You need to have your custom client for that.

OH GOOD GOD. You shouldn't even be making a server AT ALL. You can't download all the maps from the web, you need to have all the maps from playing the original game. You download the maps from the regular EndlessOnline servers. Not some website.

Actually, you could do the auto updater via exe stored within the client folder. The user would have to download the updater and execute it when you had an update to the gfx files. The program would simply poll an online resource and download the most current files. But this would be a semi-automatic updater i suppose... Very possible without a custom client. 

Regarding the map files... they still can be downloaded from the main server (not recommended) or you may get them from someone willing to zip them to you. How you get them is up to you.

Eh, everyone would need to make a different updater on their own. Wouldn't making it such like it only adds the extra information be hard? Because the orignal EO graphic files are huge in size and can eat up bandwidth. (Unless downloaded zipped and then extracted through a command. :P)

I said it requires a custom client because that means a whole of a new type of a server, as in EOR, the graphic data is stored in .dat files and it's updater adds the new information to them hence updating it.

[Sorry if that all didn't make sense, I'm kinda sleepy, and I guess the problem's solved?]

Okay this is a pretty simple way of doing this:
First, make the program with socket capabilities, and have them run that instead of the client. Maybe make the client hidden? Well, when you make the program, have it check for updates in the gfx files, and if there is one, download it, then if you updated it, it will use a system call for the client:
#include <stdio.h>
system("endless.exe");

But if the download fails, they abort, or any of that stuff, it will popup with a message saying the client couldn't open.

Sounds interesting, I might do it. :)

Yeah Emin something like that . Becuase the maps / items  etc from eor are impossible to take unless you will re-make them.
So a easy way to add more items and I don't have to make trillions and billions of clients I only chose the auto-updater that will do the job.

Theres always the ProtectMaps function that sauasge just released in 152. It uses alot more bandwith as everytime you leave a map it deletes off your client, causing it to keep loading, and loading.

Wrong. It never saves it. Only placed into memory I think.

Has anyone heard of Simple Updater? It is really the simplest solution, that I used for my project on Eclipse. It's not only for eclipse, but I am pretty sure it works for our EOserv as well.

ok sorry for that corrupt download. here you go - http://www.mediafire.com/?yihuyyzkjzl

I tested this with Eoserv and it is indeed working perfectly fine. I have written down a little credit like thing in the client section, which of course should be there to support the creator of this updater.
