ok i will list the features i am open to sujestions and i am willing to modify it to individual requests but if you think i have missed something major or it would be cool to have something then please tell me
1)It will download an install data file this contains all the locations of the files that need to be downloaded and when the campaign was last updated it also contains a few other things needed by the program.
2)It will check with your currently installed version (if you have one) and compare what is on the install data file and if there is a difference in last update date then it will goto the next stage.
3)3 different install options
A)Basic Install (You could set this to basic components only like ships/interface and missions)
B)Full Install (This would usually be everything that is for the campaign like the basic install + music etc but this is obvious i think)
C)Custom Install (choose the components that you want to download for instance you accidently lost the table files and dont want to have to download the whole thing again or you downloaded the basic install last time and now u want to upgrade to full you can choose the components that you were missing)
4)It can be changed to any colour scheme at the momment i use black background and lime text to give it the technical feel but you could have it set to pink with yellow text if you felt that way inclinded lol)
5)It will but does not yet feature resumable downloads, i will put this in only if i have enough time to sit down and code a few hundred lines of text. If someone really wants it then i will do it.
6)Monitor how many times each file is downloaded. I.e setup a script download script to monitor how many times the files are downloaded you can have this set to general where it will see how many times the install data file is downloaded or specific where it will monitor all the files
7)It is not so much a feature of this program but another program i am going to make to accompany it and that is a program that will automatically generate the install data files so that you can spend your time doing what you want.
If you feel the program could do with some other features then please tell me and also if anyone knows ahow to get rid of and aching little finger and index finger then please post that 2 - Avenger
