Tracks and Sounds (and others) in one folder accessible by multiple installs.

Post by Davy on 29th August 2014, 14:31

I have things set up so that I only have 1 Locations folder and 1 Sounds folder (actually in a seperate hard drive) but these are accessible by my multiple installs of GSC. There are several software programmes available to do this but the one I use is available here - www.softpedia.com/progDownload/Junction-Link-Magic-Download-37515.html

I have done the same with RFactor(over 1000 track folders in there) and GTR2. (rFactor doesn't need you to link the folders, you just edit the config.ini).

Basically you create a folder somewhere on your hard drive eg X:/GSC/GameData/Locations.
Put all your tracks in there along with the loose files eg commonmaps.mas, commonmaps3.mas, any TGA files etc etc
IMPORTANT: delete everything from your install's locations folder. (If this all goes tits up you can always put them back).
Use the linkmagic2 programme to link your new locations folder to your install's location folder.
When done, your install's Location folder looks like it has all the tracks but this is just a mirror of the new folder.
IMPORTANT: when installing a new track don't forget to put it in the new folder.

You can do the same with Sounds.

I'm not sure how this works with installers. I always extract to a spare folder and manually paste to the correct place.

If anyone wants a run-through we can do it on Mumble.

ONE LOCATIONS FOLDER FOR MULTIPLE GSC INSTALLS

Post by Christie on 26th August 2015, 19:25

HI GUYS,

I CAME ACROSS THIS EASY WAY OF SHARING ONE LOCATIONS FOLDER FOR ALL TRACKS IN MULTIPLE GSC INSTALLS.

i WOULD PRESUME THAT THE SAME WILL APPLY TO TALENT, VEHICLES AND SOUND FILES.
