. but if he's UP, he's wandering that area stealthed.
