Warzone 2100-3.4.1 doesn't contain 2100 3.4.1?

Post by Dark_Cloud » 01 Nov 2020, 23:44

Hello, so brother downloaded the current version of WZ off wz2100.net and there's some issues with it.
Image
Pic 1 is a side by side of the version the new version and the one we used prior, Warzone 2100 Portable-3.3.0 contains Warzone 2100 3.3.0, this houses all the yummies like maps and mods seen in pic 2. The 2100-3.4.1 doesn't have a comparable 2100 3.4.1 to house all the maps and mods.

Also, the location indicated in https://developer.wz2100.net/wiki/FileL ... nfigfolder and viewtopic.php?f=4&t=12159&sid=1642f9368 ... b9970d8b4c only has the 2100 3.4.0 which contains only the logs as seen in pic 3. I would assume the reason that's not 3.4.1 is that as long as it's 3.4 it'll do, but if that's not it I don't know why this file would be of a different version and in a different location, let alone why all it has is logs and not the mods maps etc.

I'll also say that I tried the Steam version of 2100 as well recently but I came across the same issue and just left it because a prior working version was installed anyway, which I'd do again if our other PC had a matching version of the game to play multiplayer.
Is there another location for all this good stuff that I just can't find without a flashlight map and written instructions? Do I need to make that location myself (god help me)?

I'm sure I'm just missing something obvious due to incompetence and then begging for help on said obvious issue, sorry about that, but I am just thoroughly lost when things don't just work by themselves out of the box.

I don't understand what you mean O_o , what do you mean, you want to play the map / mod but most of the maps / mods only exist in the previous version? I will just say that the map all works well (not sure if it doesn't work, if it is map-mod) on my laptop, if the mod I am not sure it will work because maybe there are many changes from the stats that might not work, but strangely ArtRevolution can run on warzone2100 version 3.4.x on my laptop, so I thought maybe the mod in 3.3.x to go to version 3.4.x didn't change stats at all (not sure).

for the folder / file location is not much different for the 3.3.x - 3.4.x release :3

for the steam version, it's not supported by the developer here.

or what do you mean exactly? I really don't understand what you are saying. :hmm: :?
Someday I will show them the true nature of life! If they know, Regards from CB.

Oh great the image didn't work, thank you imgur.
What I mean is that inside a folder called Warzone 2100 Portable-3.3.0 there was a folder called Warzone 2100 3.3.0, this contained all the map and mod folders.
The Full Installer version downloaded from wz2100.net came a folder called Warzone 2100-3.4.1, but this one did not contain a similar Warzone 2100 3.4.1, which means it just did not come with the map, mod, config and all the rest of that stuff, period.

That aside my brother now downloaded the Portable Installer instead which contains all the relevant things, no clue what the difference is but hey ho.

Warzone 2100 3.4.1 still uses the "3.4.0" config folder.

Future versions will hopefully improve this further, to support forward-compatibility of saves and configuration.

Solves that mystery, but the more elusive question is why does that folder contain nothing but logs?
Again for clarity, this is a problem with the Full version, not the Portable which works as intended and comes with the relevant 3.4.0 folders for mods.

The "Full version" Windows build stores its config folder in your APPDATA folder:
The directory Warzone 2100 Project\Warzone 2100 <version> is located under the %APPDATA% folder.

Hence, the default path for the Warzone 2100 configuration data on Windows Vista+ would be: C:\Users\$USER$\AppData\Roaming\Warzone 2100 Project\Warzone 2100 <version>\

By default, the %APPDATA% folder is hidden. Entering: %APPDATA%\Warzone 2100 Project\ into the address bar of Windows Explorer / File Explorer will browse to your Warzone directory.

"By default, the %APPDATA% folder is hidden." I believe that's the case closed. Can't find something you don't know you're looking for and it's not visible just looking through folders.
Still, I think I'll just stick to the portable version, very simple and plug-n-play.
