How do the vfs_config.ini files exactly work?[message #357580] Sat, 22 June 2019 01:53 Go to next message

It's because I've just downloaded 1.7 GB large 7609en+Modpack.7z package with several mods integrated into a single JA2 root folder but I don't seem to be able to ini-customize every mod in it, because not all of them seem to be using any of the different JA2_Options.ini files that the ini-editor allows me to edit.
So am I right in supposing that the vfs_config.ini of a particular mod contains the information where to find the ini-file it uses?
And could it be possible (and recommendable as well) to edit those vfs_configs so all the mods in the package will use the same ini-file so I can customize them all at the same time just by editing one ini-file? For that would be the most convenient thing to me for sure!
Thanks in advance!

What tells me I am playing JA2 1.13 too much?
Well, when I catch a burglar in my house and after knocking him down I find myself sneaking circles around him to get some AGI out of it...

VFS docs
Common ini settings in this modpack are located in Data-User, they work for all mods. Also MERGE_INI_FILES option in Ja2.ini lists all ini files that can merge options, so you don't need to set all options in Data-User, just those you want to change.

Also there is readme file in the folder where you downloaded this modpack from, which clearly says:
Quote:
Data-User folder:
-----------------
It is applied to all mods and used last before the profile folder, it's good place to store your settings that you want to apply to all mods.

By default it has:
- ambient sector sounds (works with Ja2+AI if ENABLE_SSA = TRUE in Ja2_Options.ini)
- more battle sounds for enemy (works with Ja2+AI)
- new interface from Vengeance:Reloaded mod (useful when tactical panel feature from Ja2+AI is enabled)
- improved weapon sounds
- more loadscreen hints
- new explosion and fire animations
- balanced ini settings
- modified BULL.STI to use Red Tracers feature

You can safely delete all files and folders from Data-User folder or change any settings in ini files to your preference.

Thank you very much for the very accurate reply! And thank you especially as the question seems rather off topic to me now! Will consult readme next time before asking. eek
