This preset sync will allow you to receive presets uploaded to the server automatically. No more sending your preset to everyone and no more downloading every preset. (Note you don't have to install the sync on your pc to share your preset installation is just to receive. If you can't install for whatever reason skip straight down to Uploading Presets.)

Important note if you have a limited internet connection or very little space this addon might not be for you

Get it here 18th of Feb updated again the download should be much more efficient. Please please provide feedback in the thread! I am unable to fully test it myself.
https://feral-heart.com/DL/PresetSyncSetup.exe

The first run might take a while at present there are over 800 presets to sync.

No tutorial for now but it shouldn't be needed any more just install like you did the game run it and enjoy.
Sorry no MAC/Linux or Windows XP support.
Mac/Linux support may return later

Quick explanation of the folder layout you get with preset sync
  • presets             (Reset at each game run. Only use this to copy out any presets you export)
  • PrivatePresets    (Treat this like the old presets folder copy your exported presets in and any presets from others. These override the Public Presets)
  • PublicPresets     (Where presets from the server appear don't put anything in here)

Note if you don't use your account for a month your preset will be automatically removed. You can just reupload when you come back though!

Old setup information no longer needed
Update Added XP Support Linux/Mac support can be found here

Before we begin, I advise you make a copy of your FH folder in case anything goes wrong.

Firstly, you need my modified version of the FH game executable. Vista Win7 and Win8 users can get this here XP users can find it here

XP users have two requirements:
  • You must be an administrator the first time you run the new game file.
  • Your hard drive must be in NTFS format (most are you can check by going to "My Computer" right clicking the drive where you have FH installed and clicking properties)

Now replace FeralHeart.exe from your FeralHeart Folder (normally C:\FeralHeart\) with the copy you just downloaded, Then run the game.

Once the game runs you should now find you have 3 folders in your FeralHeart folder:
  • presets             (Reset at each game run. Only use this to copy out any presets you export)
  • PrivatePresets    (Treat this like the old presets folder copy your exported presets in and any presets from others)
  • PublicPresets     (Where presets from the server appear don't put anything in here)

You will find your presets are now in 'PrivatePresets' and links to them are found in 'presets'. Once we have public presets, links to those will also be merged into the presets folder.

Quick note about PrivatePresets they have priority over public ones so if you have an old private preset for someone you will not see any updates for them if they upload it publicly.

Warning: do not put anything in the public folder or modify anything as you may break the sync system.

Now thats setup we are ready to receive some presets.

Download and run BittorrentSync from here

Then follow the Screenshots bellow. Some I have listed as Optional but I do recommend them.


Optional: I untick the quicklaunch and desktop options here as I feel they are unneeded.
Click next


Click Install


Choose you have a secret and enter "BTQI4TBSVH3KCDNQ7X6NU3QZVA55RD3IY"
Read agree and next


Browse and select your PublicPreset folder
Next again


Now we can Skip


From here on is optional but recomended
Open BTSync if it doesnt automatically you should see this window


Right click and choose show folder preferences


Click properties, Check the boxes as follows then click add


Fill in the server info then hit ok twice


Now hit preferences you probably want to untick the notifications as they will likely become annoying and you may want to change your computers name as other users can read this.
Hit apply and we are done




Now for uploading your presets

For those who have used the character reset, you will find it just below on the same page.

For those who haven't Login at the top of the site and click "User Panel"
There you will find an upload form.








If your preset is too big see here

As long as you keep using the game, your presets will stay. If you don't enter the game for 30 days your presets will be removed to make space on users PCs.

I should probably post this in game help, but I have an error...

Probably could be a problem with this darn computer, but... anyone have any idea what I should do about this? :P
But yeah, this is awesome. :o Thanks so much Raz! :3

See that normally if you just try to run the feralheart.exe rather that using it to replace the existing one in your feralheart folder. The other occasion I've seen that is if your running XP.
