update client?
it would be cool with a update client for Esenthel engine!
like you open up a program, and it would automaticly check for newer version, and ask if you want to update!

it would be so easy, rather than downloading and install manually grin

Re: update client?
Hm, maybe it's a good idea, but isn't it too complicated? wink

Edit:
If installer would also install new engine in Visual Studio, then it makes sense for me. smile

Hmmmm... what should I put to my signature? Any ideas?

checking server for a new version, downloading, and setting up folders, shouldnt be a verry complicated task... i think :/

Re: update client?
the most difficult would be adding support for .rar files (automatically extracting from them)
then detecting visual studio installation path (this should be easier)
the rest is just copying files which would be simple

the idea is good of course, and I'll probably implement it, but right now I'm working on increasing shader loading speed (I'm on good tracks on doing that smile )
