rsync-updater downloads the binaries for your current OS.

You will need to run the updater again on your other systems to get their binaries, but you won't need to download all of the main data again.

Yup. Just be careful about file permissions, though. If you move files from Windows to Mac OS or Linux, you might have to set the executables as executable to be able to run the game.

OK thank you I will try updating later.

I said yup to Mario's post. Sorry about that, I wasn't clear.

You can also use XONOTIC_INCLUDE_ALL to download the files for all operating systems instead of just your own. In mac OS, that means you should run this command:
Code:
XONOTIC_INCLUDE_ALL=true ./update-to-release.sh
instead of
Code:
./update-to-release.sh
It has to be run from the terminal.

The executable "problem" will only appear if you move files from windows to linux or mac, not the other way around. You set files to be executable through the files' properties, or using the chmod command in the console if you know about that.

Along with the cd command?

What do you mean? "cd" means "change directory". You need to cd into the xonotic/misc/tools/rsync-updater directory before running the command I put in my previous post, yes.

Yup, thats what CD means (in Terminal talk)
Right thank you for everything.
I didn't want to download 993mbs again because of my bad internet (it has a very bad bandwidth and it is the same internet mobile phones use) Which leads me on to my next question. The 0.7 Update came out so this is why I'm asking in the first place. Do you know how big it is to download it (Using rsync-updater)

And a good place to get information like this?

I have no idea. As far as I know that information wasn't recorded.

You can find out how much it will transfer by doing a rsync dry run, which will pretend to do the transfer but not actually do it. You can do that, but please be careful:

Edit the rsync updater, by adding to the last line a -nv, so that it becomes
Code:
rsync $options $excludes "$url" "$target" -nv
Then, run the script as I said above, with XONOTIC_INCLUDE_ALL etc. It will do a bunch of stuff and, at the end, give you the amount of data it would transfer (in bytes, you have to do the math to convert it) under "total size".

Just remove the -nv when you're done, and it won't be doing a dry run the next time you run the script. Please be careful if you edit the script.

OK thank you. I will report back when I do it (maybe after a few days)

I didn't end up checking the download size but it finished in 16 minutes on a 200kbs network, Without downloading 993mb All over again.

Thanks. (A moderator can close this thread now Smile )
