Title: OUTDATED - MWLL 0.7.1 plus Crysis Wars Trial 1.5 Combined Installer - Release
Post by: Gouty on January 23, 2013, 10:05:00 AM
This installer is outdated!

Latest MWLL and install guide available here (http://clanjadewolf.net/mwll/)

Official forum thread. (http://forum.mechlivinglegends.net/index.php/topic,20738.0.html)


CJW still best clan.

Everything below the line kept for posterity


Ladies and Gentlemen, for you consideration, Gouty and Haarp (but don't let that put you off) are proud to present

MWLL 0.7.1 plus Crysis Wars Trial 1.5 Combined Installer
Version 1.1

Or as we've come to call it:

MWLL GOuTY Edition

What this does:
* if you use a random value you will only be able to join servers that do not check for a valid Crysis Wars key

This allows new players to get started in MWLL with a single download, and a single install.  Hopefully eliminating many prospective players first hurdle to getting into MWLL.

Good initiative! I appreciate your guys' hard work, even if HAARP can be a stuck-up jerkhole (sorry HAARP! ;D).

Any thought on the redistributables that are required? Or are they a small worry on most's systems/something to look into a later Installer release?

Also, how big is this file? EDIT: Thanks Spooky. ;)

@Gouty: couldn't you just include the 64-bit binaries as well? By copying them from an existing installation. That's what you had to do with the Steam version of the old Crysis as well for example.

Yeah, as Spooky said, just shy of 6GB, we slimmed it down by removing Crysis Wars intro videos, maps etc. (so no CW multiplayer) and then used some rather extreme compression

The reason we didn't bundle the 64bit binaries is we are trying to keep this above board - i.e. the trial is free and does not come with 64-bit, we'd have to extract them from a purchased version of the game.

As for redistributables, the fanatastic MWLL launcher handles that on first run.

Why do you disable 64 bit mode? When running MWLL in 32 bit it will run out of memory and crash quite frequently.

It's not disabled, it's just that the Trial package of Crysis Wars does not have the 64-bit binaries in it.

Also even when you run the 32-bit version under a 64-bit Operating System, it is very unlikely to run out of memory (except when severe memory leaks are involved, or other reasons for high memory consumption, like with the infamous C8 bug on vehicles). The 32-bit executable of Crysis Wars is large address aware and thus can allocate up to 4GiB of virtual memory. While MWLL might go over the 2GiB barrier of 32-bit Operating Systems sometimes, it is unlikely to go over 4GiB.

Does not? It probably won't if you don't patch it to the 1.5 version (http://www.crytekfiles.com/files/CrysisWarsPatches/CrysisWars_patch5.exe), 64bit support was added in a later patch. ;)
(To clarify, Crysis Wars Trial doesn't comes updated to the latest version, its the equivalent of a retail one)

Don't forget to include it, or MWLL might not run because of an outdated Crysis Wars.

I also highly recommend running the game in 64bit mode. In XP x86 I suffer enough already sometimes (only happens in longer playing sessions though). :P

Post by: Gouty on January 24, 2013, 12:23:38 PM
I went to play MWLL last night and realised that due to some testing I had been doing I did not have MWLL or Crysis Wars installed!  It took about 10 mins to do so with the installer (due to the massive compression) but I was able to get straight in, create a profile from MWLL and start playing.

Does not? It probably won't if you don't patch it to the 1.5 version (http://www.crytekfiles.com/files/CrysisWarsPatches/CrysisWars_patch5.exe), 64bit support was added in a later patch. ;)
It is Crysis Wars Trial patched to 1.5 (See the thread title!) and 64 bit is not included as part of that patch.  However, I have since heard rumour that some purchased versions of Wars did not come with 64-bit binaries (probably the Steam Version) and if this was made available officially by Crytek as a separate patch, we may include it in the installer.

After some quick research though, I cannot find a 64 bit patch from Crytek, only ones that had been extracted from working versions that were shared.  If anybody else finds anything, please let me know.

All retail versions of the game do not have the 64-bit binaries included. They were added through a patch later. And as Str1ker said, the latest (well actually already the very first) patch should include the 64-bit binaries as well. Since I always only use the Steam version myself (which comes with the 64-bit binaries), I haven't observed this in detail though.

I did saw it, and the logical conclusion I came upon was that you guys thought Crysis Wars Trial was already patched to the 1.5 version, which would explain why the 64bit binaries weren't there. The 1.5 patch does include them. The problems of the game not coming with 64bit binaries was just related to the Steam version, which that I know Crytek didn't addressed with a separate patch.

Yeah Spooky, the first patch was the one to add the 64bit binaries. I simply stated 1.5 because its a cumulative patch already. :)


Major strikethrough. Like, I don't have a Bin64 folder either! And my game was installed from a retail copy + patch 1.5... So, where's the problem here? The game detected I had a X86 OS system? I don't remember hearing problems about X64 binaries not being included in my Crysis Wars days.

Yeah, that's exactly what happened. The Bin64 folder only appears if the installer is running on an x86 operating system.

Double post, but nevermind.

Just added instructions to the first post

  • Download MWLL-0.7+CW.zip from here (http://cjw.dyndns.biz/mwll/MWLL-0.7+CW.zip)
  • Extract the files to a folder (double click the zip and press "extract all files")
  • Ensure that the three .bin files are in the same folder as the .exe
  • Run the MWLL+CW_setup.exe

Also made a readme (http://dl.dropbox.com/u/11428913/readme.txt) because I got bored (will include in the next .zip bundle that I'll probably make with 0.7.1)

Blah. Only at 47% due to rainy weather. It's not going to finish by tomorrow.

You probably won't need my feedback by the time I actually manage to get all of it, but I'll still download it eventually since it's for my woman's computer, and she doesn't have a copy of Crysis Wars/MWLL on it.

Thanks for your work on this guys.

Damn. I installed 0.7.0 earlier today and now I have to post my observations before I can go to bed.


Populates the InstallDir in the relevant part of the registry

That part didn't work for me. I installed Wars in a non-default directory and the MWLL installer didn't pick it up. Using Windows 7 64b.

I used ProcessMonitor and tracked down the error: the MWLL installer queried for HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Crytek\Crysis Wars\InstallDir, but the registry key the MWLL+CW installer set up was named HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Wow6432Node\Crytek\Crysis Wars\InstallDir.

What's happening here is that Windows is managing that Wow6432Node stuff by itself. It doesn't need to be added to the query in the installer script, and I guess that's what happened.

I downloaded Inno Setup to test that hypothesis (that's what you're using, right?). I manually set the correct value for HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Crytek\Crysis Wars\InstallDir. The MWLL installer picked it up. I used the following code in an Inno script and it also read the correct value. Windows did the translation automatically.

Code: [Select]
  if RegQueryStringValue(HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, 'SOFTWARE\Crytek\Crysis Wars', 'InstallDir', InstallDir)
    then MsgBox('InstallDir: ' + InstallDir, mbInformation, MB_OK);


Made it so the uninstaller removes the InstallDIR value from the registry

Did not test it, but it will likely needs to be fixed too :).


Creates a blank profile without having to load up Crysis Wars first

This is just to nitpick, but the attributes.xml included in that default profile contains a bunch of settings, among other things. Probably harmless but I don't know how Crysis would react if a computer didn't support the configured resolution (it can be pretty stupid with malformed profiles...). Anyway, that file can safely be stripped down to:
Code: [Select]
<Attributes Version="8">
 <Attr name="Activated" value="1"/>
</Attributes>



Changed the wording of the installer info to emphasise that Crysis Wars does not include maps

That wording seemed quite weird for me — installing a non-functional program? There must be a better way to put it.

That's how the installer info was displayed to me:

Quote
WARNING

This will install a non-functional* trial version of Crysis Wars

*It has had the Crysis Wars maps removed to save space



Be excellent to each other

An important information needs scrolling to be visible, and the asterisk relegating the maps explanation at the end of the text looks weird.

Here is a suggestion for some modifications:

I'm not sure the wording itself has been improved much, I'm no native English speaker, but I believe it improves the presentation of information in the text.

Wow!  That is some great feedback right there!

Thanks for that, and I'll be sure to make those changes for the 0.7.1 release.

You are correct with your assertion, I am using Inno (which I am new to) I didn't think it would be intelligent enough to know to populate the Wow6432Node on a 64bit OS by default! so I used "Check: IsWin64" at the end of the registry parts

I'll take out the unnecessary parts from the profile XML, I didn't know how much I could remove.

I'm looking forward to hearing your ideas for a solution to the key issue.  At the moment we are running a .bat that creates the random value (kindly assisted by TrollerLover in its creation).  Inno Setup does have some useful features (e.g. only update the registry value if it does not already exist) but in order to generate the random number or run the .bat if a certain part of the registry does not already exist you have to use the "Code" section which is written in Pascal (which I am not versed in whatsoever!)  useful site http://www.jrsoftware.org/isfaq.php#difffiles

As for the wording of the information, you are right, it does need rephrasing, English is my first language, but unfortunately I am still crap at it!  I'll give it some more thought this evening when I make the 0.7.1 installer.

Oh, by the way!  If you are are versed in Inno and know how to get around the silly "2,100,000,000 bytes" limit before you have to start disk spanning, then please let me know!

Thanks again

Well, that was exactly my idea, although I don't know Pascal any more than you do. Or at least I didn't 24 hours ago... hence the "I hope I'll have the time to finish it" part.

Right now, I have written a script for a one-page setup that can read and write the key to the registry.
I still have to write the functions to make sure the key is well formatted, generate one if needed, plus a bunch of error checks... And I'm pretty sure I will run into some UI issues as well.

By the way, I have to choose which page that custom page will follow during the installation procedure. I don't remember what was the order exactly, but I think right after the "Warning - fan created installer" page would be a good place. That would correspond to the InfoBeforeFile directive, right? What do you think?


Oh, by the way!  If you are are versed in Inno and know how to get around the silly "2,100,000,000 bytes" limit before you have to start disk spanning, then please let me know!

As I said, I installed Inno yesterday, and I am still in the process of learning Pascal syntax... so "well versed", not really. But that limit is not unique to Inno, other installers have it too for compatibility reasons.

Hm, isn't that limit supposed to be gone with Inno Setup 4.0.0-pre1 (2003-04-18)?

Not really, it seems that limit was for the entire installation. Here's the quote from that version's changelog:
Quote
The 2 GB limitation is gone; the total size of an installation's files can now be up to 2^63 bytes (that's over 8,000,000,000 gigabytes) or thereabouts. Individual files can also be this large, but note that FAT and FAT32 partitions have file size limitations of 2 GB and 4 GB respectively.
The maximum size of a compiled setup.exe file remains 2,100,000,000 bytes, so if you are creating an installation with a compressed size larger than that, it is necessary to enable the disk spanning feature (by setting DiskSpanning to yes and DiskSliceSize to a large number) to split the installation into smaller chunks, even if you don't actually have multiple physical disks. For more information, see the updated description of the DiskSpanning directive in the help file.

Even if the 2GB limit is a bit silly (FAT16 is ancient), the 4 GB one isn't. FAT32 and ISO9660 (DVDs) are still in use, and it appears some older implementations erroneously turn that 4 GB limit into a 2 GB one (4 GB = 32 bit unsigned, 2 GB = 32 bit signed).

Why would you need to create a new page?  Are you suggesting it does a manual check i.e. ask the user "Do you have a valid Crysis Wars key?" and then creates a random one if they don't?

Couldn't we just create a boolean that returns a true/false depending on if the registry value already exists and then only run the .bat (or the pascal) if it is not present?

Yes the first page after the EULA is the InfoBeforeFile.

That's the idea. Actually I'm running into stupid issues, I guess because Inno only embeds a subset of Pascal and what has been left out isn't very well documented (or at least not obvious for someone not completely familiar with Pascal). This makes the Pascal doc I found not always helpful... Anyway, that's what I'm aiming for, yes.


Couldn't we just create a boolean that returns a true/false depending on if the registry value already exists and then only run the .bat (or the pascal) if it is not present?

Yesterday I had a valid Crysis Wars key, but the installer couldn't know that because it wasn't in the registry. A combined installer is most convenient for when wars isn't already installed, so I feel it's important to give the user the opportunity of entering his valid key, if he has one.

By the way, your note on the first page is a bit misleading. It is possible to join a key-checking server with Crysis Wars Trial, provided you have a valid key in the registry.
I joined TLL Matchbox #2 and MWLL Official #1 without issues yesterday, and I doubt very much the latter bypasses the key verification. Though I didn't test without a key and I can't test right now as I haven't updated yet.

As far as I can tell, no.
No Securom folder anywhere on my system drive, no hit for Securom in the registry.

Not even the retail version comes with it, technically. Only Crysis Warhead might have some copy protection, but Crysis Wars itself has no DRM whatsoever, apart from key authentication on servers.

So that friend of mine I was talking about on IRC (a GhostRyder that apparently still has not registered on these forums) gave it a try over the weekend and it worked. He said there may have been some connectivity problems on his end and he'd have to double check everything but he was able to connect to a random server other than funbocks - a lessfunbocks - which I think confirms that it works!

THIS IS AMAZING!!!

Now that we have a fully working installer, it's time to promote and distribute!

There are a few avenues we can explore.  And I am open to any suggestions.

The only issue that can be foreseen is that of bandwidth.
We are looking at getting a torrent up and running at some point in the near future.  We need a good tracker though.

If anyone can host the file so that we can have multiple mirrors, that would also be appreciated.
(mirrors will continue to be important for the torrent averse)

Edit - We have our first mirror, thank you TrollerLover http://lataamo.eu/MWLL/MWLL-0.7.1+CW.zip (also added to front page)

Edit 2 - We have an article http://www.dsogaming.com/news/mechwarrior-living-legends-gets-a-huge-hotfix-community-dedicated-to-keeping-the-mod-alive/ please note the correct use of my full name (my parents were cruel)

Please note that some people have reported problems using windows built in Zip extractor.

We would recommend that you download 7zip (http://www.7-zip.org/) and use this to extract the zip file.

Added to the walkthrough on the 1st page

I'll also make more effort to make a single file installer (anyone got any suggestions for an installer creator other than Inno?)

I don't really think that's possible. NSIS has a 2GB file size limit, so does MSI. There's a pattern here and there's probably a reason for it.

Windows executables are limited to 4GB anyway, though I'm not certain it applies to self-extracting archives, which largely consist of non-executable data (the instructions will fall well within the 32b limit).

Personally, I don't see what's the big deal in having to download 4 files instead of one. It makes copy-pasting a download link a bit less convenient, and that's about it. A torrent would solve this, too.

Would it be possible to roll in the CCC installer? Maybe a modified version catered towards LL? As I'm trying this installer out on my laptop I know to hunt it down and run it, and to choose a setting a step down from my usual Crysis settings, but for the uninitiated it may be a bit of a road block in the case of:
1. older computer capable of decent fps in vanilla Crysis self destructs when trying to run LL
2. newer computer - the mod looks lackluster as the draw distances need to be extended, etc. person feels cheated out of the "awesome graphics" they were promised

I gotta disagree with adding CCC. I have a pretty old system and CCC gives me poorer performance than simply tweaking specific settings myself, so I'm certain it's not a for-sure fix for everyone.

We discussed including the CCC, but really we see this as everything you need to get started, not including tweeks and optional bits and pieces (otherwise you could argue to include some community maps, server side tools etc. and then the install size increases a lot) you need to draw the line somewhere.

I think that the standard graphics configuration is adequate to start with.

While I can see why you wouldn't want to start adding community maps on the basis of installer file size increases and that they may become out of date in which case you've saved nothing, are there any small community maps ( <60MB, haven't been updated in half a year/pronounced finished by author) that are popular enough that adding 1-2 of them wouldn't hurt?

Or alternatively, a link to an additional installer that unpacks the most popular community maps like the map pack that was issued for Op Viper?

It does nothing, I still get non-valid cd key error =S

I see the points on the CCC, it is probably best to keep them out.

On the maps, they can be downloaded on demand or from the database. I don't think it's necessary to bundle them in too.

Also, is it ok to burn a good 20 copies and leave them in bargain bins at my local EBGames and such  :D ?

Just to be clear: the server needs to block that port (or just for the server application). It won't do anything, if you block that port for you, the client.

McGondy, that only applies to the server, it has to be the one to have that port blocked. It won't do anything if you block your game (client) from using that one. Well but if you're doing it right I have no idea, although I'm pretty sure its that port, I checked the Crysis Wars Dedicated server documentation for it.

I never tried myself to block that port on my server and see the result with a wrong CDKey though, I think I read somewhere it would work.

Best done by copying it to the Wiki, where it belongs, and then linking it.

Seeding is really not that much of an issue. With several 100mbit servers seeding the release, the 1 or 3 mbits someone can contribute from their local connection really doesn't make that much of a difference to warrant the inconvenience it can pose.

Now I'm sad :( .

Glad to know there's some serious horsepower behind the seeding. My main motivation is padding the seeder number. Seeing torrents with low seeders feels a bit like servers with few players, if you know what I mean.

Instructions:
For zip file:
  • Download MWLL-0.7.1+CW.zip
  • Extract the files to a folder (we would recommend using 7Zip - the built in windows extractor has been reported to handle large files poorly)
  • Ensure that the four .bin files are in the same folder as the .exe
  • Run the MWLL+CW_setup.exe

Did you followed these instructions? It should install Crysis Wars Trial, then the Mod MWLL, all set ready to play.

I'm going the seperate install route instead, because I want to be able to invert the aero controls through crysis wars itself like i had last year when i had the full crysis installed. I lost my key.

apparently the seperate download installer was creating a MWLL folder within a MWLL folder and thats where everything went wrong. I merged the folders and got it to work now and got a chance to get a few games in today after fidling with the controls for awhile. Game is fun.
Had someone go nuclear near me and almost died. Alot more fun than MWO, for me anyways, even if there isn't that many people in a game.

Still have MWO, but that game is just lacking so much. I got tired of it in a few months.

Oh, yeah, totally forgot about that, plus haven't had a massive amount of time to look at it.

Just to be clear, this installer (MWLL+CW Combined 1.1) is perfectly fine to the best of my knowledge.

It is only my the MWLL 0.7.1 Complete installer (http://forum.mechlivinglegends.net/index.php?topic=19089.0) that is playing sillybuggers

The Wars Trial (which is the full game minus key) plus the latest version of the mod allows you to play on any "unlocked" server.

I suggest you make sure that you have a minimum of 4 GB of memory to play this, and also a good amount of drive space, in case you have to download maps that don't come with the installer (and this will happen).

You're a little short on the RAM side. MWLL will easily use more than 1GB, so keep not essencial things closed.

GPU I approve (9800gt here as well) but don't crank those graphics up. Also, probably your GPU only has 512VRAM, so you'll crash after a few games (happens to me) due to hitting the limit.

As for the CPU, I think its enough to keep up with the GPU. I don't remember it being too behind compared to an Intel at that time.

Yes the GPU is 512vram.  This system is on its last leg though.  When it does fail, how much memory should I get for the GPU and RAM?  I already have the Windows 7 Pro Sp1 64bit waiting till she dies.   What about the LAN connection speed?

Bear with me this is my first time using a forum ._.

I'm having some problems running the installer.

I've just downloaded the ZIP file. Nothing is installed (anything Crysis or MWLL related)
The instructions say that I should simply extract the file, and run the exe.
It was extracted with windows, because I can't get 7zip to do it.

When I run it, it gives me the message

"The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running (Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1). Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher."

I tried running the .exe as an administrator, and it simply gives me a message saying it cannot find the .exe. It says make sure the name it typed correctly, which it is, and then try again - doesn't work.

I've decided to give the forums a shot, since it looks like its still active.

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong. I may like technology, but this is out of my league.

My extracted folder also has the readme, which I'm not sure if that is interfering at all.

Compare the MD5 checksum of the zip file you downloaded with the one that's in the first post of the thread (MD5: 47afed00e2c7c83877f938a8b33e59b2), to make sure its not corrupt.

One app to do that is this: http://www.winmd5.com/

Then we can rule out an incomplete download as a cause for you having that problem.

I figured it out, thank you.

The windows extractor didn't do the work properly, which cause a corrupt extraction. On my other computer 7zip is working properly, and it did everything right. Now I'm just going to get 7zip running properly on this computer and I'll do the extraction and installation.

Greetings all,

Just a note here:

The download Zip from the center link "Mirror2 - Chicago", when checked with Norton Antivirus shows an infection.

The install.exe contained the threat "Trojan.Gen.3", it was not difficult to remove from the files before installing, and the MWLL package installed correctly.

Could the original uploader or some else please clean up the zip and repost a "Clean" set of files, if we want this program to become popular again we need to provide safe installs.



Thanks,
9erRed

Wait, didn't everyone agree that we'd keep that virus inside the .zip to help us pay for bandwidth through our bitcoin-GPU-mining botnet?

(The file is clean, your antivirus just found a false positive. ;)

Hello MWLL team,
Forgive me for asking stupid questions but in the Downloads section on this forum I only saw the "all in one (GOTY)" version.
I have a Steam version of Crysis Wars already installed so I'd like to get the "64 bit MWLL mod full version for Crysis Wars."

Could you please direct me in the right direction? I'm very interested in trying MWLL because it looks great.

Thanks any who can give me some guidance.

Hi, you can use the official installer (http://mw-ll.org/MWLL-CrysisWars-OpenBeta-Full-0.6.0.exe) or you can try the unofficial complete installer (http://forum.mechlivinglegends.net/index.php/topic,19089.0.html) which is faster but might have some issues. Both of those links are kind of obscure right now so don't worry about not finding them.

so far only the Chicago link works, and it shows up that i have a incorrect game version when i try to connect to Gametracker servers( currently the only one with players is Crywars.de MWLL)

i can't modify my Hosts file(as was suggested in the Gamespy Fix thread somewhere) and i only have direct IP as a option.

i'd love to get this game working ASAP and (hopefully) shoot some of you in the face/cockpit!

Yes, you need to start the game manually and connect to the servers using Str1k3r's tool (Direct IP will not work).
Read HERE (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1PMyyhALZTJBtHpznmsk9Wx6GKm9qqLtzZdV8zMWJmY4/pub#id.n66w4ok6xni3) (Str1k3r's tool part)

Oh and the continual forum 'verification' thing you have going on ......just ridiculous, who decided that? a twelve year old or just a sadist?

There is a tool that you can use to find the best time to join, and to see who is playing right now:

There was a massive influx of bot spam some months ago, the verification was put in place to curb that $hit, it worked, we're happy now :)

The game suddenly doesn't even load for me, i had the low-spec autexec file and stuff, and it all ran fine, then i started getting pb_sb_enable false when i tried joining games, now it simply crashes when i hit play/launch on either the serverlist launcher or the MWLL launcher(that has the clear shaders button and configure server)

Any help here? I haven't tried a fresh install yet, but it's getting a bit annoying that this'll be my 3rd/4th install or so.

Might be some wrong graphic setting saved or something. Go to My Games\Crysis Wars\Profiles and erase the profiles. Then create a new one with the Actionmapper.

If it still doesn't run, try deleting the autoexec low-spec file.

Had a similar problem yesterday. Suddenly the game just didn't want to start.
Then I cleared the shader cache and it started again.

Oh, and btw: if you're using Bruno's tool, I strongly suggest you to not use it to start the game. Use MWLL launcher instead. 64 bit, DX10 and clear shader before starting it.

Ok, got it running, but i still have the EVER omnipresent error when i try to join a serer: "net pb_sv_enable false" or something, the Bruno's tool shows up after this in the dialog box: "Now redirecting traffic between xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:64100 and xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:64100" followed by "recvfrom() failed with error code: 10054" showing up after it gives the net pb.

Post by: Bruno_007 on August 28, 2014, 11:02:27 AM
"net pb_sv_enable false" is not an error per se, just a command that gets sent every time you try to connect to a server.

My tool in its current state is very fickle, so yeah I wouldn't suggest using it in the long run. That error, 10054, means the server closed the connection or the connection was broken.

If you still wanna solve it, without pressing Quit on MWLL, go to the Tool and press Force IP Update, to open the UDP redirection again. Then go back to MWLL and connect to localhost through the console.

No worries man, clanjadwolf.net/mwll is where the files are at. You want the 0.8 full and the 8.2 patch. If you get into any bother jump on the irc and I'm sure it'll get sorted in no time.
