Nightly Builds (Full Installer)
« on: October 16, 2011, 04:07:18 pm »
There are nightly builds in our snapshots dir

download

There is also a binary-only package available. Use this only if you know what you are doing - as a player you should just use the above linked full-installer.

----
These installers are rebuilt each night - the build-system behind it will also build the final release installers. So testing and reporting problems is very welcome.

Could you clarify what you mean by "Use the update utility in your startmenu to get the latest nightly"? I don't see any option either in the Windows startmenu, the game folder, or the game itself. Is there any way to update? I find myself having to download the full installer.

The Updater is impossible. It took me an hour and half to download ~1GB and install the game. But it takes almost twice as that to update the game! Since I run the updater I cannot minimize, close or have get anyfeedback on what happens since it seem to be stuck on loop of 100MB download, extract, apply wipe info  repeat.

The amount of downloaded info(I probably downloaded at least 1GB in updates) and time is ridicules. I am not sure how you do it, but cumulative updates are far better option than whatever this is.

The "problem"  is the old main installer (1.5 years)
and the "frozen" GUI is intentional

btw.
a cumulative update would be much much bigger
Im using a Multilevel incremental strategy

I need to build a new main installer and the problem is fixed

I meant merging all updates up until now into one cumulative update, but a new main installer will work just as well, thanks.

Hi, I used to play the 2.3 version and now I wanted to give a try to the 2.4 version. I'm using windows 7 x64.

I downloaded this: Data Data version 2.4 (?937 MB)

I unzipped the file to find that there is no exe file.

Today I found there is a 1.1GB version which is .exe

I'm not at home now, I can download that version when I get home, but I wanted to know if I can use the files I downloaded just to patch my 2.3 version, so I dont need to redownload the game. If that is possible, will I lose my old campaign? will I be able to play my campaign in 2.3 and the a new campaign in 2.4? will I be able to play the old campaign just in 2.4?

Thank you!

No. But you can install 2.4 in a seperate folder next to the 2.3 version. Just do not mix them.

... will I be able to play the old campaign just in 2.4? ...

No, the saves from 2.3 cannot be used in 2.4.

Thanks for the prompt answer Shiplt

Ok, so I dont know what I downloaded, some "data version" which I cant use and Ill delete if I dont need it. I'll download the full installer when I get home

should I download this 1.1 exe  posted here http://ufoai.org/forum/index.php/topic,6302.0.html
Or this 968.7 mb exe downloadable from http://sourceforge.net/projects/ufoai/files/ or http://sourceforge.net/projects/ufoai/files/UFO_AI%202.x/2.4/ ??

Thanks again

Ryoga

Just select the installer from the first section (Stable) of our Download Page.

Lately the update goes straight green, without doing any kind of update.  I've looked at the commits, and the build bot, and it seems like some kind of revision should be in order.  But, the updater just says 'finally after...' and doesn't do anything.

  Am I missing something?
