Portable install mod or feature?

Post by AuntiePixel »

Hi, Not sure if this mod capable or would need to be a feature. Is it possible to mod DFU such that the entire installation stays in one folder? The idea being that you could keep your DFU game on a single USB drive to take with you and play on any computer, or a single folder in your dropbox so you can easily keep your game synced across multiple computers.

Symlinks are a workaround for the dropbox syncing, though kind of a fuss to set up. I was wondering if a single solution option were possible.

Thanks

That question has already been asked and answered here: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=3798
and more recently here viewtopic.php?f=5&t=4148

TL;DR: Daggerfall Unity is just using the file system layout (and underlying mechanisms) provided by the Unity Engine
