Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.
I've been playing with ClickOnce at work lately, and I like it, so I decided to publish HA! with it.

HA! really is the perfect application for it, since there are no external dependancies (other than .NET 2.0) and it doesn't care where you put it. I'll also be able to tap into the ClickOnce On-Demand API (which you can't do unless its running under ClickOnce) and pull down updates automatically in the background.

The project along with all the sourcecode, bug tracking, etc is all still hosted on Codeplex at http://www.heroicadventure.com but the publish site (since Codeplex still doesnt offer ClickOnce support) is http://www.ILoveVB.net/HA/publish.htm

Once you visit the publish page and install HA! you can just run it from your start menu and it will automatically check for updates when you run it and you'll always have the latest version (unless you choose not to update.)

Of course, automatic updates does kind of imply that I'll actually be updating HA! once in a while... no? Posted on Monday, June 16, 2008 8:54 AM Game Development , General Interest , Heroic Adventure! | Back to top
