I just got finished building a little custom patcher with node / electron. Works great except…
I forgot one stupid mistake.
I cannot unpack .asar when my app is utilizing it! I’ve been just unpacking the .asar in a temp folder, downloading the new game files and then extracting them in that folder (patch then re-pack the asar); weird way to patch, but it works for me.
But, I totally forgot I wasn’t using .asar through the main app when I creating this. Now, my process doesn’t work because obviously you cannot unpack .asar when it’s in reading ‘locked’ mode.
So, I’m just curious if there is way to just append files to an existing .asar file already?
