Where are the "Savegames" (linux)??

Postby Cooper83 » Tue Jul 05, 2005 6:34 pm

Hi,

i am actually play uplink on my notebook (linux), but now i want to play it on my desktop pc (linux). When i copy the uplink directory from notebook to pc, will i get the agent-data-file too ? Or were these files somewhere else on the system ?

If it's the same as in windows, which it is I think, then you just have to copy the install dir.

I don't think it is.

I think it is in /home/username/.uplink/

There you'll find your user files.

Do you have Uplink on Linux? Windows has those maps too, but has the usr files in the install dir > c:/prog~/uplink/users/.

I know I could do the whole ~ thing, but I wanted to be clearer, just in case the guy didn't know that ~/ means home.

Darwinia on linux is cool too. Now to see if I can get Simcity 3000 to hold its settings.. dream on..

I have a question. Can I use my Windows savegames in Linux too?
And how could I do that?

Copy the .usr file and put it in the appropriate directory under Linux I would have thought.

Canned reply: Please don't bump dead topics.

Answer: The saved games are compatible between Linux and Windows (unless Ambrosia changed/broke something, I'd imagine Mac saves would work, too). All you have to do is mount your Windows drive (many distros will allow you to mount NTFS volumes now, if you use it) and copy the saved game files wherever they get stored on Linux (which, according to this thread, is "~/.uplink" but I don't know from experience).

If you're unsure how to mount other hard drive partitions or cannot mount the partition for whatever reason, you can always ZIP up the saved game file and put it on a floppy. Uplink saves compress VERY well.
.what.
