Prohibit Update.

Post by Katalas » 11 Jun 2010, 16:16

Hi,

I dunno if it's good category, sorry for that.

This is my problem : I'm developping a themanaworld server but i don't want to update my client.
How to disable updates ? Or how to connect to another update FTP ? (Like my website ?)

Thanx,

Starting the client with the command line parameter -u will skip the updating. But to be able to play you have to give the client a source for the content files.

One way to do this is to put them in a local directory and point the client to this directory using the -d command line parameter.

You can also configure your server to point the client to a different URL to download the updates from, but unfortunately I don't know how to configure this.

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.

The updates are just for world data. The client itself doesn't get updated this way.
