Nightly Updater
« on: July 08, 2015, 09:05:45 pm »
I started to build a tool for those of us that like to stay up to date with the latest nightly releases.

It is still in alpha mode, but here is what I have left to do:

1. Data Retrieval
     A. Retrieve list of nightly zip files
     B. Retrieve description of nightly zip files

2. Display
     A. Display nightly versions
     B. Display description of nightly version when selected

3. Functionality
     A. Download File
     B. Provide Backup option of current installed version
     C. Install Nightly
     D. Include Settings for Proxy

4. GUI
     A. Look and feel

Version 1.0 (Available for Download) See below  :) I need testers

Worked on the GUI. It now displays the available nightlies and the description that follows it.

See first post for image update.

Very close to being complete.

I have it downloading, backing up, and updating the core files.  ;D

I am going to make a change to the listview (has some quirks I don't like), but in its current state, it is FULLY functional.

First suggestion: Make it opensource and put it on GitHub. 8)

My only question... is it actually easier than just unzipping the nightly into the openxcom folder?

Integrate this with OXC in 1.1 and have it check online automatically.

And require another DLL? The horror! :P

We can give you an API if you prefer so you don't have to page-scrape the website.

I don't personally care much for auto-update, I don't mind doing it by hand, but well... OpenTTD has it, so, just saying... ;D
