Update Reminder please!

PostFri Sep 09, 2016 7:14 am

Hi all,

I thought FFoR was self updating. I don't seem to have the latest version and was wondering if anyone can remind me how to get the latest updates please.

It doesn't self update, but when you launch it a dialogue box opens up that asks if you want to check for updates, click yes (always) if no updates are available it opens FFoR, if they are then it asks if you want to download the new updates

Many thanks Mike,

I've seen that dialog box before, but it doesn't always open. Other forum posters seem to have the new Falcon B in their army listings but I don't see that option on my FFoR application.

You can turn it off. I don't know if you can turn it on again from the program.

But the settings are in the file UpdateConfiguration.xml.

It should look like this
Code: Select all
<object-stream>
  <updateConfiguration>
    <appFile>Update-FFoR.xml</appFile>
    <frequency>ALWAYS</frequency>
    <prompt>true</prompt>
    <runJar>DzC-FFoR.jar</runJar>
    <runClass>com.desertphoenix.dzc.forces.client.FFoRMainApp</runClass>
  </updateConfiguration>
</object-stream>

Yep, what he said above. Bad oversight on my part to not allow this - I ported the updater over from one of my previous projects, and it never meshed perfectly with FFoR. I'll try and get a fix out for it with the next patch.

Thanks for this. I'm guessing if I've turned it off, it may be best to just re-install the application. What do you think? Will I lose my saved army lists?

If you reinstall over the same place, you won't lose your lists.

Return to FFoR
