    Microsoft Kodu Game lab

    Does anyone know if it is possible to change the default save location for this product for all users? I know there is the configuration tool where you can alter the save location but that only works for the user you are logged in as at the time. I need it to be able to saved to each user's home folder.

    Thankls

    Change the start-in variable on the shortcut you're deploying.

    e.g.

    kudo.png

    That's how I did ours when it was deployed.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    There is no way it'd run on Linux, it needs Microsofts XNA Framework for Graphics, and DirectX and the C++ runtime, and not all of them have been re-enginered by the Wine project.

    Hi Steve,

    I have tried this and it makes no difference at all, it is still saving on the C: drive. The only way I can get it to save on the network is to manually change the path but as I said this only works for the user you are logged in as.

    There must be a file you can edit somewhere to overide the settings so it works for all users

    Are you using redirected appdata? Is it saving for you in C:\users\"username"\documents\savedgames\boku etc? If so it shouldn't with redirected afaik.

    Ah guess that's the issue. Not sure how to redirect it if you're using local appdata I'm afraid
