Summary0000117: FRED and remembering directories
DescriptionOK, this is something that's been around since the first days of FRED. When I use the open file dialogue to open a mission, it stores that path. If I then use the open file dialogue for message sounds, it goes to the mission folder and I have to navigate to the appropriate folder. And of course the opposite is true. It gets pretty annoying after a while. Can it pleased get fixed to remember paths on a file-type basis?

Could you catalogue all open file dailog locations and the file types they corrispond to?

Er... is this what you want? Those marked * are found in the Events editor:

Open mission --> data\missions (fs2)
Open (head) ANI --> data\interface (ani)*
Open sound file --> data\voice\special (wav)*

Think that's all of 'em. Note that FRED will take me to the appropriate directory initially... but once a file is opened from that dialogue, that folder gets 'locked in' and will appear next time I open one of the open-file dialogues...

Im wanting a list of all the open files so that I can fix this problem for all of them at the same time.


diamondgeezer (reporter)

In that case, I don't know what you mean :)

Kazans FRED build actually doesnt remember ANY directories for me. It always resets to 'my files' when the file requester pops up. Now *that* is annoying.

Assigning to phreak since he fixed something similar recently.

I think its best to leave this until we manage to start working on wxFred2

Lumping this in with wxFRED per comments.
