What is AOPS?
AOPS (Advanced Online Patching System) is a highly developed, professional patching system built into Game Launcher Creator V2. It’s very simple to setup and you can update your game development and push out the update by just uploading a trigger file and the directory.
AOPS works by allowing you to scan your game directory, it will store a checksum for each file. You then upload the scan file, which contains a listing of the files, upload your game directory structure to your webserver and then attach the patch configuration file to your game launcher.
Your users can then check at any time if there is an update available, GLC will download the list file and compare each of their files (checksums) against your latest available on your webserver. If any differ, it will download and patch the files.
Who is AOPS for?
AOPS is for Game Developers. Whether Indie or Professional, AOPS is and does exactly what it says on the tin. It allows you to give real-time patching (or auto-patching) to your users installs without them having to download the entire package everytime.
By comparing checksums, GLC will be able to tell if a file needs patching, or a new file is available that needs installing and will handle the entire process for you.
How do I get AOPS?
