Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.14.1 (combined launcher/installer)
General question: would updating a mod overwrite/delete any custom files (e.g. additional missions created with fred2_open, additional music files, extra tables)?

Yeah, if anyone notices an error like this, please let us know.

So it turns out it's a widespread issue. I've been experiencing the very same issue for a while now. I just can't look for any mods to download.

Also, I get an error whenever I try to login via my Nebula account. The login procedure seems successful but I do in fact get an error, plus a redirect to Discord.

For Ubuntu 20.04 problems: Did you install this one (scroll down)?

Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.14.1 (combined launcher/installer)
I can confirm that deleting mods.json before starting Knossos is an effective workaround on both Windows and MacOS X.

Surely it must be possible to incorporate the equivalent of this into a new version of Knossos, in the short term, until a correct fix can be devised?

 
Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.14.1 (combined launcher/installer)
I'm having consistent issue with no mods appearing on the Explore tab in Knossos. Is there a way around this?

Edit: Posting my log, there's several errors related to FSNebula and JSON files.

@flipdark95, if you read the previous page of posts, you'll know as much as everyone else.  TL;DR This is an ongoing issue, and volunteers are working on it when they can.

Where is the mods.json file? I don't see it in my Knossos folder.

Ah bugger, is there anyway to contact the creator of Knossos? Aside from that, the issue is that I can't open mod download links from FSnebula.org in my browser as well, so I can't even download most mods on there aside from what I have at the moment.

 
Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.14.1 (combined launcher/installer)
Where mods.json is depends on OS.  For me on Linux Xubuntu it is in my Home folder /home/jeff/.config/knossos/
For a Windows user on my Youtube channel that deleting mods.json also worked.
In his case it was located C:\Users\YOURNAME\AppData\Roaming\knossos
 :lol:

I can confirm deleting the mods.json and launching knossos does work.

I have searched my user folder for mods.json (Win 10) and get nothing. I search for AppsData and get a long list, all empty folders. Where else could I look for this mods.json file? Are the devs getting close to a solution? I had just downloaded Blue Planet before this problem occured, so I have something to play, but I am hoping it is fixed soon.

 
Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.14.1 (combined launcher/installer)
Unless it's another thing that Win10 removed, you should be able to search "My Computer" for mods.json.  You may wish to bookmark the location where it ends up being found, for future reference.

I searched and all I come up with are web results, no mods.json found :confused:

Actually, open the search bar in the taskbar, type "%appdata%", go to Knossos and you'll find it there.

After deleting this file my Knossos explore tab is empty,no mods found. Before deleting it showed installed mods. What is going on?

OK. It took awhile to populate the list, but the explore tab shows all available mods now :yes:

 
Re: PUBLIC BETA: Knossos 0.14.1 (combined launcher/installer)
Hmm, I keep deleting the mods.json to try and refresh my mod list, but the progress at the bottom gets stuck at 50%, and results in another incomplete JSON file.

I think you need to delete it while exited out of the app and then start Knossos.
