Web updater fails telling there's no support

#1 Post by leonardodna » Wed Sep 13, 2017 9:38 pm

Hello! I'm trying to use the "web updater" feature, but every time I try to make it work I got this error:

Code: Select all

Either this project does not support updating, or the update status file was deleted.
I thought it could be a problem on my current VN so I started a new project and followed those steps:

- Added the current link on navigation screen:

Code: Select all

textbutton _("Check updates") action updater.Update('http://downloads.lewdbit.studio/test-updater/updates.json', force=True)
- Added the build config on options.rpy:

Code: Select all

build.include_update = True
- Made a 1.0 build.

- Edited the start label with new text

- Bumped version to 2.0

- Made a 2.0 build

And the error still persists. Am I missing something in this process? You guys can check the update files and 1.0 and 2.0 builds here:

Your host probably can't support this feature. Try using a server or host that supports more than DDL.

(is this your website or just somewhere that is hosting your files?)

It's my website and I can use zsync without problems, at least on the command line:

Code: Select all

$ zsync http://downloads.lewdbit.studio/test-updater/test-updater-2.0-mac.zsync
#################### 100.0% 0.0 kBps DONE

Read test-updater-2.0-mac.update. Target 97.1% complete.      **************
downloading from http://downloads.lewdbit.studio/test-updater/test-updater-2.0-mac.update.gz:
#################### 100.0% 118.3 kBps DONE

Macs do not support the updater. Blame Apple, but thanks to signing requirments the mac apps are now read only.
