    Question map updater...


    i took VB in school last year so i only know a little bit about it, but i want an auto map updater for 2 games...

    1) ill upload the maps to a online directory or ftp server (different directories for each game since the maps are different)
    2) i want 2 check boxes (so the user can pick either 1 or both of the games to update the maps for)
    3) i want 2 fields: one for 1st game map folder on their comp (prefer a BROWSE button thing) and second field for 2nd game map folder on their comp (prefer a BROWSE button thing)
    4) User clicks UPDATE button and it updates the maps

    i want it to download the maps that arent in their game map directories for each of the games... is this possible in VB? anyone wanna help me out?

    Thanks!

    Yes this is possible through VB. VB has capable enough ftp controls.

    As far as getting help, if you are looking for someone to build this for you, you might want to post in the Help Wanted forum here on Devshed.

    If you want to tackel this yourself, I have some ftp functions that make use of the wininet.dll for windows machines.
