How do I change the T-engine folder that t-engine.exe uses?

#1 Post by happenstance »

Hello,

When launching t-engine.exe on my laptop, it references the T-engine folder in the installation directory, instead of the T-Engine folder in my user directory. I can work arround this by using t-engine launcher.exe and setting the home directory in the options menu, but I wonder how to change the behavior of t-engine.exe itself.

On my desktop t-engine.exe references the T-engine folder in my user profile, which I suspect is the default behavior. Reinstalling ToME on my laptop does not fix the issue. My efforts to determine how t-engine.exe decides which profile to use have failed thus far. I am unsure how I broke it on my laptop. Please help.

Sincerely,
happenstance

Uh that's weird, that folder is determined by what Windows tells it basically.
You can change it by passing "--home c:\foo\bar" parameters to it (which is what the launcher option does) but tha'ts it
