Opening OOTP Config Files
Posted by - NA -, Last modified by Gary Breckenridge on 01 December 2014 06:46 AM

OOTP has a handful of "behind-the-scenes" configuration files that can be used to change game settings. In general, you should never need to access these files, but if you ever need to access them, for example, based on a technical support issue, then here's how!

If OOTP can launch and get to the main screen, use these steps to get to the config files:

  1. Launch OOTP.
  2. Click on Game Preferences.
  3. Click on the button entitled Open config folder (in OOTP 11, this is on the Troubleshooting tab, and called "Open folder containing file 'app.cfg') and proceed through the warning message. A folder will open with the configuration files inside (app, engine, etc.).

If OOTP will not launch at all on Windows, use these steps to get to the config files:

  1. Open the Windows Start menu, click on "Run" and enter %appdata%, and press Enter. (In Windows 7, enter this into the "Search Programs and Files" box.) A Windows Explorer window should open with hidden Windows application data.
  2. Navigate to Out of the Park Developments --> OOTP Baseball (version #) --> config. A folder will open with the configuration files inside (app, engine, etc.).

If OOTP will not launch at all on a Mac, use these steps to get to the config files:

  1. From the Finder, select Go --> Go to Folder... --> then paste this into the window: ~/.Out of the Park Developments/OOTP Baseball (version #)/config, and then click Go. (Example: ~/.Out of the Park Developments/OOTP Baseball 10/config if you're running OOTP 10). A folder will open with the configuration files inside (app, engine, etc.).

If OOTP will not launch at all on a Linux machine, use these steps to get to the config files:

  1. Open a Terminal window. This should be a menu option under System or Accessories. (It can be different under different Linux distros, so consult your distro documentation if you cannot find it.) A window should open up giving you access to the CLI (command line interface) where you can type a command.
  2. Type cd and then press Enter to make sure that you are in your user's home directory.
  3. Type cd "/home/(user name)/.Out of the Park Developments/OOTP Baseball (version #)/data/config/", and press Enter. Don't leave out the period or the quotation marks! You can verify this by typing pwd and pressing Enter. The output should look something like this:

    username@computername ~/.Out of the Park Developments/OOTP Baseball 10/data/config
    $ pwd
    /home/username/.Out of the Park Developments/OOTP Baseball 10/data/config
  4. Type ls -ls and press Enter to display the contents of the current directory. There should be several configuration files inside (app, engine, etc.).
