Divided level structure

Post by Tomi » Sat Nov 11, 2006 1:44 pm

Current level structure is too divided into per-installation dir and per-user dir. For example, if I want to use Level Structure from bd-fans.com for both of those directories, my "levelset" screen ends up with duplicate entry for each levelset category.

Solution proposal: (This isn't a proposal for implementation, but for behavior of fixed version.) If there are two level groups with same path, but one in per-installation dir and the other in per-user dir, consider them one (and show their sub-levelgroups/sub-levelsets under one menu item). Use levelinfo.conf from the per-user dir for the group, if present.

I wish this will make it into 3.2.3, if possible. I think it will be useful to fix this.

I don't understand everything you are saying... do you mean that you have created two main directories within the levels directory, which are called 'per-installation' and 'per-user'? And do both of these directories have the structure of bd-fans.com?

per-installation refers to rocksndiamonds-3.2.2/levels
per-user refers to My Documents\Rocks'n'Diamonds (or /home/user/.rocksndiamonds)

And I guess Tomi means that if you have a
and also
My Documents\Rocks'n'Diamonds\levels\somegroup
it will be double entries, instead these two groups should get merged into one, so that both sub-sets appears in under the same item when you choose levelset.

Exactly. Thanks for clarification (although I thought I wrote it clearly enough :? ).
I also said that in case that both directories contain levelinfo.conf (which is not required), the levelinfo.conf from per-user dir (My Documents/Rocks'n'Diamonds/levels) should be used.

I agree with this idea.
