Re: Nightly: 31 August 2016 - Revision 71c2963
Something happened with this nightly that I haven't seen before.

I was having a technical problem with a mission on 3.7.4 (final) so I decided to try this build and it worked.  I was able to complete the mission and move on in the campaign.  However, then I tried to go back to 3.7.4 with the campaign and it was at the mission I was having problems with again, I hadn't moved on.  When I went back to this build I was at my correct point of progress again.


Did something change in these builds that won't allow campaign progress to be shared across builds?

Re: Nightly: 31 August 2016 - Revision 71c2963
I believe some pilot file related things were changed in a recent nightly. You won't be able to use old pilot files with nightlies and new files won't work with 3.7.4.

With nightly builds, pilot files are now stored in your user folder (in C:\Users\<NAME>\AppData\Roaming\HardLightProductions\FreeSpaceOpen\data\players\ on Windows; I don't recall the Mac and Linux paths off the top of my head). wxLauncher 0.11 automatically copies your configuration and pilot files to the new folder the first time an SDL2 build is run; if you want to keep that progress in 3.7.4, you'll need to copy/move your pilot files back.

Alternatively, you can try portable mode; on Windows, this should basically be the same as the old way of doing things, but with fs2_open.ini support.

I believe some pilot file related things were changed in a recent nightly. You won't be able to use old pilot files with nightlies and new files won't work with 3.7.4.
This is inaccurate; FSO should always be backwards-compatible with old pilot files, and we haven't yet changed the pilot file version, so pilots should still be compatible with older versions of FSO (going back to 3.7.2). There was, however, a brief period where writing pilot files was broken altogether.

The way m|m phrased it to me on IRC this morning made it sound like that was the case. Regardless, the recent nightly changes have broken all my old pilot files.

Thanks Admiral.  I tried your suggestion and it worked; I was able to get back on track with 3.7.4

Re: Nightly: 31 August 2016 - Revision 71c2963
May I ask why this change was made though (moving pilot files to "Roaming" for new nightlies rather than keeping them where they were)?

Same reason Windows no longer stores settings in the registry: the whole point of SDL2 was to unify how things are handled on the different platforms. The folder is obtained by calling SDL_GetPrefPath(), which gives "C:\Users\<name>\AppData\Roaming\<stuff>\" on Windows, "~/.local/share/<stuff>/" on Linux, and "/Users/<name>/Library/Application Support/<stuff>/" on Mac. Additionally, it should avoid problems with UAC on Windows if FSO is installed to Program Files, because writing to the program's directory is frowned upon. For anyone who still wants to do it (e.g. they have FSO on a thumbdrive), that's what the "-portable_mode" command-line option is for.

Re: Nightly: 31 August 2016 - Revision 71c2963
The portable mode is not yet supported by the launcher so you need to edit your fs2_open.ini by hand to change the settings.
