New build released! - v. 1.9.36.0
Posted by Panagiotis Mantzouranis on 22 March 2016 02:52 PM

We are excited to announce a new Gizmo update with many extra features and fixes!

BEFORE UPGRADING

THE NEW VERSION REQUIRES .NET VERSION 4.6.1 IN BOTH SERVER AND CLIENTS.

DO NOT INSTALL UNTIL YOU HAVE UPGRADED ALL CLIENTS & SERVER. FAILURE TO DO SO WILL RESULT IN CLIENT UPDATE LOOP!

If, during install, you receive a message that you have already a newer version, do the following:

Create a copy of your Gizmo Server folder
Uninstall Gizmo Server from add/remove programs
Install the latest version on the same folder as the old one
Your settings should carry over automatically. If not, then copy paste the "Settings" folder from your old installation.

For a complete list of changes, visit this link

 

As always, REMEMBER to backup your database & your old Gizmo server folder before each upgrade!

Changes to our License Authorization Certificate
Posted by Panagiotis Mantzouranis on 26 January 2015 04:58 PM

Some of you might have already noticed the changes to both are Forums and our Helpdesk. These changes where accompanied with a migration to a newer and (hopefully) more robust server.

The migration procedure also required an update to the Gizmo License Authorisation Server and its Certificate. Unfortunately, due to a Microsoft Security Update, the Certificate now requires a specific Windows Patch to be applied to Servers running Server 2003 or Windows XP. In the event you are experiencing an error message during Gizmo Launch "The underlying connection was closed: Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel." you will need to install this Windows Update: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/968730

 

If you are having trouble applying the patch, feel free to contact us. You can read more about the error here

 

We are once again sorry for any inconvenience

Quick Update
Posted by Panagiotis Mantzouranis on 18 March 2014 09:51 AM

Since there has been some time from the last Gizmo release, we though we should give a quick update on what we have been working on.

 

  • Gizmo server will be split into a server and an Administration module. The server will most likely run as service.
  • Remote server management through Administrator module.
  • A new battle.net launcher License Management to replace Diablo and Starcraft II ones.
  • Minecraft License Management - based on Zachu's LINK
  • Full translation customisation
  • Keyboard & language skin improvements
  • General Client fixes and stability improvements.

Keep in mind that some of these features may not appear right away in our next release.
