Post subject:  Installing OXPs

I'm sure this has been asked over and over again. I've downloaded a couple of OXPs, unzipped them and put them in my AddOns folder. I just can't get them to work. What am I doing wrong?

I'm running Oolite on a Mac.

Thanks in anticipation.

Ray

  • Run Oolite and select “Expansion Packs” in the “Oolite” menu in the menu bar. Does it open the AddOns folder with the OXPs in? If not, move them there. and restart Oolite.
  • If this doesn’t help, press 2 while docked and check if the option “Reset to Unrestricted Play” appears (at the bottom). If so, select it. OXPs are not used in strict mode.
  • If it still doesn’t work, restart Oolite and select “Show Previous Log” from the “Oolite” menu. Find the bit that starts with “[searchPaths.dumpAll]” (shortly after the bit with a lot of GL_stuff. This shows where it is looking and what is loaded.

Thanks for the quick response.

Selecting "Expansion Packs" does nothing.
I'm in Unrestricted Play.
...and Previous Log shows:-

So do I insert the OXPs into /Applications/Oolite.app/Contents/Resources then?

Definitely don’t do that. :-) The recommended location is ~/Library/Application Support/Oolite/AddOns

You can find some additional information for locations of the 'addOns' folder here. There should have been one in your original zip though. The location mentioned above by Ahruman is the best. That is inside the library of the user.

That's where they are .. but it still won't work.

Might be worth uninstalling Oolite completely and reinstalling with the standard options.

Isn't running oolite-update supposed to fix a broken install?

Now you have installed oolite, you can update it by running the
oolite-update script. A shortcut pointing at that script is installed
in /usr/bin. Running this updater will be considerably faster than downloading
a new package. It uses rsync, and so can update from any version to any later
version or even try to restore a broken Oolite installation
Granted, this is the Linux readme, so maybe useless.

Which version of the game are you running? Have you downloaded an install version or have you built from the source yourself? The first line of your log should carry that information. Looks something like this:
Code:
22:48:49.926 [log.header]: Opening log for Oolite version 1.76.1 (x86-64 test release) under Mac OS X Version 10.6.8 (Build 10K549) at 2012-08-18 22:48:49 +0200.
It's obvious that your AddOns directory isn't recognized. It should appear right below the
Code:
21:10:23.557 [searchPaths.dumpAll]: Unrestricted mode - resource paths:
/Applications/Oolite.app/Contents/Resources
What's not clear is the reason for this.

Another shot in the dark: are you sure you have named the directory correctly? It must be "AddOns": upper case "A" and upper case "O". Oolite is case-sensitive, therefore "Addons" won't do.

Another shot in the dark: does the game have the necessary reading permissions to access the directory?

While we are shooting. I re-read the wiki page. There is nowhere explained that '~/Library' means the library in the user area and not the general library. Fanatic users think it will be clear to everybody that '~' means user, but it might not be clear to all mac users.

It's definitely AddOns, but I have discovered one thing that seems curious. I have the oxp's in two locations:-
/Applications/Oolite 1.76.1/AddOns
and
/Library/Application Support/Oolite/AddOns

Yet, if I do a search for the oxp, it only finds it in my Downloads folder.

Does that give a clue?

OK, it was in the general library. I have now created a folder in the user library area.

IT WORKS!

Thanks for your help
