Oxyd Data Files

Simon Glass-2
Dear Enigma Team,

I have the original oxyd games for Mac. In your manual and on Wikipedia it says
you can use the data files from these games with Enigma? Where do I put these
data files do this? Also a member of the Yahoo Oxyd Group has modified the data
files to skip landscapes.

If you are using Windows you can either copy the dat-files to the 'data'
folder inside Enigma's installation directory (e.g. 'C:\Program
Files\Enigma\data') or you can copy them to your personal directory
where your scores are saved, usually something like 'C:\Documents and
Settings\YourUserName\Application Data\Enigma'.

If you are using Linux/Mac OS  you can put the files either into a
system-wide directory like `/usr/local/share/enigma' or
`/usr/share/games/enigma' (depending on your
configuration) or into your personal directory where your scores are
saved, which is '/home/YouUserName/.enigma' by default.

Copy the following files to the directories mentioned above in order to
emulate the games (remember that case does matter on Unix-like operating
systems):

Oxyd 1     'oxyd1ibm.dat'
Per.Oxyd     'peroxyd.dat'
Oxyd Magnum    'oxydmibm.dat'
Oxyd Magnum Gold     'oxydmgg.dat'
Oxyd Extra     'oxydex.dat' (the original Oxyd Extra, not Oxyd Extra 2.0!)

I don't know if these files were included in the Mac OS versions of the
games, but you can probably get them at the Yahoo Oxyd Group.

Note that the emulation is far from perfect, some features/stones/items
aren't implemented. So some levels are solvable in a different way or
aren't solvable at all, but a lot of levels are emulated correctly.

kind regards
Malla
