directory management of Linux version

By default, ASC searches these directories for data files:


If you want ASC to use another directory:

  1. run ASC. It will complain about not finding the data and write a configuration file ~/.asc/ascrc
  2. edit it and specify your path there (searchPath1 to searchPathN).

The variable searchPath0 points to the directory where all savegames, modified maps etc. will be stored, which is by default ~/.asc/

If you don't even want ASC to use the ~/.asc/ directory, you can either run

  asc --configfile filename  

with filename being the path and name of a configuration file, or set the environment variable ASC_CONFIGFILE to the path of your config file.
