List of ignored files in Build Loader

How it works

Build Loader allows you to create a list of ignored files. These files will be added to a complete game build, but not to patches. It is needed when the game build contains files that can be changed during gameplay, for example, settings, user profile, or save files. If these files are not added to the list of ignored files, Launcher will detect a violation of integrity when updating the game and download the whole game again.

How to get it

To create a list of ignored files:

  1. Create a JSON file.
  2. Add to the created file the ignoring_files array with a list of relative paths (to the root directory of the game) to the ignored files.

Copy

{
   "ignoring_files":[
      “file1.bin”,
      “some_directory/file2.bin”
   ]
}

  1. When initializing Build Loader or uploading your game build to the server, pass the –ignore-file-path <file_path> parameter, where <file_path> is the path to the file with the list of ignored files.
  2. To enable use of the list of ignored files, pass the –use-ignore-file parameter when uploading your game build to the server.

Note
If you don’t pass the –use-ignore-files parameter, Build Loader will upload all files, not ignoring the files from the list.
