Extra content save location

Post by Ozbert »

I just discovered OpenRA a couple of days ago and am quite impressed by it. Nice work!

I downloaded the freeware ISO images for C&C and Red Alert and imported the video and music assets into OpenRA, but I've just noticed that while I have OpenRA installed under D:\Games\OpenRA, this extra content has been copied to C:\Users\Ozbert\AppData\Roaming\OpenRA\Content.

I keep my games on D: so that I don't need to reinstall them when I wipe my C: drive and reinstall Windows, which happens fairly regularly. But because this content is kept on the C: drive separate from the game engine, I've got to take the extra step of backing it up before doing a wipe+reinstall of Windows.

Is it possible to move this content under the OpenRA engine installation folder and still have it used by the game?

Thanks.
Oz

Yes, you can create a folder called "Support" in the installation directory. The game will then use that directory instead of the one on the C drive.
