Re: Factorio Mod Manager 0.2.1

I'm confused about something. None of the instructions for how to use FMM tell me how to get the "install using FMM" button on the Factorio Mods website. I have Java installed, I have FMM installed and running, but clicking "Install" on any mod on the website does nothing. What's up with that? The ...

Re: Factorio Mod Manager 0.2.1

Sorry guys I accidentally dragged the file without libraries. My build system makes 2 files and I got the wrong one.

Please go back to the release page and download it again.

Re: Factorio Mod Manager 0.2.0

I'm actually creating the directory. This works on any OS except Windows 7. I'll have a look on what's wrong there. EDIT: I see why it's happening now. I'm checking for directories but the service that listens for directory changes is launched before that happens. Simple fix. EDIT EDIT: Also I'm usi...

Re: Factorio Mod Manager 0.2.0

My Batch file is "java -jar "E:\Program Files\Factorio\ModManager\FactorioModManager-0.2.0.jar"" I think it's Windows 7 specific. I have a friend who b...

Re: Those wasted items at splitter dead-ends...

If you have valuable items on the belt, initialize it by putting worthless items on it until the dead ends of the splitters are filled with those. Collect all the residue at the end of the band and then you have your belt system ready for the valuable items.

Network Protocol

I've been wondering how the network protocol works, because I want to offer a feature in my mod manager that detects mods needed to play on a multiplayer server so it is able to install those mods before launching factorio. Anyway, I've used a network sniffer to get some of the handshake between cli...

Re: Factorio Mod Manager 0.2.0

Having an issue if the mods aren't in a zip file. I downloaded the 5DIM pack (contains all their mods in 1 zip) and because Factorio doesn't like mods packaged like that unzipped to the right location and the Mod Manager didn't copy them across. Yup, it doesn't support anything unzipped right now. ...

Re: What Are The Limits of Modding Factorio?

Kinda related, is it possible to modify behaviour / GUI outside of the game itself? That would be main menu and such.

I don't understand? I can push arguments to the executable in the MacOS folder with the --args flag. I can also directly launch the executable as if I used some command line tool.

[?] Command line arguments don't work on OS X

Tried the command line arguments listed in the wiki (https://forums.factorio.com/wiki/index.php?title=GameClient) on OS X and none of them work. Tested with factorio 0.11.22, 0.12, 0.12.1 Either with `open Factorio.app --args <startup args>` or with `Factorio.app/Content/MacOS/factorio <startup args`

I intentionally didn't want to include automatic updates because that's super messy when there's no central repository. I can however make it easier to update mods.

I don't think there is a way to tell the game to start a precise savegame though, that would have been great ! (maybe I will ask for this option, and for another one I need for mine, mouahahahaha ! :lol:) There is one to start a certain savegame in multiplayer mode, which is good enough. Might be a...
