Deleting campaigns?

Post by irrevenant »

It would be really handy to be able to delete campaigns. Either be under the campaigns screen or the Add-Ons screen (or both) seems like a sensible place for the option.

Is it really that much work to go to your user-data directory and delete them by your own hand?

That depends on your operating system. ;)

Yeah, this would make a safe and convenient way to clean up the list.

What user-data directory? What's that? Where is it? What do I have to do?

There's more or less your answer.

Whoops, I didn't think about it like this at first (Yeah, you know, my OS is Windows...). Well, then I think it's a reasonable idea.

It isn't actually more work on other Operating Systems as it is on Windows. The thing is that it would ease things for ordinary players, I mean players who just play and don't really want to care about such details, and by that questions like zookeeper mentioned are less likely to keep your thoughts away from more important stuff.

I like this; I think I'll see if I can put something together for testing. May take some time though.

Good idea. If a program can add something, then the program should be also able to remove it.

I know how to delete a campaign by hand, and I would still use the feature if I wanted to delete a campaign.
And probably not every user of BfW knows how to delete them by hand.
First read, then think. Read again, think again. And then post!

I agree on this totally.
Also I think clicking on something is more convenient than
cd into a dir and
rm-ing it more so since a user probably has to invest a little time to
find out where this stuff is, and we all know sometimes users make
mistakes too ...so this idea is very nice IMHO :>

I've got a button deleting the appropriate campaign's files and cache data thus far. Main remaining objective is removing the campaign from ingame memory. Hooray progress.
