Introduction

The game still uses a virtual file system as before, see Content Management for information on this. However, starting in 0.6.4, the "layering" effect of the directory system is no longer used to index files.

Hey, my remixes don't work!

UQM 0.6.4 (SVN revision 2869) changed addon pack mechanics incompatibly. Your remix zips are still OK, but you will need to perform these steps:

  • Move the addons directory from content/packages to content/
  • Download the appropriate .rmp files from http://sc2.sourceforge.net/remix-rmp/ and put them in the same directory as the remix zips.
  • Ensure that the remix directory is, in fact, addons/remix.

Detailed description

Still needs to be done.

A typical layout

On Linux

A typical The Ur-Quan Masters installation on Linux looks like this:

/usr/local/bin/uqm        (wrapper script)
/usr/local/lib/uqm/uqm    (the actual executable)
/usr/local/share/uqm/content/packages/uqm-0.6.0-content.uqm
/usr/local/share/uqm/content/packages/uqm-0.6.0-3domusic.uqm
/usr/local/share/uqm/content/packages/uqm-0.6.0-voice.uqm
/usr/local/share/uqm/content/addons/remix/uqm-remix-pack1.zip
/usr/local/share/uqm/content/addons/remix/uqm-remix-pack2.zip
/usr/local/share/uqm/content/addons/remix/uqm-remix-pack3.zip
/usr/local/share/uqm/content/addons/remix/remix1.rmp
/usr/local/share/uqm/content/addons/remix/remix2.rmp
/usr/local/share/uqm/content/addons/remix/remix3.rmp
/usr/local/share/uqm/content/version

Other OS layouts should be similar. TODO: Expand.
