As the lead developer of this project, I've been pulling my hair out trying to decide if we really needed a launcher for our game. Considering we will be updating Project Explore a few times a week, it seems like a launcher would make updating easier. A lot easier... So I spent the last 8 hours creating a launcher! It's completed already and working 100%. With a built in auto update system, development will go a LOT faster.
As you can see above, the launcher provides you with the current rate of download, the total size of the update, the percentage of completion, and the total amount of data downloaded so far.
The best part of this system is that we don't have to host the files or use a torrent as originally planned. The file is available off of a separate server that will be able to provide the necessary bandwidth for the downloads. Not using a torrent means that downloading the game will be safe, and easy!
That's it for today's update! Thanks for keeping up with us!
