Mac osx saving issue

  • #1, by gabartsThursday, 15. June 2017, 23:44 3 years ago
    I'm switching between windows and mac, this last one mainly for testing purpose and some quick modifications. This evening I opened the saved project file which was perfectly working on windows. The first run all was fine, I've made some corrections and saved the project. Now one character standing in a scene is gone, literally gone smile

    Now since I think it's a config.ini saving bug, because on windows for example when I do lot of changes the game need to be refreshed and I delete the config.ini folder under app data and then all is working again.

    I think may be related to this problem also on Mac, where is this folder? What can be this issue?

    SOLVED [I rebooted macbook and opened the original project file, working again. I've changed parameters to character stand at object and then saved and then issue occurred. Weird thing is that I've downloaded again the project from my drive and the problem was still there, that's why I posted as mac osx saving issue]

    Are you starting your game form the beginning or from a saved game?
    I had the same problem (vanished character) in windows when starting the game from an savegame after changing something in the game. I.e. starting from an old savegame.

    EDIT: too late :-)

    regarding this:

    config.ini and savegames:
    /Macintosh HD/Users/yourusername/Library/Application Support(/youcompanyname)/yourgamename/
    game log file:
    Macintosh HD/Users/yourusername/Logs/(/youcompanyname)/yourgamename/

    ah, by the way... on macOS the messages.log is not in the game folder but in the Users /Library/Logs/<gamename>/ folder. Its linked wrong here...

    No, the problem occurred starting from the already edited project on windows and I had no savegames active. I modified some parameters and then saved on mac. The only solution was rebooting and then the problem was gone.

    the link i mentioned before is for the messages.log wink

    config should be here:  /Library/Application Support/(companyname/)gamename/ config.ini
