help! cant detect addons with loader or console!
« on: August 13, 2004, 08:45:27 pm »

hi guys,
the trouble im having is with the loader, it doesnt seem to detect the addons (anymore) ive tried reinstalling it and everything. Angry
theres nothing wrong with the addons or where their located.
(in content\packages\addons\uqmremix) everything else works fine, but when i tried to do it through console command it comes up with an error saying "FATAL ERROR: content not available, running from wrong directory?"
i have a hunch that the error is comming from me just not knowing how to use dos commands. but i still cant get the freaking addons to work through the 1.1 loader either.
regards. Huh

Look at my second posting on this page. I think that should help.

i tried that and nothing changed...
i remember coppying ur-quan masters and putting it into a zip file (i was going to experiment) and when i did skrew the original up, deleted it and unziped my back up and put the addons back in, they didnt pick up in the loader. Angry

maybe if you have no more ideas you could give me greater insight on how you use the command prompt to do things.
(use examples(they help))
thanx

Does your directory structure look exactly like I posted in that other thread? No extra or missing files? And what directory did you install UQM in? Note that the content .zip files should stay zipped.

Some examples:

cd "Program Files\The Ur-Quan Masters"
uqm --help
uqm -n "C:\Program Files\The Ur-Quan Masters\content" --addon myaddon
