Change location of .yawcam directory?

Post by mernst » Thu Mar 11, 2010 6:55 am

Is it possible to change the location of the .yawcam directory? My user files are on a network drive, but I would like the .yawcam directory to be on the local machine.

Yes, you can put it in a different directory - edit the service_profile.cfg file in the main Yawcam directory to show the path to your directory.

Yes, this is possible as theoldschool says.
You will have to edit the service_profile.cfg. But also the launcher.cfg.

Edit the line that end with:

Code: Select all

yawcam.Main
so it now ends with:

Code: Select all

yawcam.Main service
Yawcam will then look for the .yawcam directory located at the path specified in the service_profile.cfg.
