Code: Select all
$ ./FactorioLoader.lua /home/xxx/factorio/data/base/
Anyway, the good news is that I managed to add compatibility lua code to Foreman, so now it works for me. I also added support for the new zip-file mod format. I want to publish the source code somewhere and test if it works on windows, then I can post an updated version here.
Edit/Update: I've verified that the Foreman.exe file works on Windows for Factorio 0.11.6 after adding a fix for a long-standing bug that Nicksaurus fixed a long time ago, but I forgot to do the same in my source copy. I have not tested if it still works after downloading a zip file mod. It might crash because it can't find SharpZipLib. See attachment.
For Ubuntu Trusty, I've uploaded a new package earlier today. That one should work with zip file mods, at least it works for me. Maybe you need apt-get dist-upgrade instead of apt-get upgrade.
Almost forgot this: The code for this updated version is now at github: https://github.com/w-flo/Foreman
