ECO Patch New Downloader

As what the title says, this application is just a download helper for eco’s patch files. It looks similar to the previous post, but with some added functions. Now the program can handle editing the upsv.lst and running nginx for you.

Note: This program requires .NET Framework 4.0

ECO Japan Manual Update

I’m not talking about an official manual patch. Instead, I just wrote how to update the Emil Chronicle Online client manually -yes, literally manually. This guide is only appropriate to you if:

  • You have a very slow/unstable connection so that you cannot finish a big update.
  • You have tried updating many times without success.
  • You are patient enough to read and follow this guide (which I bet most of you are not).
  • You don’t have any other choice left.

If you’re wondering why should you choose this way to update, one thing that is almost guaranteed is that you don’t need to repeat the update from the beginning every time you fail, since you’ll download the files manually. You can use any download manager to pause and continue every time you want.

Update (22 Aug 2013): Step 3 up to 9 can be replaced by using the application I posted here.

The big idea is to redirect the patch server into your own computer (localhost) so the launcher would request update from your own computer. To do this you need a web server. OK, for those who do not understand, you can forget this paragraph and continue.

There are many walkthroughs out there, so I won’t be writing another one. Instead, I will tell some tips which I considered will come in handy.

Pusher with FuelPHP

Pusher API Debug Page

Using Pusher with native PHP is relatively easy. But using it with a PHP Framework can be a little bit confusing, since it needs some additional work. Up to this date, there’s no Pusher PHP Library which is designed to work directly with FuelPHP. It just takes minutes to set up, though.

TortoiseHg Directory Lock

Today I’m just happened to start coding again after a long hiatus. And suddenly, tortoisehg is stuck and hg gave me “waiting for lock” message when I try to commit. I’m using tortoisehg 2. Here is the workaround I found:

Delete the

.hg/wlock

file in your working directory.

It works, although I don’t know whether it’s safe or not.
