Updating the game
- Get the game from https://github.com/cataclysmbnteam/Cataclysm-BN/releases
- Unpack the game
configfrom old game directory to the new directory
- (Optional) Copy the
modsfrom the old game dir
Unpack the new game over old directory
Unpacking the game over old directory can cause duplicate JSON entry errors. If you really want to
do it, make sure to delete the old
data directory before unpacking the new version.
Sometimes data files are deleted in the core. New version of the game will not have those files, but unpacking an archive doesn’t delete the old files. Old files will still be read and loaded, which can overwrite new entries.
Have custom mods in
Put them directly into
mods directory, on the same level as
data. This directory doesn’t exist
by default, but the game will read it if it’s present.
This will allow you to copy the mods between game versions, while still allowing the “core mods” to update properly.
