Symlinks and 0.1 client?

Post by Ces » 25 Aug 2008, 20:20

I just compiled the 0.1 client from svn, seemingly without problems. I have a symlink in the data directory pointing to tmwdata, which works fine with the 0.0 client.

Running 0.1 exits (when pressing “New” in the Account and Character Management dialogue) with the following error entered in the log:
[19:19:32.03] Warning: Failed to load graphics/sprites/emotions.png: Symbolic links are disabled
[19:19:32.03] Error: Unable to load emotions!
Is it possible to circumvent this, as it’s so much more convenient with symlinks?

The official way to point to client data is with the -d or --data switch. If you got that far in data loading, you should be fine.
