Most Stable Revision For Big Projects.

Recommended Posts

Hello there,

 

I am looking forward to start a big project that requires big modification almost on every aspect. Therefore, I am planning to use one of rAthena's revision and start working my way from there. I don't really have to update through rAthena anymore since most of the modification is too big and it would take a lot of time and effort to keep updating the rAthena. 

 

I am just wondering, what revision of rAthena would be the best to start a big project as such? What would be the best and stable client to be used with it?

 

Cheers,

Shade

Uh, may I recommend TortoiseSVN?  It'll merge all of the official code with your custom edits so you don't have to manually update anything.

 

You just right click > update and it works it's magic.

I am not that well experienced with TortoiseSVN but last time when I do that, it either overwrites my modifications or stop updating due to some errors. How does it work? What if the code that I've modified is also updated by the developers?

TortoiseSVN should never overwrite your changes unless you tell it to.

 

When you Right Click > Update, it'll show the status of each file it changes.  'Updated' just means it updated to the most current rev. 'Merged' means it took your custom edits and applied them to the update as well.

 

If you ever get a conflict where you edit code that the devs also update, and TortoiseSVN doesn't know which code to use, it'll say 'Conflict'.  You can simply pick to use your code, or the dev's code in this case.  It'll also show you the code that is conflicting in case you are not sure.

 

I would give you an example but I am at the most current rev and I can't update right now :P

Hello,

 

We are slowly transitioning ourselves to GIT so it may be a better idea for you to learn to use that instead :)
