Auto Patcher / Auto Updater for Online Games
Version Compatibility: Visual Basic 6
This Auto Patcher / Updater can is a stand alone app that I designed to plug into any online game you create. Only 6 lines of code need to be modifed/tweaked and 2 lines of coded added to your game and you're in business. The Auto-Patcher will download from any web site you specify and update any files you have modified since players have downloaded your game (maps, graphics, and anything else). Auto Patcher uses any web server you can upload to thus saving your game servers bandwidth if your connection isn't a big one.
NOTE: You must read the install_notes.txt file in order to configure this application to work with your online games.
