Migrating DFG to a mac/linux/recent DF release
If you want to play mac/linux/latest DF with the DFG modifications, here's a quick step by step tutorial on how to transfer the files.
1.Obviously, you need both the latest DFG download and the version of DF you want to play. Make sure it's the same version as the one listed next to the DFG download link! (or newer). Let's say the official DF download is in a folder named DFofficial\ and DFG is in DFGmayday\.
2.Delete DFofficial/raw (just in case) and replace it with DFGmayday/raw.
3.Replace DFofficial/data/art with DFGmayday/data/art
4.Copy embark_profiles.txt from DFGmayday/data/init to DFofficial/data/init.
5.Open DFofficial/data/art/ and remember the name of the tileset you like most.
6.Open DFofficial/data/init/init.txt and edit the following parts:
[GRAPHICS:YES] [GRAPHICS_WINDOWEDX:0] [GRAPHICS_WINDOWEDY:0] [GRAPHICS_FONT:yourtileset.png] <-Enter the name of the tileset of your choice here [GRAPHICS_FULLSCREENX:0] [GRAPHICS_FULLSCREENY:0] [GRAPHICS_FULLFONT:yourtileset.png] <-Enter the name of the tileset of your choice here [GRAPHICS_BLACK_SPACE:YES]
7.Open DFofficial/data/init/d_init.txt and edit the following parts:
8.Replace the colour settings (DFofficial/data/init/colors.txt) with the ones in DFGmayday/data/init/colors.txt
9.Update your save folders (if any) as described on the main page: first, copy DFGmayday/data/save/region***/ to DFofficial/data/save/
10.Delete DFofficial/data/save/region***/raw/ (the whole folder! "region***" is the name of the save folder you want to play)
11.Copy the /DFGmayday/raw/ folder into your DFofficial/data/save/region***/ folder.
12.The process is complete! You can now delete the old DFGmayday and rename DFofficial to DFG, as it has been fully patched.
