Eternal lands User Folder

Recommended Posts

Is there any possible way to change where el accesses the user data in windows? I would rather set it to the game folder itself or somewhere other than the users\name\mydocuments\ location. I've tried to search and can't find any where that has it as an option to change. Thanks.

That's not at all what he wants to do...

 

What you are suggesting would move the game data (and binaries) to another directory, he wants to move the user data.

And the game data and binaries would usually be stored in a location for which you need admin access to modify the files.

So you wouldn't be able to store the user data there (unless you play as admin, which is a very bad idea).

 

And no, I don't know of any clean way to change the location of the user data...

you need reconfigure and rebuild el client

quote from EL sources:

/*

* Note: If you wish to use this functionality, be very careful.

* For the typical linux usage, you'd add the following to make.conf:

* FEATURES += CONFIGDIR=\"elc\"

*

* Note that you should not have a leading or trailing slash.

* If ELC is able to get your home directory; it, including a trailing slash, is put in front of CONFIGDIR.

* If not, there is no slash in front, so the failover is to use a dir in datadir (the current working directory).

*

* Unless you have a real need for it (such as having to maintain multiple configdirs) it's better to just use

* the default; this isn't really intended for just using a different name if you din't like "elc"

but... This solution will change tail only in user_path full string. It is no way to change full path in windows. EL client concatenate CSIDL_PERSONAL + "/" + CONFIGDIR

If you want to change path you need to change EL source code a bit. But it is illegal :)

Hey revi you had it right i just want my userdata in a different location. It would be really useful to be able to set it to the same folder as the game data as i could install the game on a usb stick and not worry about leaving game data on every computer i play on.
