I think you should type xdelta use in a DOS shell, it'll bring you the xdelta help, with all available commands

The above command assumes that the files for the old version (0.9.4) and the xdelta-file are in the same directory.
Otherwise, you would need to give the complete path of these files...

Thanks!

Thanks for this!

I was trying to figure out how to update to 0.9.6, and I really just needed a concrete example of the process to point me in the right direction. I think information like this should be added to the FAQ!

Agreed. I think some explanations on this matter (even if very short) would be useful.

Okay, there are a bunch of threads and tutorials on getting the game to work. If you want it, most systems have a binary package already available for them if you click download at the top of the webpage. You really should provide more information if you want some help. Also, if you are the same person, you should use the same name, at least within the same thread (even if you are a guest).

Thanks for this HaJo. I'm pretty new to all this and am running the latest version (I think) thanks to your
info.

Thanks again.

On the subject of xdelta....

Where is the xdelta binary located? Is it somewhere in the source tree? I could not find it under the "utilities" folder, and it does not look like it comes with the windows binary release...

(I am stuck using my mobile Sprint 3G internet with the stupid 5 gigabyte monthly cap... using xdeltas could greatly reduce my bandwidth when updating my 1.8-beta series release files...)

Thank you,

-Forgen

UPDATE 12/26/2009 - Hmm, how did I miss this on google before? http://xdelta.org/ I imagine this is what I was looking for...
