This release brings you the ability to download and install custom content (Maps and associated packages) directly from a redirect server. So if you don't want to do this in-game or are one of the unfortunate souls who get timed out when they are downloading in-game when the server changes map, then this is for you!

Download

Version 1.2

Uninstall Previous Version

If you have the previous version installed, please uninstall it via your control panel > add remove programs > RO2 Cache Extractor


Installation

Afer downloading, extract contents of the zip file to a folder on your local pc and right click setup.exe and Run as Administrator. If you do not install as administrator, you will need to run the exe manually as administrator each time you use it or the downloader tab will NOT work.

The setup will place an icon on your desktop.


Configuration

When you run the application, it should be able to detect where your RO2 MyGame folder paths are. If not, please browse to these folders manually using the browse buttons (...).

These folders must be set to the relevant folders in My Games like this:

C:\Users\YOURUSER\Documents\My Games\RedOrchestra2\ROGame\Cache

C:\Users\YOURUSER\Documents\My Games\RedOrchestra2\ROGame\Published\CookedPC


If the cache and/or published\CookedPC folders do not exist, please create them.


Maps, Packages, and Mutators

These three tabs will allow you to extract files from your cache which were stored after downloading content from servers in-game. These files when extracted will be moved to the relevant folder under Published\CookedPC and then get deleted from your cache folder/ini file.


Downloads

This tab allows you to download custom content (community made maps and their associated packages) directly from community shared redirects. It is up to the redirect owners to ensure the downloads are scanned for viruses and you, the end user, understand the risk of downloading these files. As with the cache files, these downloaded files will be installed directly into the appropriate folders under Published\CookedPC.


Server Admins / Redirect Owners

If you would like to share your redirect files with users of this tool, that would be fantastic. Please send me a private message with the name of the redirect (display purposes only) and a url to your redirect. You will then need to setup a file called files.txt like the example below before it will appear in this tool and work correctly:

The format of each line in files.txt should be like this: Map/Package/Mutator name|file1|file2|file3

So my files.txt file is this: Map ColdSteel B2|TE-Coldsteel_b2.upk|ENV_Coldsteel_factory.upk|Env_DR_Brick_walls.upk|Env_DR_corrugated_plates.upk|Env_DR_floor_parts.upk|ENV_DR_Misc.upk

Map Arad2 B1|TE-Arad2_Beta_One.upk

Map Ogledow B9|TE-Ogledow_B9.upk|Props_Ogledow.upk

Map DieBresche B2|TE-DieBresche-B2.upk|Props_DieBresche.upk|Props_W_DieBresche.upk

Map Provkhoy B2|TE-Provkhoy_b2.upk|Props_Provkhoy.upk

Map Butovo B4|TE-Butovo-B4.upk|Props_Butovo.upk

Mutator Antilag|Antilag.u


So when somebody selects your redirect, it will display something like this:

The more redirects we have, the better chance people have a getting a download. This tool will definately timeout users if too many people are connected, so the more redirects the better ;)

Important

Please note that files.txt and all the filenames within that file are CaSe SenSiTIve. To avoid cockups, copy and paste the filenames in ;)

Thanks

Thanks to Ducky for testing the first version and Cat_in_da_Hat for getting this tool known in the community and for his redirect use.


If you are dubious about installing anything like this, then don't :)

Now if you all download it and try it, it's bound to go bang and time every out lol
