[Solved] Parallel Installation 4.1 / 4.3

Postby `erdbeerblau » 09 Oct 2016 12:52

Hi all,


I could need some help.

How about running 4.1 and 4.3 parallel on one system (linux here)?

If I put the 4.3 on my system where 4.1 is installed I can start 4.3. But it points on the old .q3a-folder,
which was created by the 4.1. So e.g. I don't have a server list. I cannot create feavorites on so one. I have
to manually connect to a server. It also irritates, that I have only "one" console. In the console history I see the typed
commands of both games.

How to solve this? Any experience with this? Some place where I can edit the 4.3. to point to a different personal
folder e.g. .q3a_new?

Thx for hints & help ...

Hey, you cannot install 4.1 and 4.3 at the same folder.
install 4.1 and 4.3 in seperate folders and both should work fine! Sadly you have to do you 4.3 settings new, but if you used an autoexe with 4.1, you can simply copy and replace the one, which is in the 4.3 folder after installation.
Hope that helps.

Best,

Hi pcError,

thanks for hint. :D

Ofcourse I did not install in the same folder ;)

I solved the problem (for me). If anyone needs.
So it's about the local player folder which will be created / used. In this case both installations will use the same. e.g.

/home/[UserNameOfYourSystem]/.q3a

1. read the f* manual or learn how the game works or ask pcError ;)
2. just ignore the .q3a-folder.
3. create a seperate file autoexec.cfg in each of your game-folders. e.g.

PathTo/UrbanTerror41/q3ut4/autoexec.cfg
PathTo/UrbanTerror43/q3ut4/autoexec.cfg

This overwrites the settings of your .q3a/q3ut4/q3config.cfg

In the autoexec.cfg you minimum put the different master servers.

Another way is doing a script changing your default dir profile, so no mixing between the 2. Changing fs_homepath is all you need. Whatever you like more.

here an example of 4.1.1:
Code: Select all
urbanterror41  +nosplash +set com_soundmegs 128 +set com_zoneMegs 192 +set com_hunkmegs 900 +set fs_basepath /opt/urbanterror41/ +set fs_homepath $HOME/.urbanterror

and here 4.3:
Code: Select all
urbanterror +nosplash +set com_soundmegs 128 +set com_zoneMegs 192 +set com_hunkmegs 900 +set fs_basepath /opt/UrbanTerror43/ +set fs_homepath $HOME/.urbanterror43
