using PE in sub folder


Recommended Posts

Not an important matter, but can the pfbuild2005.mdb be used in a sub folder and import/export the commondb.res file to that sub folder instead of the HUCE root folder. I've tried but can't get it to work, I just would prefer to leave the commondb files alone in the root folder.

Nope, not possible without modifying the PE, wishlist item I'd say. You can however create multiple directory structures...

 

C:\Games\HC\Databases\HCDB-110418\

within there copy in

start_edit.bat

end_edit.bat

commondb.res (of the DB you want to edit)

commondb.rsr (of the DB you want to edit)

pfBuild2005.mdb

pfData2005.mdb (or whatever you data file name is)

db_utils folder (copy in as a subfolder)

commondb folder (copy in as a subfolder)

 

Bear in mind I haven't tried this but I expect the toughest part is making sure each time you open the PE that it is pointing to the right data file. I'm guessing this approach will fit in well with your use of the launcher as well for specifying the database.

I'll give it a go, thanks
