    FGU - failure accessing campaign data on network drive

    I have my gamedata files on a network share, but when I try to start up my campaign it fails to access the files, it appears that it's stripping the leading '\' from the path. If I create a new campaign it works fine, but once I exit I can't get back in.

    It's correct in the registry.

    Are you running on Mac OSX or Windwows?

    It looks like it's failing on a backup/copy routine for backing up the campaign on load. I can't see anything obvious for why it would strip a slash. Might need to try and set up here.

    I will mention that loading and sharing with players will be "much" slower on a network drive than a local drive.

    This is on Windows 10. I've been using the same network location on FGC, it's slower, but acceptable.

    Just a heads up that you shouldn't use the same data folder for both FGC and FGU. They are not data-compatible with each other. FGU can read FGC campaigns; but not vice-versa.

    is your network path UNC or mapped?

    One way to get around this is to make a mount point on your Windows 10 PC linking to the network share. This is done using the MKLINK command, and creates a symbolic link to another resource. So as an example would be you have a directory on C:\FGDATA and want to have a link to \\server\FGU:

    mklink /D C:\FGDATA\FGU \\server\FGU

    Now you can find the FGU structure a C:\FGDATA\FGU, this will allow you to save the files "locally" and on the network share at the same time.

    Feel foolish not thinking of that myself..
