How to Install Dungeon Craft
« on: June 23, 2016, 10:40:13 AM »
I am trying to keep my version of Dungeon Craft up-to-date. Here's what I do to create a new Dungeon Craft Installation:

First, go to Source Forge:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/uaf/files/

and select "Download complete_Starting_Package_2_17.zip (16.1 MB)"

This gives me DC version 2.17 with all the databases and a Template Design I can make copies of.

Next, go to Paul's UAF web site:
http://www.dianneandpaul.net/UAF/

and download the latest version of the Editor and Engine.

DungeonCraftEditor_244.zip
DungeonCraft_245.zip

Is there anything else I need to do? Is a new "starting package" uploaded every time the databases are updated? Thanks for any assistance.

Hi Nol. :) Good question.

I believe you have everything, though you might want to check the databases in this thread to see if the databases are newer.

I will work on having another release up on Sourceforge after we fix the bug you just reported.
I will also create a sticky in the FAQ forum with instructions and links.

Not that you or anybody else cares, but I am not a fan of the SourceForge website - it is difficult to use if you are web-based only and/or use a Windows machine. Don't get me wrong, they provide an incredible service and the vast majority of my interactions with their support have been great.

Here is the new FAQ thread:

Thanks. I will make sure that my databases and resources are up-to-date as well.

The combat screens are messed up, because the 2.17 complete starting package had the old versions of "config.txt". You can download the latest version of the "config.txt" from this thread:
