Moving Vassal Folder to Dropbox

Postby GamesOnTheBrain » March 8th, 2011, 3:32 pm

By default in OS X, Vassal creates a directory called VASSAL, for storing preferences and such, in my main user directory:

Macintosh HD:Users:Tim:VASSAL

Is there a way to change this location? I'd like to put it on Dropbox to share it across several machines.

Not presently, no.

It's also likely to become infeasible to have that directory be located
in something like Dropbox in 3.2, as we'll be storing the on-disk tile
cache there, which will potentially be quite large.

You can change the path to another location (using /Volumes another disk/mount) using a symlink.
