As I promised you in another thread, I've realized a downloader for Windows... But, because I am a Linux user, I realized it for working also on my favourite os :)
Before you use it, I have some things to say.
For runnning this application, you need two things:
- Java JRE v. 1.6 . You can find it here. This is necessary.
- wget, as this downloader uses it as downloader.
If you are a windows user, you can find it here, but I have included it in the zipped file.
If you are a Linux user, it should be already installed and already in your path. If not, install it.
2. Guide to use
- Download the zipped file here and unzip it. NOTE: you need to leave inalterated the directory structure, or the application won't work and you will need to download it again.
- Open the directory created.
If you are a windows user, you have to launch JGoGDownloader.exe
If you are a linux user, you need to make executable the JGoGDownloader.sh file, and then launch it through the terminal.
- Login, wait for the list of your game, then chose one to download by typing the corrispctive number. The downloader will downlod first the setup files, than the additional content, then the dvd covers, taken from the forum. At the end of the download, you will find all this things in the "downloads" directory. Note again that you have to leave inalterated the directory structure. WARNING: don't give anyone the "datas" directory, because it contains personal informations.
3. Help me to improve it
I haven't had a lot of time for testing it, so let me know if you find some problem using it. Contact me through this thread, specify your os and in which fase of the use of the downloader you was when the error occured. I hope there are not too many error... Better, I hope there are not errors.
4. Why a Linux user should use it?
Well, as my script works well, also thanks to the contribute of some GoG users, for now, you, Linux users, do not need to use this new application. But in future, I want to make a GUI for this application, and also improve it by adding some new functionalities, like multiple downloads and version checking. So stay tuned also on this thread.
5. Mac users
Now the downloader should work also for you :) Launch it with the JGoGDownloader.app launcher :)
This application is distribuited under WTFPL license.
Edit: if someone of you has problem with corrupteed files, read here
Edit 2: GUI realized
Edit 3: thanks to xyem, you can now grab the downloader also here :)
