Moving savegames and profiles
Hey Guys.  Stunning, awesome game.  Thanks for all your hard work and dedication.

Quick question, how do I move savegames (campaign progress) and perhaps launcher settings (profiles) from one installation to another (on a different PC)?

thanks!
Jim

Just copy your Diaspora/data/players folder over.

As for launcher settings, I do not know what wxLauncher uses.

%appdata%/wxLauncher

But be careful if you're moving to a folder that already has wxLauncher cause Diaspora shares that folder with the non-Diaspora version of wxLauncher.

Sounds like a major default of wxLauncher, if the launcher data is shared between all the launchers, since you need one launcher for FS2-based mods and another one for each standalone...

I guess I'll keep to 5.5g for the time being :nervous:

Re: Moving savegames and profiles
There are plans for a portable mode of wxLauncher but of course no ETA for it. Moving data from %AppData% to %AppData% is something of a hack.

You don't NEED a version of wxLauncher for each standalone, it's just that we wanted to do things that wxLauncher won't support till the next version. :) We needed them a little bit earlier than wxLauncher was ready for.

Re: Moving savegames and profiles
Great Thanks, I've added my Diaspora/data/players folder into dropbox so that I've now effectively got cloud saves :)  I'll leave launcher settings alone for now, thanks!
