Notepad++ need to get user for game submod, how to without typing the username?



  • Well, basically, I need help to be able to make 1 version of the code for each OS that game is available, being Windows, Mac and Linux, and I don’t want to type the code for each user, how can I do one version for each OS quoted?



  • Hi EdfNightmare,

    It would help to know what language your are writing in. Most programming languages have functions to identify the OS that they are running under. For example in Python:

    import sys
    import os
    import platform
    sys.platform
    ‘win32’

    os.name
    ‘nt’

    platform.system()
    ‘Windows’

    Of course, different operating systems will require different installations of the necessary libraries, compilers etc.

  • If I remember correctly, it’s Ren’Py



  • This isn’t a Notepad++ question, this is a coding question. Please refrain from discussing things unrelated to Notepad++ here. Reference cookie baking.



  • I agree. I was bad. The original post does not belong here and it would be more appropriate in a forum for the programming language involved.
