Ineisis small problem Can't load Bin/Data.pak
I can build the client and the server using EE 2.0
I can run the server and client within the EE by clicking the play icon at the bottom
it seems to be working fine I built a wall etc.

So then I Publish the Server and Client which creates folders
_Publish_/Ineisis Server
_Publish_/Ineisis Client

Each has a .exe and a bin folder

If I try to run them I get an error
Can't load Bin/Data.pak

This game when in Publish mode was meant to be run using Launcher, please read the documentation:
http://www.esenthel.com/wiki/index.php?t...ding_Files
http://www.esenthel.com/wiki/index.php?t...plications

Once game is ready for publish:
you upload files to Server using Uploader
Download them using Launcher which runs the game

RE: Ineisis small problem Can't load Bin/Data.pak
I am reading the documentation Esenthel I wouldn't dream of posting without doing so, but it isn't very detailed, I don't have a windows server online I don't know how to set up FTP from 1 pc to another on my LAN.

Although Ineisis sounds quite interesting with player made hills and walls it is nothing like what I'm planning to develop, I thought it would be easy to get the source compile it and get a little client server thing going so me and a few friends could see what the game is like and perhaps get some ideas from it. But by the time I've got rid of the paypal stuff (I'm not charging my friends) done this launcher patching FTP thing.. its not worth the effort.

I'm going to go back to the mmo example I presume I can complie the MMO source using EE2.

No MMO code is not yet compatible with esenthel version 2 so please stay tuned until it's ported to this version grin

Hi nomax5

"I don't have a windows server online I don't know how to set up FTP from 1 pc to another on my LAN."


Okay so you got the client and server working
http://www.esenthel.com/community/showth...3#pid36753
That's pretty cool!

Setting up FTP is easy in comparison to what you have done so far.

Your ftp server doesn't go online, it's only LAN.


I don't have the Ineisis code... but I think the ftp thing is just a ftp server.

You need to set up FTP on your Pc2.
(My old home built PC which is winXP 4gb 8600GT graphics (Server))


Looks like filezilla has a windows ftp server:
http://filezilla-project.org/download.php?type=server

Install it, set it up (usename/password/path to where v2 is, use the standard port 21, allow access in the firewall - better to just disable it at the start) and running it.

You'll need the IP address of this server as this is your FTP Host name
http://www.esenthel.com/wiki/index.php?t...ding_Files

Run the C:\Esenthel 2.0\Bin\uploader.exe
Putting in the correct fields.

Alternatively, You could try using the collaborative feature on v2 to sync your PC1 and PC2(server) and run a release build.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3xACb-0tl5I
Check the wiki also.

You'll need to install v2 on PC2
Run the server on PC2

Again, not sure if any of the above will work, but I don't think setting up FTP on windows is a deal breaker.

cheers.

RE: Ineisis small problem Can't load Bin/Data.pak
Its the weekend I can do gaming stuff Yay !!

Thanks gwald for both your excellent post and your optimism.

Okay I went with the filezilla option because I'm after a development - Live server workflow not collaborative development setup... yet ;-)

Now presumed that filezilla was just another ftp client like the one I use to update my websites which is called WS_FTP but no it is filezilla Server, Server software which runs as a server service on windows machines.

So downloaded filezilla Server, installed it and set up users etc. following this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqkT95GJfKM

Then I set up an account in ws_ftp and logged on to the server using ws_ftp just like a regular website.

I'll post my progress here because others may be wanting to run a similar setup as mine below (I did a picture)

What did you use for the installer. I used the uploader but the installer.exe I'm kinda lost on that.
Thanks

Hi Palaxe I hope you are not asking me lol I don't know anything, I've got the FTP thing working but I don't have the knowledge to create a project to Upload.

But I am working on that now, I want to get a very simple multiplayer world up and running on the server, then use uploader and patcher so that when my friends log on to the world it does the client patching and downloads the necessary stuff so they can see my progress.

When I get it working I will do a post on how I did it though.
