Why can't I use the Update Downloader on Windows Vista?

Because Vista is evil --Jedicommando 20:40, 7 December 2008 (UTC)
No, no, no... ignore Jedicommando. The real reason that you can't use it on Vista is that God hates you. Flark 02:53, 13 December 2008 (UTC)

Be sure to combine the files into an .exe when you release it! I HATE having to do it myself. --Jedicommando 20:40, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

No. Just compile it yourself, you Windblows user. --SquidMan 01:13, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

why would you make a windows program when you expect people to compile it with linux? why cant you just compile it yourself? you took all that time programming the thing, i would at least think youd want people to use it without going and learning how to compile programs.--Cert 07:16, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

I don't care what you compile it with. Also, I don't really care if anyone uses it, I'm not in it for the credit (although I do like it). If you think it is worth using, you should know how to compile things. Also, it is NOT a Windblows application. It is a PC application, which means Linux, Mac, or Windblows. So anyone can run it. Also, I didn't include an executable because I'm pretty sure it wouldn't work universally and don't want to deal with support. tl;dr version: Do it yourself, if you can use it, you can compile it.

Would you mind if someone else compiled it and shared the executable? Flark 02:53, 13 December 2008 (UTC)
Yes, that'd be perfectly fine. Just make sure you say that I am completely not responsible for it. =) --SquidMan 05:24, 13 December 2008 (UTC)


I cant compile this app. Not under MinGW, CygWin, Native Linux! I get following warnings/errors:

gcc -c -Wall -O2 aes.c -o aes.o
gcc -c -Wall -O2 main.c -o main.o

Version 2.1 fixes this problem. Thanks =D --SquidMan 01:13, 9 December 2008 (UTC)


Man why don't you just make a dol app and you'll make our lives easier (Previous unsigned comment was made by Rafalfaro 18)

2 reasons:
  • It can't be a DOL, it is a PC app.
  • I think anyone who wants to use this knows how to type make in a terminal window.
Kthx --SquidMan 04:25, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
it can so be a dol. i had something like this as a dol for wii, but to tell it what you wanted to get, you had to edit the source. so pointless for what this guy wants.yossi 04:51, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
Heh, well then you have to write an alternative for wget. Which in it self would probably kinda diffcult, so that would be a moot point =P --SquidMan 02:14, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

"gets Titles"?

Please to explain what a "Title" is in this context? Thanks. Fartboy 02:51, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Ummm, a title. I can't explain it without going really in depth. Look around on here, there is lots of information about titles here =P --SquidMan 04:31, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Package suggestion

On your next release I would suggest putting the files into a directory. So when you extract them they don't go into the current directory. --Sycophantic 03:21, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Oh sorry about that. Didn't mean to tarbomb everyone =P Next release will definitely have them in a directory. --SquidMan 04:31, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

2.1 does not compile

I dont know maybe i do something wrong but if i type make it results in:

gcc -c -Wall -02 aes.c -o aes.o
make: gcc: Command not found
make: *** [aes.o] Error 127

as i looked in to the folder there was no aes.o --THREE Consoles 03:36, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

It means you don't have gcc. If you are using Linux, just use a package manager to get it, if using Windblows, use Cygwin, and make sure to install gcc, and if using Mac OS X, get the XCode toolset. Have fun =) --SquidMan 07:54, 14 December 2008 (UTC)

Many THX --THREE Consoles 05:33, 15 December 2008 (UTC)

What's the point?

What's the point of this exactly? Won't it still download the fakesigns and stuff? Or can you edit it so it won't? Please Clarify. --Cyndaquil 01:34, 15 December 2008 (UTC)
