In Topic: BWS for non-Windows OS

23 December 2015 - 02:42 PM


That sentence (it's 2015) is so odd when...

...most talk here goes around modding a game that is "stone old" in terms of the fast paced computer age. Fascinating that we even talk about it.

...Linux is even relying on an "api-translator" to even play the original game on Linux.

...Linux having trouble to gather more folks than those that use Windows XP or X, which is trying to give the developers your data on a silver plate.

...Linux not being supported by a lot of mods that were essential to build that fat cat most guys were after for a long time -- at least the last time I was considering some kind of shell-script-creation a few years ago; it may have changed until now.


Everyone was free to create something compatible to support the OS that WeiDU runs on, but it seems like nobody that saw those flaws got enough time/endurance to do that. So my guess would be that Linux users just have the short stick here. A mac guy tried to create a conversion script for the BiG World Installpack, but as that batch got more and more out of the ordinary, it was discontinued.


Please mind that I've used Linux when kde and gnome had an 0 as the major version number and I still use Linux for surfing on an older PC. So I'm not against using Linux. It's just the same oddity as guys wanting to use a mac for business and still want their windows office applications to run on it and use parallels or bootcamp to do that and me being a bit bored to consider writing this. :)

In Topic: BiG World Setup (an attempt to update the program)

BWS says right at the end:


Preparing BiG World Debug.7z for easier bug-reports...



Faq says:


To help debugging some errors, a file called BiG World Debug.7z will be created that includes a slightly stripped version of the installation-messages. It well help guys to give you better support.


You can find it in the BG2-folder...


You can also use the BiG World Upload Debug.txt or BiG World Install Debug.txt in the logs-subfolder, with the Upload-thing being a stripped down version that does not show ogg/mp3/tis-decoding output. But as said, 7z is smaller and better for faster up-/downloads.

In Topic: Quick Question About BWS Settings

Really? Well, one is offers customized install (click components) and the other leaves the install itself to the BWPs install.bat and you can install what that offers.
Also checking the chose mods and components button would have been much faster than typing this question. ;)
