Linux client and multiple user configuration hack/workaround

Linux client and multiple user configuration hack/workaround

Postby yion on Mon Aug 11, 2008 1:49 am

I crafted simple linker hack that allows you, store some of game files in ~/.auteria directory (possible to override that to any aribtrary directory). From technical point of view it is wrapper for open() from libc, that substitues paths, if that tells you anything. More details on how it works in sources. :P
It is nothing sane or user friendly in any way, but seems to work reasonably well for ME, thus i wanted to share with you (in case it may be useful for someone).
Please be warned, that it may break things in unexpected way tho.
I have not tested if it will work with linux client on freebsd, but nothing obvious stops it IMO.

I wont provide binary for it, you will have to compile it youself.
If you want it see how to make it check: http://github.com/piotrrak/auteria-path-hack/tree/master/README

If you have any questions/problems/bugs, I will be glad to help you.

Have fun!
