Re: TBP 3.6.0 released on Knossos!
I am going to take a stab at this (still learning so be kind to me).   :-)

Getting a glimpse as to how this might need to be setup.  Looking at the file structure in SVN I think any of the added campaigns should be put into separate folders (with the names of each campaign) with any files needed for that campaign. Knossos will then create a VP out of that folder.  For all the single missions if I recall were part of the Star Fury package so put all of them into a folder called Star Fury Pilot.   As for the fixes (which I am not sure what files they are) I would think if they fix the game itself then they would go into the core VPs.  My ships.tlb should just replace the one in the core as it just adds strafing and no other changes.

Does this sound about right?

Re: TBP 3.6.0 released on Knossos!
Also any significant campaigns released in the future would have their own package as addons and show up in Knossos separately.

Does this sound reasonable?

Re: TBP 3.6.0 released on Knossos!
Knossos will create VP files if you use the +Package option from Modify Mod on the Development tab. That option allows you to specify the name of the package and creates all the relevant folders for you. Then you add those folders in SVN.

Things are a little fiddly cause we're basically using two versioning systems. SVN and Knossos. But in general, it works well.

I don't have mod manager permissions for Knossos (I do have a Nebulas account).  I think wookiejedi will help me some so I am willing to learn.

Re: TBP 3.6.0 released on Knossos!
Should the TBP show up under the Develop Tab in Knossos?

Re: TBP 3.6.0 released on Knossos!
Yes. I'm not sure what will happen if you already have a non-developer version though.

Re: TBP 3.6.0 released on Knossos!
I will delete and redownload it?

 
Re: TBP 3.6.0 released on Knossos!
I delete TBD and then reloaded Knossos and went to Explore tab and it does not show up and still nothing under Deveop

 
Re: TBP 3.6.0 released on Knossos!
wookiejedi helped me figure it out. Had to delete the knossos folder in appdata.  Now I see TBP in the Develop tab.

Is there a change log somewhere for the 3.6.2 -> 3.6.3 update?

Re: TBP 3.6.0 released on Knossos!
After we get the upload error fixed I will do one.  It was mostly adding in some campaigns and Star Fury Pilot missions.

Re: TBP 3.6.0 released on Knossos!
I get an error after installing TBP 3.6.3 that suggests to restart Knossos. After I do I get a missing cursor bitmap error when trying to start TBP so I can't even run it!

 
Re: TBP 3.6.0 released on Knossos!
Yes there is an issue with Knossos right now.  Not sure who is working on it.

Re: TBP 3.6.0 released on Knossos!
Any idea what caused the problem? I managed to check out all the changes from SVN so I might be able to look at things tomorrow.
