Question about downloading artwork externally

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.  I have my LaunchBox installed on my PC's internal hard drive.  I have my ROMs on an external hard drive.  I have it set up this way to save room on my internal hard drive.

My question is when I loaded my ROMs I received an option in the wizard to download box art, images, movies, etc.  I chose sure.  I do not believe i was ever given an option on where I would like that art, images, and videos to be downloaded to.  It downloaded it all to my LaunchBox directory on my internal hard drive (PC) at LaunchBox/Images/Nintendo Entertainment System/*.  This is adding 5GB to my internal hard drive (just for NES artwork).  Is there a way I can choose to store this same artwork on my external hard drive along with my ROMs?  Basically keeping the LaunchBox executables on my internal PC hard drive, and all other files (roms, art work, etc.) on my external hard drive?

By default media is always downloaded to the Launchbox folder. This can be changed though per platform and per media type under tools/manage platforms/name of platform/folders tab.
