HSFX Auto Updater
« on: August 19, 2012, 10:38:59 AM »

ONLY USE THE AUTO-UPDATER WITH HSFX 7.0 Updated with 4.12.2.

--------------------
We are implementing a new way of getting HSFX patches out to you. At the moment it is just for small patches to HSFX, between major versions. In the future
we will be looking at releasing major versions this way.

To use the Auto Updater you need to be on Version 7.0 of HSFX Updated to 4.12.2.
A BETA patch, 7.0.1 is currently available via the Auto Updater. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


HSFX Auto Updater program

This program automatically updates your HSFX installation with the latest files. This is a small C++ program, that when run, checks on the HSFX master
server for a list of HSFX files and their MD-5 checksums and compares them with your IL-2 files. If there is a difference in the MD-5 checksums, the updater
downloads the new files to your computer and copies them to the correct folders and overwrites the old files.

First it runs jsgme and automatically de-activates all active mods, then downloads and installs the new files, then runs jsgme. You then must activate the
mods you want to use. At a minimum you must activate HSFX history.

When you are notified that there is an update available, you must run HSFX_Client_Updater.exe for the personal PC version or
HSFX_Server_Updater.exe for the server version, that are in your IL2 root game folder.

You will need the installation program described below to install this.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Auto Updater installation program

This program installs the Auto Updater. It is a 5.5 Mb. download.

It's named - HSFX_Auto_Updater.EXE. It's available at the link below.

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/26976891/HSFX_Auto_Updater.EXE

This program installs the Auto Updater executable onto your PC and updates the .INI file it uses, with the path to your IL-2 game folder. It is crucial
that you install the Auto Updater into your IL-2 game folder, which is the Folder where your il2fb.exe is. It cannot work any where else.

This installer will install either the personal PC version or the On-line Server edition.

Included in the installer is the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86). This package needs to be run to install the support files
required by Visual C++. (It is possible that this has already been loaded when you installed another program, in which case you get the message
- A newer version of Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable was found was found on the computer. In this case, you don't need to install the runtimes.)

You will have to add the Auto Updater to your start menu, or create a desktop link to run it in the future.

If you have more than one installation, you must install the Auto Updater in each of the installations.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DO NOT USE THE AUTO-UPDATER WITH  HSFX 6.0 . You can downlaod the Patch 6.1 and an all inclusive 6.11 to 6.17 installer patch. Check 242sqn.com for details

It alters the sationary.ini slightly.

But it de-activates jsgme first, so anything you have in your Mods folder or any new additions that you have added to  jsgmemods will not be effected.

We have to be able to alter those files if we add new content or correct probelms with them. The best way to add your own content therefore is to create an STD folder in Mods which this will not effect.

Are you using Tiger Sounds ?.
The FM's in TS UV3 will override the FM corrections the installer makes (and this effects the B25's, it is an incorrect FM engine referance error that causes those pink cockpits). 

(I have  forwarded the corrections to Bertrand for Tiger sounds this evening so with luck it own't be long until he incorporates them also.)

Note:-  20-08-2012
There is a small error with the updater for the server version.  If you need to install and use that version :-

When installing HSFX_Server_Updater.exe in the server game root, it incorrectly installs a file called HSFX_Client_Updater.ini.
Rename this to HSFX_Server_Updater.ini before running HSFX_Server_Updater.exe and it solves the problem and works ok.

Edit :- Updater the installer with a new version that automaticaly gets this correct,redownload if you need the server version and you want one that you don't have to edit.

Installed the new update. Question : what has been altered in the stationnary.ini file ? because I have to desactivate mine to load the game. If not, game crashes between 90 and 100 %...
