Creating multiple Darkraidiant custom shortcuts issue:


Recommended Posts

So I have multiple set of of shortcuts for TDM/DR for the normal Darkmod and SVN folders -

 

Normal:

  • TDM - E:\Darkmod\TheDarkMod.exe +set com_allowConsole 1 +set r_fullscreen 0 +set fs_currentfm myfm
  • DR - "C:\Program Files\DarkRadiant\DarkRadiant.exe" fs_game=darkmod/fms/myfm

Svn:

  • TDM - D:\TdmSvn\TheDarkMod.exe +set com_allowConsole 1 +set r_fullscreen 0 +set fs_currentfm myfm
  • DR - "C:\Program Files\DarkRadiant\DarkRadiant.exe" fs_game=tdmsvn/fms/myfm

The issue is I alternate between Normal and Svn, and each time I have to edit the paths in DR -

Is there anyway I can set/get DR to change its paths on the fly as per a shortcut, without prompting me each time..?

Nope wont work,l tried that. The issue DR is having is with the engine path, due to space I have the main game on my E:\ drive and the SVN folder on my D:\. once I get a bigger SSD it wont be an issue but thats a long way off.

Maybe this is iffy advice that will be looked down on, but you can hex-edit the folder reference used by DarkRadiant EXE (in "Application Data" folder) and have many different versions of DR with many different settings there.

Just grab your favourite hex-editor, make a copy of the EXE and open it up, and find the reference "DarkRadiant" that comes after "cannot find APPDATA environment variable" (in later versions it's the reference just before it), and change it to whatever you want. So far I haven't found it has broken any functionality although I can't guarantee that, but one thing you need to make sure of - keep the reference the exact same amount of characters, so for example call it "BarkRadiant" or "LarkRadiant". :P

 

You don't need to make a whole other folder for it, just a different EXE in the same folder, and it will use the different settings.
