This has been posted already, but I believe it is best if it gets its own announcement:
Nightly trunk binaries for the Windows port of Oolite are now available from the GitHub Oolite Nightly Releases repository
: Trunk builds represent the cutting edge in Oolite development. There are no guarantees about their functionality and they are produced for testing purposes only. People wishing to just play the game are advised to donwload the current official releases instead. The above builds utilize Diziet Sma's modified installer script and can co-exist peacefully with the standard game installations.
The script producing the builds runs every night at 02:00 UTC (03:00 CET).
You can also use our rsync service to sunchronize old trunk installations you may have with the latest and greatest dev version, by following the instructions kindly provided by Getafix:
Responding to the public's need, the Windows nightly service has been extended
to deliver "upgrade" functionality through rsync
In that way, you can update your Oolite-Trunk installation to the latest nightly release,
getting the differences only.
Since rsync is not delivered with Windows, you can try cwRsync client
(To be honest with the community, I have only tested the service with cwRsync.)
Having installed cwRsync, you can execute the following in a command prompt:
For 64bit Oolite-Trunk Windows installations:
C:\>"c:\Program Files (x86)\cwRsync\bin\rsync.exe" -rlvz --progress rsync://terrastorage.no-ip.info/oolite-trunk-windows_x64/* /cygdrive/c/Oolite-Trunk/.
For 32bit Oolite-Trunk Windows installations:
C:\>"c:\Program Files (x86)\cwRsync\bin\rsync.exe" -rlvz --progress rsync://terrastorage.no-ip.info/oolite-trunk-windows/* /cygdrive/c/Oolite-Trunk/.
c:\Program Files (x86)\cwRsync\bin\rsync.exe
should be changed according
to your installation paths. For example
If your Oolite-Trunk path contains spaces, do not use quotes.
Hint: There is a
in the root installation folder of cwrsync.
Edit this and add the following line at the end of the file:
Oolite nightly 64bit
"C:\Program Files (x86)\cwRsync\bin\rsync" -rlvz --progress rsync://terrastorage.dyndns.info/oolite-trunk-windows_x64/* /cygdrive/c/Oolite-Trunk/.
Oolite nightly 32bit
"C:\Program Files (x86)\cwRsync\bin\rsync" -rlvz --progress rsync://terrastorage.dyndns.info/oolite-trunk-windows/* /cygdrive/c/Oolite-Trunk/.
If Windows is 32bit (and you have kept the original cwrsync installation) then you need to change the rsync path removing
the " (x86)" form the path. There is a space before the left parenthesis that needs to be removed too.
This line of code also assumes default installation path for Oolite nightly too... change it as per your needs... keeping the
Create a shortcut of
wherever is handy for you and you are now one double-click away from
getting the latest nightly!
(Cudos to AC for pointing this out!)
Edit 11 Nov, 2013: Nightly builds are up and running again and the primary target is now Windows 64-bit.
Edit 23 Oct, 2016: Added rsync instructions as per Diziet Sma's suggestion.
Edit 25 May, 2017: Updated nightlies location to the github one,
