Separate installations for OpenXCOM Possible?
« on: October 25, 2015, 06:55:48 pm »
Would it be possible to have separate installations for OPENXCOM(If thats the right word)? For example, one for Piratez, one for Final Mod Pack, and one for my regular OpenXCOM?

Yes, just make different folders for each.

C:\Piratez\OpenXcom\... etc
C:\FMP\OpenXcom\... etc
C:\OpenXcom\... etc

You can even just put them in a main folder:

C:\OpenXcom\Piratez\OpenXcom\... etc
C:\OpenXcom\FMP\OpenXcom\... etc
C:\OpenXcom\Vanilla\OpenXcom\... etc

Just remember you have to duplicate the UFO/TFTD stuff in each as well.

You just need to set -user option to separate the configuration folders for each install. See https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,4016.msg52920.html#msg52920 for details

Yup it is. I have three - 1.0, latest nightly and Piratez. As someone said, use separate folders.
