Ved Reconfiguration Tutorial
« on: 2 Aug 2016, 15:01 (5 years and 4 months ago) »
NOTE: THIS TUTORIAL APPLIES MAINLY TO LINUX, BUT COULD BE EDITED FOR MAC.

How to reconfigure Ved to use VVVVVV in Wine

Wine is the Windows Virtual Machine able to run exe files. If you want to use the Windows Edition of VVVVVV on Linux, but edit with Ved, which looks for a Linux level directory? Then FEAR NO MORE!

Step 1. Open VED as an archive in the Archive Manager. (Note: I'm using Ubuntu 14.04.)

Step 2. Find the file 'filefunc_lin.lua'. It's about 2.6 KB.

Step 3. Open filefunc_lin.lua in GEdit or another text editor.

Step 4. Go to Line 26. This is where things get complicated.

Step 5. Find your wine folder. Usually it's /.wine/.

Step 6. Find the path to your Windows Wine VVVVVV folder. For mine it was /.wine/drive_c/users/vultarix/My Documents/VVVVVV. The 'vultarix' is different on yours.

Step 7. Type in the path to the VVVVVV folder. NOTE: Not the levels folder. Leave the "levels" the same.

Step 8: For the second and third lines, paste the VVVVVV Levels folder path for your windows wine path.

Step 9: Save the filefunc_lin.lua and click OK (or Continue) at the prompt.

Step 10: You have reconfigured your Ved!

Screenshots/Video Tutorial coming soon maybe.

It's not necessary to edit the file in Ved, because Ved actually supports a custom VVVVVV folder path; all you need to do is open the config file, and set s.customvvvvvvdir. And as of Ved b12, this option can be set from within Ved itself.

What is the benefit of using the Windows version under Linux? It was relevant for Mac users back when the 2.1 beta was the latest (since it never had a Mac version), but now?
