Moving Games

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, im going to be wiping my computer and starting from scratch and ive ran into a couple issues for when i reinstall launch box i have a lot of games that i added manually (info,pictures,video,etc) when i reinstall launch-box am i going to have to manually add all those games again? or is there something else i can do? i tried the exporting games to zip file but when i try to import it back on a fresh install some of the games are missing. ive moved all of the games onto my external HD is there a way to auto change the games location or am i going to have to do that all manually ?

The best method to change path in LB is to edit your XML file using the Find and Replace method in NotePad++ Find.jpg FindPathCount.jpg ReplaceAll.jpg

Or if your folder's aren't changing, and it's not your C drive, you can change drive letters in Disk Management as well in Windows. Otherwise, LaunchBox is completely portable, so as long as the pathing of files outside of LaunchBox is the same, everything should be the way you left it before the re-install.
