View Full Version : From Vanilla to 4.312

Apr-06-2014, 15:30
Any chance to have (in future) a single patch from vanilla to the latest TF release ?
I'm just wondering because I'm forced to try to install again the whole game due to the (unsolved) launcher crash so having a "single-download-click-install" would be appreciated. Thanks in advance for your dedication.

Nothing right now but I know that is on the list.

Never found out what that crash was huh?

Negative, I tried almost everything without success. Let's see if re-installing will help solving this issue or not.

I'd like to second this request. I was helping a friend setup Clod for the first time today and it was quite a pain to go through all the patches. I feel like it would be pretty intimidating for some people. Not all gamers are super computer savvy, and those of us who are still don't mind an easier way.

We all would like that boys. BUT there is a problem. A certain number of files (created when the game is launched) is required for the next patch, so on, so on. Once that problem can be overcome maybe there is a solution. Belive me when i say TF is aware of that and willing to work out a solution. When they find one they will implement. So far, our job as users, has been the hard work of downloading and double clicking a EXE file :)

Of course this is not a big issue, just a suggestion for the future ;)

A good idea this, I second that!
It's good to hear it's in the pipeline!

Looking at il-2'46 history see that - a unique patch - was never possible...


The only thing I ask is for TF standardize patch's names, every they came with slight different one (no real deal) - on picture are renamed.

Ok understand the problem.
Thinking to computer noobs isnt it possible to create a sort of mega patch that will just automatize the 4 patches in a row ? A kind of *.bat file or a macro like some windows softs do ?
And to group the 4 patches in a big file thus a new comer will just have to DL 1 file then clic a single time.

Thinking .bat, I would think it's perfectly possible to write one that runs the installer, starts the game, kills the process (if it would be enough without starting a mission), deletes cache, runs next patch and so on. Myself I think clicking on the .exes four times is easier than writing that and accounting for all problems that could happen.

Like Lolsav wrote, I see having to run the game in between as the greatest problem for an unified install.

In old il-2 it wasn't much different. Install forgotten battles and patch it up to 4.12 (or whatever it is now) with all the expansions. Before 1946 came out it was a pain to do a complete reinstall... aep, pf, pe-2, patches...

I think steam auto-updates spolied us :)

We need understand that this is not practical: join all patch's - even for individual install latter - in a big 2.2+ GB file.
It's only complicated the download - and probable will need divide the file in parts with the complication to join then after.
Just add possibility of complications occur on the process.

TF is not a publisher, so need find a place for host these files.

Us, as players need to collaborate and make the "sacrifice" to install - and test - patch by patch. Is part of the "game". :thumbsup:

Of course as "gammer's", have the right to complain. :)
