how to apply a mod (Win 7)
« on: February 05, 2015, 08:06:16 am »
Hello everybody.

Could someone please tell me how to apply a mod using the command "./ufo +set fs_gamedir mymod"? To be honest, I don't know how/where to enter it (OS: Win 7).

I know how to start a mod from the game menu.

Thank you in advance.

You need to either:
A) Open a command prompt window navigate to the game directory and run it with ufo.exe +set fs_gamedir yourmod
B) Run it from the windows run dialogue: navigate to  ufo.exe, select it then add the +set fs_gamedir yourmod part once the exe is on the text box
C) Edit the program's shortcut: Open the shortcut properties and add the +set fs_gamedir yourmod after the path to ufo.exe that appear in one of the text boxes (not the working dir one!)

Disclaimer: I haven't used windows in a good while, that is how I remember things working, instructions might not be 100% accurate...

Actually you need    ./ufo +set fs_gamedir yourmod

I use the shortcut method because you can easily switch between different mods by creating multiple shortcuts

I'd like to provide the details for all enthusiastic beginners, like me (starting with the quite cool mod ajguns - I recommend it, works perfectly with 2.5 stable):

WIN 7

Starting a mod via command line:
- WIN + R
- enter: C:\Program Files\UFOAI-2.5\ufo.exe ./ufo +set fs_gamedir ajguns
  (without quotation marks)
- hit ENTER
=> Here we go.

...via Shortcut:
- right-click the standard UFO AI shortcut on the desktop
- select "properties"
  In the register "link/conjunction/assignment" (?)
  there are two spaces that can be corrupted:
  (1) Target: "C:\Program Files\UFOAI-2.5\ufo.exe"
  (2) Execute in/ Working area: "C:\Program Files\UFOAI-2.5"

(I translated the terms from german, so don't burn me if they're titled a bit different in the english win version).

- change the entry in no. 1 exactly - including the quotation marks given - to:
  "C:\Program Files\UFOAI-2.5\ufo.exe" ./ufo +set fs_gamedir ajguns
- save the amendments   

=> Here we go.

Ubuntu:

 ;D No idea ;D

Have fun.
