Documentation: Including Games And Mods

Game definition files: (Outdated)

These files link "game tags" to search paths and Steam application IDs.
They define the tags you use with Game Data Include Files.

These files exist in the "content" directory under Synergy.
They use the ".dat" file extension.
You may edit them with Notepad, as long as you know what you are doing.

File Format

"GameName" { "tag" "mygame" "mod" "0" "path" "mypath" "id" "0" }

Creating a new game definition

When creating a new game definition, make sure your "tag" does not match an existing one; duplicate entries are NOT loaded.
Game tags are limited to 8 characters, so keep them short.

Default game tags are:

hl2
Half Life 2
ep1
Half Life 2: Episode 1
ep2
Half Life 2: Episode 2
sin
SiN Episodes: Emergence
meta
Minerva: Metastasis

Set "mod" to "1" to tell Synergy that the "path" can be found in the "SourceMods" directory (if you are using Steam) or "/orangebox" (on dedicated servers, Windows and Linux).

"Path" must be set to the directory name of the game or mod you wish to include.

If your Game Definition is for a game (NOT a mod), then "id" must be set to the appropriate Steam application ID.
If you are loading a mod, the "id" key is NOT required and should be left out ("mod" should also be set to "1" then)
