Port Saves from Mac to Linux

Post by wacrozier » Mon, 16. Jun 14, 20:36

Hi,

Is it possible to use game saves from the Mac Beta version of X3: Reunion to the Linux version? I copied across the EgoSoft directory to ~/.config/EgoSoft on Linux but they do not appear to be recognised by the software.

Thanks,
wacrozier

@wacrozier
Yes, though you should put them in "~/.config/EgoSoft/X3/save/"

Graphical Issues Mac Book Pro retina

Post by lachild » Sun, 14. Sep 14, 22:54

Hello,

I installed X3: Reunion just a couple of days ago and have been playing for hours now. So far the game runs pretty smooth.

Just wanted to report a couple of minor bugs. First the retina screens have a huge resolution for the size of monitor on these things making the text unreadable, in order to fix this I have to tell x3 to run at a much smaller resolution. This is fine. The problem comes when I tab out of the game to open up a browser window and then come back. It seems that on return the game tries to set the resolution back to the lower setting but it doesn't make it there. I'm still in the higher resolution and the screen is all messed up around the edges.

The next minor thing, is the steam community screen (shift-tab) is really nice. I like this feature. Problem is there is no mouse cursor here. It's invisible. This makes using this screen virtually impossible to use.

Other then these two items, so far the games running rather nice. Thanks for porting this over.

I got X3 reunion from steam, and I can't get the bonus pack. I tried the downloads here but there is only windows version. I really want that cockpit mod. when i go to download the bonus pack from steam, it just says invalid link.

It's mentioned in the first post;p "Documents/EgoSoft/X3/save/" in your home directory.

Regarding the other issue is it reproducible or is it random?
Meaning if you have a savegame load it, dock, then it always happens?
If yes then send me that savegame (email in first lines of the first post).

@lachild
The font/resolution is unfortunately a game limitation.
The switching issue is probably a problem with SDL2, I'll see what I can do (when is actually the main problem) about updating it, which may or may not solve the problem:(
The overlay and cursor is a nightmare, I've tried a bunch of things and I'm honestly not sure what the end result was, it's possible that I fixed it in the end for TC/AP and just didn't update R, I'll take a look when I can.

saves folder, freezing, bonus q

Post by lordolf » Thu, 22. Jan 15, 22:16

Hi,
1) Strange but I cant find Egosoft folder in Documents or anywhere else.

2)about freezing- basically it only happens a few seconds after "announcments from annoying lady" with cca proability 1/4 . I have learnt to avoid it that u quicky browse trade items-it cancel announcment and game doesnt freeze.

*3) offtopic-whats the best way to exchange cargo from ships(get cargo from multiple captured ships to you ship)
I have bunched of ships to sale and they have got items-i dont know if it is cashed if u sell the ship so i want to sell it seperately. If u enclose ship and
select EXCHANGE CARGO but seems just to put cargo from current ship to the other one and no vice versa. So current way for me is just manually eject item by item each ship. THX

Just updated to the new Mac App Store version (2.5.5?) and scarily, it seemed to lose all my saved games. (If there's one game you don't want to lose your progress in, it's an X3 game). Fortunately, it didn't delete them, it's just now looking in a different folder. So, copying the saves from:

~/Library/Application Support/X3 Reunion/Egosoft/X3/save

to:

~/Library/Containers/com.vpltd.X3ReunionEN/Data/save

worked for me. Whew! Hope this helps someone!

Is anyone else having problems saving settings (in particular controls) since the last update in the Mac App Store version?

I can change the settings temporarily, but every time I quit they revert back. I also tried creating a new profile, but that causes the keyboard to stop responding until I quit and relaunch.

Had no problems changing and saving controls until the most recent version.

@whooo_me

Ohh, yes for Reunion currently that will be the case...
I'll be fixing this, unfortunately the only workaround would be to edit the profiles by hand, which isn't easy to do since it's just a bunch of "magic number pairs".
Alternatively if you still have them, you could copy the files from your vpltd folder, which I'm guessing is ~/Library/Application Support/X3 Reunion/Egosoft/X3/DataChanges/profiles, in general search for a "profiles" folder. Grab the files and put them in /Applications/X3 - Reunion ML/Contents/Resources/profiles.

@timon37

Many thanks! It's good to know that's being fixed, particularly when it's such an old game.

I'm not sure copying the old profile will be much help, as I'm mostly trying to set up a new joystick (Thrustmaster Warthog) which never was used with the older version.

I can put up with re-configuring the controls for a while, as long as a fix is in the pipeline. Thanks again!

Yes, sorry I still haven't updated the thread for the app-store version.

The app-store version has sand-boxing so a few things are a bit more difficult.

The per-user data is in <user-home>/Library/Containers/com.vpltd.X3ReunionEN/Data/
The config file is <user-home>/Library/Containers/com.vpltd.X3ReunionEN/Data/.config.yaml
note that the file itself is hidden.
Savegames are in <user-home>/Library/Containers/com.vpltd.X3ReunionEN/Data/save
