Hey Guys,

Occasionally, I find a player that improperly uninstalled previous MUSHclient and then they get a messed path because the old database is still there when they install our MUSHclient version.

Is there a fast a clean way I can tell people to fix that if they run into that situation?

Thanks!

I'm not sure what paths you are referring to, but they may well be in the SQLite3 database: mushclient_prefs.sqlite

This sort of stuff is in it:


sqlite3> select * from prefs;

...

DefaultLogFileDirectory|C:\Program Files (x86)\MUSHclient\logs\
DefaultMacrosFile|
DefaultNameGenerationFile|names.txt
DefaultOutputFont |FixedSys
DefaultTimersFile |
DefaultTriggersFile|
DefaultWorldFileDirectory|C:\Program Files (x86)\MUSHclient\worlds\
NotepadQuoteString|> 
PluginList|
PluginsDirectory|C:\Program Files (x86)\MUSHclient\worlds\plugins\
StateFilesDirectory|.\worlds\plugins\state\

...



You can remove or rename that file (mushclient_prefs.sqlite) and everything should go back to the defaults.

(Do that while MUSHclient is not running).

I don't understand what this means. What do you mean by "improperly uninstalled" and why would that have anything to do with "a messed up path"?

Sorry guys I should've said msp path.

I think people sometimes just delete their old mushclient instead of uninstall or they don't and install our download at a different location and database used for msp path is their old one.

The path used by the msp.xml plugin can be updated using the set_msp_path command.

The example given inside the plugin is:

set_msp_path d:\muds\mushclient\msp
