  1. Map ODB to existing user folders


    ODB sets up its own folder under User. In my ODB I have set up the folder names for the usual folders that are under the User - Documents, Download, Pictures, etc. That's where I keep my data, mirrored in the cloud. It means the usual folders under User are empty.


    It looks redundant in File Explorer. Is there a way for ODB Documents to equal User Documents, etc?


    Thanks

    :)

    Vista Ultimate - 'User' Folder Location

    No tried that.

    Can copy the entire folder to D; but Windows still points to C as the location. Can change personal folders location to a folder on D;, but this still leaves hidden files etc on C;. Thus meaning there are 2 Users folders. Have managed to change the Public folder location to D;, with some registry tweaks, but this doesnt seem to work for the entire folder.

    any more suggestions

    Current active users that are friends

    The other reason I suggested this is that users can add characters to their username that are not alphanumeric (e.g. user*). This confuses things somewhat when looking at the list.

  4. Map ODB to existing user folders

    new user created portal 2 maps for download.

    http://www.portal2maps.net/browse-maps.html


    list of free user created maps in either Test, ALPHA, BETA or finished product. afaik these were not created using the new portal 2 map creator software.

    some of the maps are quite hard compared to the originals are are very fun.
