Config.ini script

  • #1, by nelsoncSunday, 01. February 2015, 06:35 6 years ago
    Hi all,

    The script for reading and writing to config.ini as available here http://wiki.visionaire-tracker.net/wiki/Read/Write_Config.ini_(CMS) uses a variable localAppDir. Where is it defined ?

    I think it is autimatically defined by the engine, you can just use it. It referes to the directory your game files (savegames, message.log, and config.ini) are stored.

    Aye, the localAppDir is defined by the engine, sorry. You used to be able to include the config.ini file in your .ved root folder in 3.7.1 but since 4.x most things such as save games, log files & the config.ini are stored in a separate folder in c:/users/username/appdata/local/game-company-ved-name/ -- obviously not that exact path, but you get the idea.

    Also, if company name not set, the config.ini file's folder is the game name.

    I'm getting the following error message while launching the game by doing "Save and run":
    [string "readWriteConfig"]:92: attempt to index local 'fw' (a nil value)
    Any idea ?

    Found it : had space and 'é' in my project name. File explorer doesn't like them.

    There is a bug in the script file :
    for lines in io.lines(fn) do
    1
    2

    should be
      for lines in io.lines(localAppDir .. fn) do
    1
    2

    actually I believe it should probably be...
    for lines in io.lines(fr) do
    1
    2


    Typo mistake.

    I think the lines function expects a filename. I'm getting the error :

    12:41:31: [string "readWriteConfig"]:41: bad argument #1 to 'lines' (string expected, got userdata)
    1
    2


    on that line now, reverting to

    for lines in io.lines(localAppDir .. fn) do
    1
    2

    Still getting the error :

    12:44:47: [string "readWriteConfig"]:46: call to setValue on object  (eGame,-1) failed
    Line :
    if line == "fullscreen = no" then wm:setValue(VConditionValue, false); print("window mode is currently set to Windowed") end
    1
