Mmmm... I suspect you didn't really follow the instructions inside the file
... but of course I'm sure you've actually READ it.
Just reminding: the file describes two alternative install modes
To INSTALL the Dark Rainbow OXP *ALONGSIDE* an already working version of neoCaduceus OXP:
[ . . . ]
To INSTALL the Dark Rainbow OXP *WITHOUT* keeping a working version of neoCaduceus OXP:
[ . . . ]
Well, before helping you any further I need to know WHICH
of the install modes you wish to follow. Maybe I can make it a bit more clear by stating that the first install mode will make both the Caduceus AND the Dark Rainbow available for purchase, whilst in the 2nd mode you'll find only the DR and not the Caddy.
Other than that, I reckon that the instruction below, which I put on that same file...
2. Install the Caduceus OXP in the normal fashion.
... might be a bit too terse for someone who has been absent from the forum - and of the game itself
- for a long while (I checked your most recent posts and BTW, took note of your Misjump Inducer discussion - I liked that, and intend to take a closer look at that myself
But anyway, the correct form to install an OXP is to unzip some WHOLE whatever.OXP folder
directly below the
folder. Stating this in a different way: under the
folder you should have a number of folders, and each of these folders' name should end in
(upper/lower case is irrelevant under Windoze).
Each of these .oxp folders should have been created preserving the entire subfolder structure
that lies within the downloaded OXP archive file (which could have been a .ZIP, .RAR or .7Z one).
and then copied the renamed file
From what I said above, you'll see that there's not a file
to be copied anywhere (other than 3 very specific file replacements described in the install file), but rather an entire folder
It follows that, depending on which of the above install modes you choose, you should end up with either one or two .OXP
folders under the
And always remember: every time you've done whatever change under the
folder, your next restart of Oolite should be done with the
Shift key held down
- that's in order to refresh Oolite's disk cache with your brand new changes (which otherwise might not be totally seen by the game).
I hope there's enough material above for you to figure out
... return the ball again whenever you're ready.
Cheers and good luck
