Test client ?

Post by nemerle » Tue Apr 22, 2008 3:07 pm

So, you've compiled the source, created DBs now what ?
You need the Client software of course.

For those of us that aren't in the know, can you be a little more specific with the "how-to's". As directed I loaded up original game discs and installed the patch. The next logical step for me is to run the update but upon doing so it wants to download the update. Any help?

The release version isn't quite ready yet, so I'll hold off on the instructions to setup the client, unless Nemerle wants an influx of IPs randomly connecting to him :)

What happens if you can't apply the patch? When I run the patch, I point it to my city of heroes client and it tells me it cannot update because CityOfHeroes.exe is an unknown version.

We can easily verify your version by checking the registries. Go to the start menu and hit "Run..." Type in "regedit" Open up HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Cryptic > CoH
On the right side there should be an abundance of strings, one of which is "CurrentVersion".. tell me what that value is :P.

I've tried it with client 3.20040909.12 and the newest which is 16.20080122.10T4.

Well version 16 will definitely not work haha. I'm not sure which version Nemerle's mystery archive is but I do know it's dated 4/8/2004.. so whatever client your using might be a bit newer, as issue 3 was released a bit later. You'll probably need to use the exact archive Nemerle has specified in the topic post :/.

Do you guys recommend any torrent sites because all the ones I used to go to have been shut down or suck now and I can't seem to have any luck finding an older installer filer or even one that works for that matter >>
