So, I started using RC9 (Linux build) about a month ago, in spite of my aversion to have both a stable install (v.47) and a release candidate on my computer. To 'psi29a', the issue I was having in v.47 with objects not showing up in-game got sorted. I was able to get them locked in and RC9 has been functioning mostly worry-free. I did notice one issue with dragging topic infos in the table when you have an open record. If you have anything in the script text box of the open record, it somehow gets overwritten with a neighboring record when passed through by dragging or something. I'm not sure what happened there. I didn't notice it until later when I went to trigger the topic in-game and got a different response than the one expected. Reordering records works fine when you close it and move them with right click->move up or move down.
But that's not why I'm here.
Yesterday, I went to add a content folder in the Data Directories tab of the launcher. Added it in fine, dragged it up to where it needed to be and then went to the Content Files tab. Now, here's where it gets tricky: I went down to the Content List selection box to change lists because I noticed when switching lists from one and back, it gets rid of the green highlighting of newly added content. I'm quirky, I know. So, anyways, I changed back to my desired list...and the only content available are the three project mods in my .local/share/openmw/data folder and one content file from the Morrowind folder. No Morrowind.esm, Bloodmoon, nothing. In spite of what the launcher.cfg says below:
Does that look right to you? It looks sort of buggered up to me. Damn thing's got me frustrated. I'm really not keen on adding and sorting all of my content, 66 folders...well, 65 because 'Wigs and Things' is still there, again. What's ironic is that I rarely utilize the wig shop. I only keep it in there because the wig master is a hot Redguard. But I digress...
I've also noticed this when running the CS:
The defaults.bin is the one located in the same folder as the launcher, the CS and the game shell scripts, correct?
Also, a question about content additions: Is it still necessary to manually add them to the .cfg file? The Data Directory tab handles that, right?
