[SOLVED] [Solved]changing data/dlcache dir

#1
My game directory is "H:\games\Xonotic" but in-game it downloads all custom maps to "C:\Users\Юра\Documents\My Games\xonotic". I haven't enough disk space on C: so I want to save all downloaded maps to "H:\game\Xonotic\data\dlcache". Is it possible to change dirs as I need?("gamedir" cvar doesn't work in this case)

Try to launch it with -userdir "H:\game\Xonotic". This will use that directory instead of C:\Users\Юра\Documents\My Games\
You can't have dlcache separate from the rest of the user data, unless you can somehow manage to bind a directory in H: to a directory in C: with something similar to Linux' symbolic linking or bind mounts. But as far as I know, symlinks in Windows are confusing and even dangerous at times (at least in XP).

mklink /D C:\Users\Юра\Documents\My Games\xonotic\ H:\game\Xonotic

or smth. Both directories should exist. Check if the current xonotic directory didn't become empty first. If it did switch the arguments to mklink :)
