Pinned Auto-updates on August 18th and 24th break Launcher - how to fix it (by updating manually)

  • Auto-updates on August 18th and 24th break Launcher - how to fix it (by updating manually)

    Unfortunately we're having trouble with the auto update mechanism of our Launcher: It didn't support different executables for Windows and Linux, so the (.net/mono) Launchpad.exe you'll get from the update is for Windows, not Linux (CnC-Launcher runs Launchpad.exe via integrated mono).

    Anyway, we fixed this problem with version 0.4.4 of our Launcher, so in the future updates should work on both Linux and Windows.

    But for now you'll have to update the Launcher manually (this will still work if you already updated it with the internal update function).
    Fortunately, this is easy: Just download cnc-updates.cattleandcrops.com…0.1/CattleAndCrops.tar.gz
    and unpack it in the same folder you unpacked the Launcher before, so it overwrites the old Launcher.

    Afterwards you can run ./CnC-Launcher like before, and from there Launch (and maybe update) the game.

    This means that you will not have to re-download the whole game.

    UPDATE (August 24th): Turns out, the update fix last time didn't fix all the issues and again you'll have to update the Launcher manually ||
    The procedure stays the same as described here, and the official Launcher download now contains the fixed, updated launcher.


    Sorry for the inconvenience, I'm confident that next time it'll almost certainly work ;)

    How to do the update in the Terminal

    cd /path/to/CattleAndCrops (the directory CnC-Launcher is in)
    wget http://cnc-updates.cattleandcrops.com/installer/0.1/CattleAndCrops.tar.gz (downloads the updated launcher)
    tar --strip-components=1 -xzf CattleAndCrops.tar.gz (unpacks the updated launcher directly into this folder)
    ./CnC-Launcher (make sure the window title says something about version 0.4.4.x)
    rm CattleAndCrops.tar.gz (remove CattleAndCrops.tar.gz, it's not needed anymore)
