Paths not being written correctly; can't save my game as a result

Post by Sissa_Dreki » June 4th, 2018, 10:54 pm

I'm on Windows 7 Professional, using Battle for Wesnoth version 1.14.2 via Steam.

By default, my "My Documents" and "Steam" folders are not in their usual places, because of how I have my hard drives configured. As a result, the game wasn't able to properly locate most of the game's paths, though it did create the folders just fine.

My Documents is located in "D:\Documents\"
Steam is located in "D:\Steam for Windows\"
Game's root folder is "D:\Steam for Windows\steamapps\common\wesnoth\"

Paths and libraries are as follows:


The Battle for Wesnoth version 1.14.2 (2b7f951-Clean)
Running on Microsoft Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (6.1.7601)

Game paths
==========

Data dir: D:\Steam for Windows\steamapps\common\wesnoth
User config dir:
User data dir:
Saves dir: D:\saves
Add-ons dir:
Cache dir: D:\Steam for Windows\steamapps\common\wesnoth\cache

Libraries
=========

Boost: 1.66
OpenSSL/libcrypto: 1.1.0f (runtime 1.1.0f)
Cairo: 1.10.2 (runtime 1.10.2)
Pango: 1.30.1 (runtime 1.30.1)
SDL: 2.0.8 (runtime 2.0.8)
SDL_image: 2.0.3 (runtime 2.0.3)
SDL_mixer: 2.0.2 (runtime 2.0.2)
SDL_ttf: 2.0.14 (runtime 2.0.14)

Features
========

Experimental OpenMP support: yes
JPG screenshots: yes
Lua console completion: yes
Legacy bidirectional rendering: no
Win32 notifications back end: yes


Additionally, I get an error (which I believe is related), whenever loading the game or attempting (and failing) to install any addon:


Error validating data core.

Details:

Core ID: default
The ID is already in use.
Skipping the core.



Additionally, Addons always report that their installed version is "0.0.0" instead of the version I attempted to install, and cannot be found actually installed anywhere on my computer.

I would like to add that the folder "D:\saves" that the saves path is pointing to does not exist in that location, but rather under "D:\Documents\My Games\Wesnoth1.14\saves\"

I did not experience this issue when playing Battle for Wesnoth 1.12 with the same configuration on the same computer. If there is a way to manually correct the paths used, I could use that as a fix for this problem rather than needing to wait for a fix in the code; so, please let me know.

Fixed, using

--userconfig-dir "D:\Documents\My Games\Wesnoth1.14"


Many thanks, Ravana.
