PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.14.3 (combined launcher/installer)

<< < (226/227) > >>

I'm having some issues with Knossos after not playing the game for a long time. Is there a way to reset the path to the retail data? I can't load anything because the game exe (which is in the Knossos library folder) doesn't detect the retail files.

First, close Knossos, then assuming you're on Windows, go to the "Run..." menu (Windows Key + R), type %appdata% and press Enter, then rename the folder knossos to, say, knossos_old.

The next time you start Knossos, you should see the "first run" welcome wizard.

IIRC the equivalent folder on Linux is ~/.knossos and I think it's ~/Library/Application Support/knossos on Mac.

Yeah, I figured the installation was not set right somehow. I got that first run window and saw what it was doing with the retail FS2 files. I ended up forcing Knossos to use my existing FS2 folder as its library folder. It complains about that but you can trick it by moving all the FS2 files out, setting the folder and moving the files back in. :D The benefit of this is that it allows both a traditional FS2 install and Knossos to coexist with the same VP files. I have a lot of old campaigns and stuff that still use the old launcher and mod.ini system.

CP5670:
Also, one suggestion I have is to somehow highlight the "Freespace Upgrade MediaVP" and "Freespace Port MediaVP" as the options a new player should be using when they first set this up. I had the same issue as this guy.

Thanks for sharing. I thought the first-run wizard mentions the FS2 MVPs at some point in the process, although I think it just tells you about them; you still have to go find them yourself. No mention of FSPort MVPs, but that was just an oversight.
