Full Custom Map Installer

25 posts in this topic

This is for temporary. I see most people have some trouble installing the maps due to a lot of things such as not understanding the structure of Renegade X folder, so I made this SFX installer to ease your burden. Unfortunately according to Goku's registry search, there is no registry that points to RenX Installation directory... If anyone can make a better installer that will direct people to the install dir immediately, it would be appreciated

Anyway, here is my installation, packed and converted with WinRAR into .exe file. It should be usable by everyone, with WinRAR or not

Apply patch according to version. Do so cumulatively

To anyone who doesn't install the Renegade X to default folder (C:/Program Files/Renegade X or C:/Program Files (x86)/Renegade X) here's a guide to get the installation right

1. Open the installer

2. You should notice this window here and a box with directory

3. Browse your RenX directory with the Browse... button. Then click OK

example : I installed in D:/Program Files (x86)/Renegade X, so I change the directory to

wckcbt.jpg

example 2 : I installed it in C:/AwesomeGame/FirstPersonShooter/The Renegade X, so I change this to :

Hope this installation works for you. See you on the WIP battlefield!

After a Holiday last week I got a great idea for a new map. It's almost done with the develop phase. I'm about to begin with the testing phase coming week. I hope I'll be ready with the map this week so I can upload it. I'm coming week again on holiday. And I hope that I get a fresh new idea for another map.

Anyway. Here are some photos of the map. The map is called CNC-River:

Careful with Static Decals like tank tread mud marks. Those have been bugged in the past where people should turn them off in options menu or it rekts your framerate.

I did this to announce it. and secondly Its a bit of a question. When I release the map I want to ask you to add it to the full custom map installer. And thirdly thats not a bad idea to create my own topic :P

So if I understand it correctly you'll handle the installer and map versions in it?

Yes unfortunately I can't make it so that the installer auto detects the RenX install path. You can go ahead and help me with it, but I already asked Goku

Dunno if Beta 5 has install path in registry though

Anyway, Patch 2.1 is here, forgot to share it

Who's actually updating the EKT custom map server?

Goku, because SilentKnight has the privilege but not the ability to do so

I have setup the official test server again today. All maps are in, latest version. Only the IRC bot remains.

Updated, but I believe this is not going to end well... The custom map pack is 900 MB big

Suggestions : All Mappers, please align your zipped maps with proper directories and make your own SFX installer with your zip application. This will ease the process for people who are still n00b at game technical systems

why not using simple Bat command? for example: 

@echo off

 echo This program will move entire folder into the ren x librery on C:
 
pause

robocopy "C:\CNC_CliffSide_v1.5\UDKGame" "C:\Program Files (x86)\Renegade X\UDKGame" /E /A /MOVE

pause

saving it as a .bat file and boom. all folders with it's content moved. just need to addjust the code a bit for to be suitable for all directories, but i can try to do that if you need.

-----updated post------

i made a better bat file so you can use it unpack directly to the ren x folder by just clicking the bat file. 

@echo off

 echo This program will move entire folder into the ren x librery on C:
 
pause
rem   for any problems contact kira at https://renegade-x.com or search google.

rem >>>>>First Method<<<<<<<<<

rem the undereneath line works
xcopy /y /e "%~dp0"\UDKGame "C:\Program Files (x86)\Renegade X\UDKGame"
 
 rem >>>>>>>>
 rem >>>>>>>>>
 rem >>>>>>second method to transfer the files, but the .bat file must be at the extract folder - "UDKGame"<<<
 rem to make it avaiable just delete the word "rem" ,add rem to the first method, save the file and click it.
 
 rem CD %~dp0
  rem robocopy "%CD%"  "C:\Program Files (x86)\Renegade X\UDKGame" /E 



rem     *rem- is a short for reminder, the meaning is to put comments in the code file. 
rem   for any problems contact kira at https://renegade-x.com
pause

just save it as unpacker.bat and put in same folder as the extracted UDKGame folder.

As I posted on the other thread as well, all the ZIP files that are used should be following the correct hierarchy and as such this bat file should not be needed, as the folders should literally be drag and drop.

I can already tell you that this batch file is gonna fail. 

@kira your batch file will only work if the folder actually is in :

C:\Program Files (x86)\Renegade X\UDKGame
