A little problem with starting up.
« on: October 22, 2005, 02:32:56 am »

I've read the FAQ.

Had no problems with UQM on Linux.

Now I tried to play on WinXP.

I got this:

C:\Program Files\The Ur-Quan Masters>dir content
 Wolumin w stacji C nie ma etykiety.
 Numer seryjny woluminu: FC07-C344

 Katalog: C:\Program Files\The Ur-Quan Masters\content

2005-10-22  02:18    <DIR>          .
2005-10-22  02:18    <DIR>          ..

               3 katalog(ów)   9 761 189 888 bajtów wolnych

...

I even copied the files and switched to .zip so that itcan see them.. still..

C:\Program Files\The Ur-Quan Masters>uqm.exe
The Ur-Quan Masters v0.4.0 (compiled May 18 2005 16:47:39)
This software comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY;
for details see the included 'COPYING' file.

UQM detects wether it has the right dir by the presence of the 'version' file, which is missing in your situation.
