Separate shortcuts for UFO and TFTD
« on: April 18, 2019, 06:03:00 pm »
Currently, to swap between both games, one must change in-game settings.
Is there any command, something like "openxcom.exe -mod ufo1", that can be added to shortcut to swap mods without using ingame settings?

You can create copies of the options.cfg file for different sets of mods as that's where the list of mods you have active are saved. Then you can run

Code: [Select]
openxcom.exe -config "/path/to/folder/containing/the/config/file"

to run different configuration files. Note that you need to put the file in a separate folder, as the game assumes the path passed to it is a directory containing the file, not the file itself.
