RPG-X UE saving condump in roaming
« on: May 11, 2014, 06:57:46 pm »

Not sure if this is normal behavior, but I noticed that my condumps are now saving in my Roaming folder (i.e. C:\Users\[usernamehere]\AppData\Roaming\RPGXEF\RPG-X2) instead of in my RPG-X2 directory (F:\Programs\The Last Outpost RPG-X Ultimate Edition\RPG-X2).

If I remember correctly, in my pre-UE install, it always used to save condumps to the latter directory. Is this a bug? And if not, is there a way to get it to save to the latter directory?

I'm running Windows 8.1 64 bit and have the latest version of RPG-X UE installed.

That's certainly unintended behavior, however, I'm not sure how to force it to dump to your install.

Does RPGXUE set FS_HOMEPATH? That might be the source of this. rpgxEF's desire to use roaming instead of its installation directory is one of the banes of RPG-X development :P.

No, it doesn't. Unless that can be forced in autoexec, I won't be able to fix that for existing installs.

You should set it in the shortcut - it should add "+set FS_HOMEPATH [install directory]" at the end of each shortcut. That may fix it, I think... if not we'll have to try something else.

I can't do that to existing installs with a patch unless I can force it in autoexec.

It has to be set before the game starts, so it has to be from the shortcut.

Minutias, can you try setting FS_HOMEPATH manually for your shortcut, and see if it changes anything? That way we will know if we need to go through the trouble of patching it or not (or just fixing it in the next patch).

Hmm, it's still saving in the roaming folder. Did I type the target correctly?

Code: [Select]
"F:\Programs\The Last Outpost RPG-X Ultimate Edition\rpgxEF.exe" +set fs_game RPG-X2 +set vm_ui 0 +set vm_game 0 +set vm_cgame 0 +set FS_HOMEPATH F:\Programs\The Last Outpost RPG-X Ultimate Edition\
EDIT: While the game is launching correctly, I also seem to have lost all my bindings, character customizations, and settings...

It needs to be in quotes or it will break at the first space.

Code: [Select]
"F:\Programs\The Last Outpost RPG-X Ultimate Edition\rpgxEF.exe" +set fs_game RPG-X2 +set vm_ui 0 +set vm_game 0 +set vm_cgame 0 +set FS_HOMEPATH "F:\Programs\The Last Outpost RPG-X Ultimate Edition\"
