Description

Seeing the most recent problems with the updater (mainly the fact that CocoMUD couldn't update to the last version), enhancing CocoMUD itself has become challenging. It is proposed here to develop a "fake updater", one that can "show" problems before they're actually published and make the updater crash. The way to do that would be to redirect the updater on a local ZIP archive with the new version of CocoMUD.

Notice that with PyInstaller, it might be possible to turn the uptade.bat script itself in a standalone Python script. This has to be investigated further as this might lead to more portability in preparing for updates.

Eventually, a -z option was added to the dbg_updater executable. This option allows to run from a pre-downloaded ZIP archive and therefore can be used to fake an update and introspect.
