HOW TO CHANGE THE LOCATION OF THE MOD FOLDER ON SF2

Recommended Posts

Hi!! As you may know, SF2 creates a mod folder in the C drive, inside "My Documents" by default. It's a folder called "Third Wire". Inside, there are three subdirectories: "Extracted filers", "StrikeFighters2" and "Utilities".  I have a way that works great to change its location.

 

 

1.BACKUP your mod folder (in my case C:\Documents and Settings\Administrador\Mis documentos\ThirdWire).

 

2.Copy/paste your mod folder in the desired location (for instance my E drive).

 

3.Delete all the content of the "StrikeFighters2" folder BUT two .ini's called "Version.ini" and "Options.ini"

 

4.Open the Options.ini and change the following lines:

 

[Pilot]
LastName=Pilot
FirstName=Administrador
Callsign=Phantom
Service=USAF
 
[Options]
Section=1
 
[GameplayOptions]

The "Screenshots" folder is located inside "StrikeFighters2" in the mods folder.
 
5.Do exactly the same with the Options.ini  that is located in the new mods folder that you have copied into your desired location.
 
6.Enjoy
 
I hope it works!!! I have a merged  SF2, SF2V,SF2E,SF2I,  patched Jul 2013, running on Windows Xp.
 
Questions and suggestions are more than welcomed!!!! I hope it's useful!!
 
 
                                  Regards,
