Oni (folder)

From OniGalore
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a browseable representation of Oni's file hierarchy under Windows and macOS. You can use it to verify that you have all the needed files; it can also educate you on the details of what each file does, or how Oni finds its game data. Click on a folder's name to go down to that level of the hierarchy; click on a file's name to read more about that file.

The default location for this folder in Windows is C:\Program Files\Oni; there is no default location on Macs because modern Macs cannot run the installer on the CD-ROM, and so the user must drag the "Oni ƒ" folder manually to his hard drive.

In Windows Vista, four files - persist.dat, debugger.txt, key_config.txt & startup.txt are instead located at C:\Users\*your username*\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\Oni by virtue of the OS's handling of the game's installation. This does not apply to an installation of the AE in Vista.

Legend
Aqua Dot-Red.png = needed to run Oni; Aqua Dot-Yellow.png = created by Oni; Aqua Dot-Blue.png = unneeded files

Your initial Oni installation will probably have all the red and blue files. For files marked with yellow, Oni may not have seen a need to create them yet (follow that file name's link for more info).
