Although you can change the directory structure, ChaosPro’s default directory structure and the meaning of each directory is as follows:
- Base directory
This is where the ChaosPro program itself (the executable) is located. The configuration file ChaosPro.cfg is loaded from this directory and written into it.
This directory is the default for loading and saving parameter files describing an animation and AVI files. The animation file requesters point to this location.
At program startup ChaosPro scans this directory for formula files (*.frm) containing formulas. This can be changed by specifying a different directory in the file ChaosPro.cfg
At program initialization this directory will be scanned for parameter files (*.par files). All parameter files found in it and all fractal entries are loaded. Again, this can be changed by specifying a different directory in the file ChaosPro.cfg.
At startup of ChaosPro this directory is scanned for *.map files describing palettes. All maps which are found in it are automatically loaded. Yet again, this can be changed by specifying a different directory / different directories in the file ChaosPro.cfg
That’s the default directory for saving and loading images.
