mklink needs admin rights. I'd also have to call it for every single file at which point I could just copy those files instead of linking them.

mklink /d , and have the program look for that folder.    I use mklink /d to link my user folders from my spinny disk to my user profile on my SSD.

However that does leave the problem of admin rights.  I mean, you could prompt for it, and have the description of the ReShade mod state that it will need admin permissions.

Wait, can you link to a dll in a subfolder as long as the .exe is in the parent?  if not this wouldn't work.

No, that doesn't work. The .dll has to be in the same folder as the .exe.

Hey guys!
I have a problem with the downloading. When I click on the download links, the fsnebula.org isn't able to load. After a while it says: The webpage can't be reached. fsnebula.org takes too long to respond.
Can somebody upload the latest version of the launcher somewhere if it won't/can't be repaired?
Many thanks!

Weird... fsnebula.org loads just fine for me. Is a program on your computer blocking it or something?

 
Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.7.8 (combined launcher/installer)
Well, it seems somehow the university's IT blocked the page. I used VPN and loaded just fine and was able to download the Knossos. Sadly a bunch of ports are blocked in my dormatory, so no online playing and torrenting without VPN servers. However I didn't experienced that pages were locked apart from some porn sites (as said, I don't know ofc :Đ).

Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.7.9 (combined launcher/installer)
I'm currently finishing the global flags stuff and fixing a few bugs I've introduced recently. Once that's done, I'll get to the private mods/staff tab/acl feature.
Progress has been slow the last few weeks because I was busy with exams. Those are done now and I hope to make some progress on this over the weekend.

Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.8.0 (combined launcher/installer)
Well, I managed to finish the global flags and a few critical bugs but I got sick over the weekend and haven't managed to start work on the staff tab, yet.
Anyway, 0.8.0 has been released and as mentioned above, it finally implements global flags (click on the cogwheel on the upper-right corner and you should see them). You still have to set your global flags for each version of FSO since each version supports a slightly different set of flags. I want to simplify this in the future (i.e. allowing you to copy flags from one version to another or creating a general list of flags that are supported by every version after 3.8.0) but this should make everyone's life easier in the meantime.

Next on my list of stuff to work on is a simple updater for macOS users (It will just download the latest .dmg, open it and quit Knossos. You still have to overwrite the old version yourself), fixing FSO build installation on macOS and the staff tab. I'm currently not aware of any critical bugs so tell me if you find some! Bugs can be reported here, on Discord or on GitHub. You can also see all current feature requests over on GitHub. Feel free to add your own.

 
Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.7.8 (combined launcher/installer)
hello people.

Its a very innovative and a useful launcher.

But here i am facing a problem. i do not see any settings for anti aliasing.

I'm asking this because i have an old PC and cannot really handle anti aliasing very well.

any solutions to tweak about the anti aliasing? my frame rate is very low. hence i am asking.

Thank you.

FSO doesn't have antialias options (apart from the flags). However, disabling Deferred Lighting might give you better performance.
To change the FSO flags, go to the settings screen (click the cogwheel in the upper-right corner) and open the flags section there. If you only want to change the flags of a single mod, go to the home tab, hover over the mod tile, click on the little arrow on the bottom and go to "FSO Settings". That screen allows you to change the flags for that specific mod.

There was an option for antialias but it was removed in 3.8.0.

There's a command-line option for FXAA, but it's disabled by default.

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again

<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"

Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.8.0 (combined launcher/installer)
The person that uploaded the new Inferno release with the version 1.3.1-classic and deleted the old 1.3.1 one, should also update the Sol - A History release, because Sol - A History can not be downloaded anymore, because InfR1 is missing, now.

Actually i am curious, why there is a complete new Inferno entry in the first place? Why not a simple update to the older one? Also a few weeks ago, i had suddenly two complete different Cardinal Spear releases on Knossos... because there were also a complete new upload with a new mod ID...  unfortunately the older one that had more effort in a Knossos compatible Logo and Banner and looked nicer in the Explore tab, was deleted ^^.

Actually they were uploaded by different persons.  JSRNerdo updated INFR1 and I uploaded SAH.  I'll fix SAH.

Old Inferno was merely updated, in preparation for the upcoming Inferno release.  The second Cardinal Spear was the FSCRP version, and it now has the prettier images.
Edit:  apparently Inferno Classic apparently is a new mod, but the reasoning stands.

So how do i get text to speech working for this since most mods seems to not have voice (probably due to lack of voice actors) :banghead:

Go to settings (the cog icon in the upper-right corner), open the speech section, check the appropriate boxes next to "Use Speech In" and press the big save button at the top. The setting is global and should apply to all mods.

My 'Voice' drop down menu has no selections (I have IVONA 2 Amy installed and it works fine with the wxLauncher)

I never used this feature, but i actually can confirm that. Even the default Cortana TTS speech on Windows 10 is not selectable.


Additionally i do not have any connection to the database, as it seems. I am unable to log in as well i can not create and upload new Mods, because i can not verify the mod ID.
I wanted to upload some Mods on Knossos that are not there already.

EDIT:
"Shivans" is not playable, because it does not have any exe configuration in the mods.json by default. So it requires a user configuration before.
