Hey crazy kids

Trying to change the location of a scene file, but still grab objects from previous Content Directory. This works when you bring objects into a scene from outside, but I can't get the objects already in the scene to be saved with an absolute path, even when I browse to them and re-save the scene.

Both scene and objects need to stay where they are - anyone have any ideas?

Thanks

Howdy. Since LW's content manager doesn't work as expected i sometimes have these problems too. The easiest way is to open the scene file in a text editor and change paths there.

I would except there's 480 of them and in different sub-folders... but I'll try the find & replace function - Thanks

Just take care to use unique names in the find and replace function, otherwise you can mess up the file very quickly (of course you have to make a copy of the file first).

I'll try searching for 'objects/' and replacing it with the absolute path of the other directory, down to objects. That should work with all the sub-folders too.

:goodluck:
