UQM+
« on: June 13, 2010, 02:17:56 am »

UQM+ sounds very interesting and fun. The one problem is it won't run.

This is the output I get when I run it:


I have UQM+ in the same directory as UQM 0.6.2. I'm not sure what to do with the "lbm" directory, but I tried just putting it in content\.

Should I maybe install an older version of UQM for this?

UQM+ is based on UQM 0.3 (or, to be more specific, the CVS version labelled 0.31), so you should probably install UQM 0.3 (or at least the content) and then put UQM+ in the same directory.

The error "Could not copy default key config to user config dir: No such file or directory." is what UQM used to say when running it for the first time but with the content missing.

I can't seem to find version 0.3. Does anyone by any chance know where to find it?

EDIT: Nevermind, I think I've found it. Smiley

You should also take a look at the extended version if you want changes. Or maybe you already have?

Yeah, I have it. The thing about UQM+ that interested me was not changes, but difficulty settings. Unfortunately, I have discovered a fatal error: hyperspace travel doesn't cost fuel. And of course there's the fact that you have to manually edit the controls, rather than having the convenience of a menu interface.

Extended Edition, on the other hand, only adds some small trinkets, and presumably because it was modded from an unstable version of UQM, it has a bad habit of crashing every once in a while.
