Responding to the public's need, the Windows nightly service has been extended
to deliver "upgrade" functionality through rsync
In that way, you can update your Oolite-Trunk installation to the latest nightly release,
getting the differences only.
Since rsync is not delivered with Windows, you can try cwRsync client
(To be honest with the community, I have only tested the service with cwRsync.)
Having installed cwRsync, you can execute the following in a command prompt:
For 64bit Oolite-Trunk Windows installations:
C:\>"c:\Program Files (x86)\cwRsync\bin\rsync.exe" -rlvz --progress rsync://terrastorage.no-ip.info/oolite-trunk-windows_x64/* /cygdrive/c/Oolite-Trunk/.
For 32bit Oolite-Trunk Windows installations:
C:\>"c:\Program Files (x86)\cwRsync\bin\rsync.exe" -rlvz --progress rsync://terrastorage.no-ip.info/oolite-trunk-windows/* /cygdrive/c/Oolite-Trunk/.
c:\Program Files (x86)\cwRsync\bin\rsync.exe
should be changed according
to your installation paths. For example
If your Oolite-Trunk path contains spaces, do not use quotes.
Hint: There is a
in the root installation folder of cwrsync.
Edit this and add the following line at the end of the file:
Oolite nightly 64bit
"C:\Program Files (x86)\cwRsync\bin\rsync" -rlvz --progress rsync://terrastorage.dyndns.info/oolite-trunk-windows_x64/* /cygdrive/c/Oolite-Trunk/.
Oolite nightly 32bit
"C:\Program Files (x86)\cwRsync\bin\rsync" -rlvz --progress rsync://terrastorage.dyndns.info/oolite-trunk-windows/* /cygdrive/c/Oolite-Trunk/.
If Windows is 32bit (and you have kept the original cwrsync installation) then you need to change the rsync path removing
the " (x86)" form the path. There is a space before the left parenthesis that needs to be removed too.
This line of code also assumes default installation path for Oolite nightly too... change it as per your needs... keeping the
Create a shortcut of
wherever is handy for you and you are now one double-click away from
getting the latest nightly!
(Cudos to AC for pointing this out!)
Having just set up the 1.85 nightly on my Win7 system, it took some hunting to track down these details.. any chance you could add them to the OP please, another_commander?
