I got the idea for this tool when I read about mediadogg creating the HTTPJolie plugin. I had sometimes found that there were profiles that had been updated online that I had, for some reason, missed. I wanted to be able to compare my local profiles to their online counterparts in order to find those differences. So I created DpUpdateCheck to compare the unlocked sections of my profiles to the online. I figured that if I locked a section, then I wouldn't want to update it anyway. But ...

While testing I realized that most of the differences that I found were actually corrections that I had made to my local profiles, but that I had never contributed. So that changed the focus a bit, and I made the program more customizable.

Anyway, what it does is to compare the profiles that is in a DVD Profiler export file to the same profiles online, and create a flag file of the profiles that differ. This flag file is then saved in Profilers flag file directory, and you can load it in DVD Profiler. Then you can examine the differences (Online / Refresh DVD from Invelos / Preview Changes), or Alt-orc.

Since the checking can take some time you may want to work on something else while it is running, and therefore I have kept the main window very small:


The General Settings look like this:


And the Section Settings look like this:

The default is actually If not locked for all sections.

Download DpUpdateCheck version 1.0. Please read the help file, it contains important information!

And remember, you must have HTTPJolie installed in order to use DpUpdateCheck!

Please note that you don't have to run DVD Profiler/HTTPJolie elevated (as administrator) in order to use this integration!
