Content and Settings in Userdata (openBVE)

Post by lonelyinardwick on Mon Jan 30, 2012 12:22 am

Since the recent version of openBVE, the settings and content are now stored in the UserData folder, to which I don't agree to this change because I rarely visit my AppData folder. I prefer to store my content and settings in the installation directory, so I downloaded a patch to do so. But so far it hasn't worked, and the logs.txt file for error checking is still being updated in the UserData folder.

Also, when I tried out the ManagedContent feature, and downloaded all of the contents that were present, all of which were placed in the Managed Content folder without any hierarchy, this is very confusing for me, and I the patch couldn't fix this problem as well (even though I configured the filesystem.cfg file to place them in the Install directory).

Where exactly do I put the filesystem.cfg in order to work, and will it move stuff from the UserData directory to the Install directory?

Dunno. But for the sake of my sanity (having observed the difficulties from a safe distance) I'm still happily running the last version of openbve. What's not to like about it?
I'm not sold on the "managed content" at this point. It isn't the concept, it's the mechanism I have reservations about insofar as the extra work by the developer who has to deploy it

I agree. Graymac do you think you could send me the last version of OpenBve as this current version isn't working at all for me Mad .
Thanks
Jesse.

I think Michelle should seriously consider putting that old version back online. Very Happy

Michelle is only human and can sometimes make mistakes. However, she is right most of the time. And when she is spot on, it's a treat!!

"Exactly" seems to be a very flexible word to you. As the documentation says, place the filesystem.cfg under INSTALLDIRECTORY/UserData/Settings where INSTALLDIRECTORY is the directory where OpenBve.exe is located, and that is hopefully not AppData/Roaming. All in all, I can tell you this works, has been working for over a year now, and will work even for you if you follow the instructions a little closer to exact than "exactly".

That's telling you, Jeff! silent

I respect your post that One forum is intimidating you. But this forum all be it UNHELPFUL to your post, is useful for some things. Just because its unhelpful for one post doesn't mean you can start a small rant.

We speculate because we are unsure what answer your aiming for. A games a game, And while Michelle is running the show anything you try ask about will simply get rejected. She doesn't seem to have very nice people skills.


I think this topic has run its course.
