A while back there was talk of Knossos being modified to use existing installations, and/or an FAQ for existing users transitioning to Knossos. My apologies if those are done and I just am not finding them. I know it was lower priority to bug fixes. I'm thinking about taking the plunge, but I would really rather not re-download the 57GB of mods I already have if possible. Here are a few questions I have:
If I do have to re-download everything (I realize I don't have to do it all at once), should I delete the existing mod folders in my freespace2 directory?
Delete anything else in that directory?
If so, delete before or after using Knossos?
Does Knossos let me choose my directory? My Windows (c:) drive is a smallish SSD, so my current installation is on another physical drive. I CANNOT use c:\program files.
Should I use a directory for Knossos that is different from the legacy directory I am currently using? My current retail FreeSpace 2 installation is from ancient CDs. I still have them, but I am always concerned that they may not load or be recognized by my PC.
Will my mod progress automatically be saved from the legacy installation?
These are the questions I can think of now, but I may have more later.
Thanks, and awesome work!!
