    Cataclysm Launcher Version 1.1


    The main purpose of this launcher is to distribute custom patches and/or automatically set the realm-list for a WoW private server.





    Requirements: Visual Studio 2012 / 2012 Express Edition


    Steps To Configure:

    1. Launch CataLauncher.sln
    2. Right click on the project (which is in the solution explorer) and go to Properties.
    3. Go to the Settings Tab
    4. Change the settings to match your server configuration
      • realmlist = set realmlist realm.yourserver.com
      • server = realm.yourserver.com
      • patchDownloadURL = http://www.example.com/patches.txt
      • port = your realm port (usually 3724)
      • WebsiteUrl = Url of your website (Leave empty to not show button)
      • ForumsUrl = Url of your forums (Leave empty to not show button)
      • VoteUrl = Url to Vote (Leave empty to not show button)
      • DonateUrl = Url to donate (Leave empty to not show button)
    5. Build
    6. Distribute CataLauncher\bin\Debug\Launcher.exe to users


    Optional:
    In order for the launcher to download the patches, you will need to create a text file with the name of the patches, the location (http://example.com/patch-D.MPQ), and the MD5 hashes of the patches. I have included another application which will create this text file for you. You will need to upload this text file, as well as the patches to your web server.



    • Load Patches File = The .txt file that the patch details will be saved to, e.g. patches.txt
    • Patch File = The file of the patch that will be downloaded
    • MD5 Hash = Automatically filled in based on "Patch File"
    • Patch Url = Url to the "Patch File"


    Note: In order to have patches update from the launcher, you must update the MD5 hashes of the patch files in patches.txt (or whatever you named it), as well as the patch files themselves.

    Im starting to get pissed. Been trying to make a server all day and I come across this. I build the exe but don't do the patch thing and it patches my game at works at first but the next time I open it nothing happens. I don't know wtf a MD5 hash is and I don't know how to upload files to my web server. I also don't know what patch files you are talking about. Right not every time I open wow, it goes to retail.

    Hmmmm...

    Hi, my name is Morph. I'm the Server Owner of Asylum WoW, a growing RP server that has a strong player base. I'm new at these types of things, but I am most definitely willing to learn. I've never done this stuff before, but I think I'm getting pretty far for a random guy who just downloaded these programs. I published the launcher and got it to start, but it's not injecting the patch that I'm testing. I used the other program and I got the md5 and everything, even saved that patch file to the text. I think that the only things I'm doing wrong are A: I'm entering in a Patch URL that won't work in the 'Distribute Patches' program, and B: I'm entering in the wrong PatchDownloader url in Visual C#. I would appreciate any help from any individual that can lend me a hand. I would just like to add, that I'm sure you get a lot of noobs that ask you to do all of this for them and they're only making a private server for them and their three friends. I wanted to make this clear, that this is not just for me to utilize for my own personal gain, I truly desire advanced growth on my server. I am legit, here are some pictures of the obvious mistakes I am making:

    I have the realmlist and the other thing covered because it's my ip. ^

    It will not work with FileBeam. It must be a direct link to the file.
