Before you try anything from this guide please read 4.0.8 HL news here:


HyperLobby 4.x release have been moved all datafiles in to the new location. Old location was installation folder, but new operating systems are more sesitive to where are applicatioin data located so one of the solutions is move those files in to local user profile and leave installation folder only for static application data. Second major change of the 4.x release was changing naming convention from "hlpro" to "hyperlobby".

HL 4.x setup can do automatic datafiles upgrade, but the requieremts are correctly installed prevoius 3.9.111 version
. This mean if 3.9.11 installation was not made by the original setup program or the installation was manually altered autoupgrade will fail. This is guide how to update those datafiles manually.

3.x vesrion has in the instalation folder those files:

hlpro.inb - pager messages
hlpro.fls - friends list
hlpro.ign - ignore list

4.x version use the same file format, but the names has been changed from hlpro to hyperlobby and the location has been moved in to local user profile. If autoupdate of datafiles fail and user have backup of those hlpro files upgrade can be done manually by this way:

1./ start your 4.x HyperLobby
2./ type /f command in to the chat. It will open new datafile location
3./ close 4.x hyperlobby (!)
3./ copy listed hlpro files from your backup or original 3.x installation folder in to folder openned by the /f command
4./ rename listed hlpro files in to hyperlobby (extension .inb, .fls, .ign must remain).

Thats all Smile . If you done all the steps exactly your 4.x hl will show all your friends, pager messages etc as in 3.x version ...
