Can't enable artist debug mode + directly launch into track

Can't enable artist debug mode + directly launch into track

Postby centipawn » 12 Apr 2018, 11:50

Hi there,
I want to enable artist debug mode and followed these instructions: https://supertuxkart.net/Artist_Debug_M ... _Debugging .
Unfortunately, I could not find the correct config file ("config.xml" according to https://supertuxkart.net/FAQ) but just "data/stk_config.xml". Or is it the correct one,renamed since 0.9.x? However, it does not contain a line
<artist_debug_mode value="false" />
Adding this line between <config> and </config> didn't change anything...
Also, I'd like to know if (and how) I can directly launch supertuxkart into a certain track (by double-clicking "track.xml" for example) to inspect it in artist debug mode and not have to click through the UI every time I changed something on it (attempting to build my first noobish track these days).
I tried to find answers via google/forum search but without success...
Thanks for any help!
PS: Using Windows 8.1

Hi, you are probably looking in the wrong folder, take a look at this FAQ entry:

https://supertuxkart.net/FAQ
Where is the configuration stored?
Note that STK 0.8.2 and STK 0.9 both store their config in the "0.8.2" folder because the config is compatible.
On Windows: It is in %APPDATA%/supertuxkart/0.8.2 (you can enter that in the Explorer and it will take you there)

The folder you found is probably in "Program files" and is not the right location. Simply paste the path above in the address bar of windows explorer (The file manager)

Sorry, I'm not familiar with Windows folder structure.. the FAQ explained it right, I just didn't understand it :D
The second question has proven irrelevant, it works well for me just to restart the race after changing a track.
Thanks for your help

I don't think the "Restart Race" button re-loads the track, so you will be getting the old version, fyi.
Not a dev, but a huge fan of STK!

You're right, I was describing it imprecisely. I meant reconfiguring/reloading it.
