  1. In the GUI, it's File - Select KSP Install, which brings up a dialog box that lets you add, remove and choose KSP instances, including setting a default instance to open on launch. On the command line, you can perform operations on the non-default instance by using the `--ksp` option (as opposed to the `ksp` subcommand), for example: ckan.exe install <modname> --ksp <name> The question of being able to set a download location is one that I'm working on currently (my first attempt was a complete disaster, so it may be a while) Hopefully, that'll be in the next release! Symbolic links are a functional workaround on all platforms, to my understanding. You mean the KSP log files? I suppose we could make an attempt to archive the current log when you launch KSP from within the CKAN GUI client. If you think that would be useful, please raise a feature request on GitHub
  2. No, it doesn't, from my understanding. If you have some code experience, and can think of a way to do it without breaking what it does, we welcome contributions! https://github.com/KSP-CKAN/NetKAN-bot is the specific repo. I don't know Perl at all, so I only know how it works by what I've been told.
  3. Have you got the latest CKAN 1.22.3? Yep, it would be useful, but given the way that our automatic indexing of new updates works, that information is just not available for the client. We'd need to maintain a whole separate data structure in order to compare the new repo data with past repo data, and then the client would need to spend time comparing every mod's current release with what it last knew as the current release, working out what to do with that information,... We'd basically need to program an AI to do what we do keeping the repo up to date so that it can understand some changes. I know that it seems like an easy thing to do, but trust me, it really isn't. If it was easy, we'd have done it by now. If you have deleted everything in your GameData folder (other than the Squad folder, obviously), then you shouldn't be getting any AD mods. I know I sound like a broken record, but try a Clean & Reinstall. (Or the relevant parts of it) It really does solve most problems in the CKAN client.
  4. Once the mods are fixed on Curse and the CKAN metadata updates, a Clean & reinstall will get the correct versions on all mods installed. (Or you can just uninstall and reinstall the specific mods) If the metadata is controlled by us rather than the mod author, we can also add an override to force the correct mod compatibility util Curse gets around to fixing it, and you can force installation of a particular version of a mod using the command line by saying: ckan.exe install <Modidentifier>=<version> (Make sure you get the full version string and the mod identifier from the mod details)
  5. I'm pretty sure that a Clean & Reinstall will sort that out Ok, I'd closed the PR so it won't get added to CKAN. As far as the TechTree config, I'm not sure where to get help for that, but this thread is probably not the best for it.
  6. You'll have to talk to the Spacedock folks. I believe they can turn it off. What's your mod's name? I'll delete the auto-generated PR if you would rather it is not listed. You mean the Squad mod that is now part of stock? You should just uninstall it. It's in stock, now.
  7. There's a missing comma in the .version file that's holding up CKAN update - https://github.com/CYBUTEK/KerbalEngineer/pull/129
  8. Hi, just popped in to let you know that the current versions of KerbinSide should now be available in the CKAN! If anyone can test the installation and let me know if there are any issues, that would be helpful. I've never used much of KerbinSide other than the Air Race.
  9. Ah, I see what's gone wrong, there. USITools min_version is "v0.9.0.0" in USI-Core, but there are no "v"s in the USITools version numbers. https://github.com/BobPalmer/CKAN/pull/26 should fix it.
  10. There's a "name" and an "identifier". Identifiers have no spaces, and relationships are all defined using the identifiers. If you're getting weird "Module Not Found" errors that make no sense, it means there's an difference between your registry.json and the data in the repo that is confusing the CKAN client. The Clean & Reinstall process is the best way to fix it.
  11. The CKAN AVC Transformer will only increase compatibility, not decrease it, so the compatibility from Curse gets turned into the minimum version.
  12. Ok, I've pushed out 1.22.3 to fix the problem where Linux clients were still attempting to use curlsharp for downloads. Changes since 1.22.2 Bugfixes [core] Fix broken Chicken bits from #2023 (#2058 by: politas)
  13. If the auto-update isn't working, just grab the new release from http://github.com/KSP-CKAN/CKAN/releases/latest

New CKAN Release - v1.22.2 "Mahia" Changes since 1.22.1 Bugfixes [CLI] Removed non-functioning code on available command (#1966 by: politas; reviewed: dbent) [core] Switch Linux and MacOS to native C# downloads (#2023 by: politas; reviewed: pjf) [NetKAN] Convert spaces to %20 in Curse URLs (#2041 by: politas) Features [Build] Use Cake for build and overhaul/cleanup build (#1589 by: dbent; reviewed: techman83, politas) [Build] Docker updates to support cake! (#1988 by: mathuin; reviewed; reviewed: dbent) [Build] Update Build packages (#2028 by: dbent; reviewed: Olympic1) [Build] Update Build for Mono 5.0.0 (#2049 by: dbent; reviewed: politas) [Build] Update Update build (#2050 by: dbent; reviewed: politas) [core] Update KSP builds (#2056 by: Olympic1; reviewed: linuxgurugamer) [NetKAN] Canonicalize non-raw GitHub URIs (#2054 by: dbent; reviewed: politas) Notes Windows users must have .NET 4.5 installed. libcurl is no longer used by CKAN for Linux or Mac. If you experience problems downloading, please contact us Mac/Linux/Mono users: please use the new cert-sync tool, to update mono's certificate store. Mac Users: There is now a MacOS CKAN App launcher available thanks to the wonderful Maxzhao. This release of the CKAN has not been tested on Mono 3.2.8. We highly recommend upgrading to the latest stable release of Mono from mono-project.com. Release image is licensed CC BY-SA 2.0, by Rodney Allen A first entry into the CKAN client release notes for @linuxgurugamer! Most of the changes in this version have been related to our build processes, so you won't see a lot of difference in the client. For anyone experiencing issues with libcurl downloads on Linux and MacOS, we've switched to native C# downloading now, so things should get better in that regard. We've implemented an environment variable you can set to go back to libcurl downloads, so let us know if you are having any troubles. Testing indicates there should be no issues, though. New KSP major release of course means mod authors are scrambling to catch up and release new versions of their mods. There are going to be a few hiccoughs in the next couple of weeks; please be patient with us as we struggle to get all the updates right.
