OK so there are no Command Lines... but how do I direct my configs for 9.3 to a specific location (like I did in the previous CFM incarnations)? Or does LW now identify configs with the correct version of the app? Just checking, 'cause when 9.4 rolls around I don't want to it sharing 9.3's configs.

...And where are the new configs written to?

Thanks guys.

LW UB operates according to standard Macintosh directory rules, ie. single user support files go in ~/Library/Application Support/LightWave3D and preference files go in ~/Library/Preferences/LightWave3D.

As for config files, I guess that 9.4 (or whatever comes next) will simply read the existing preferences files from 9.3. Updates to Mac apps tend to be viewed just as updates, not as replacements, if you see what I mean.

Unless, of course, if internal coding makes the update create new preference files in a new location...

Actually, if memory serves don't applications like Photoshop and Illustrator write prefs for their respective versions? So hopefully LW will follow suit.
