Move folder "FS-UAE"

By default, the folder "FS-UAE" is located in the "Documents" folder. Is it possible to move this folder to another place? All my attemps to move it failed so far...


Many thanks for your help!

Have a look under "Base Directory" here: https://fs-uae.net/paths

Just put the path you want in the base-dir file.

Many thanks!! I'm confused, I read I have to put the path to the desired base directory in a special config file. How can I create such a config file?

Or is there a base-dir file somewhere in which I can put the path into?

Again: Many thanks!!

Open Explorer and go to %LOCALAPPDATA%. If the fs-uae directory doesn't exist then create it.

Inside the fs-uae folder, right click and make a new file called "base-dir". Open it with Notepad and write the path to the FS-UAE folder you want inside. Save and restart FS-UAE, then it should use the new directory.

Explorer sounds like Windows, I run FS-UAE on Mac... where can I find LOCALAPPDATA here? Again: Many thanks!!

From the FS-UAE site mentioned above (paths):

Base Directory
By default, FS-UAE creates its directories under Documents/FS-UAE. For
Linux users: If your Documents directory is not configured according to the
XDG user dir spec, ~/FS-UAE will be used as a fallback.

You can override this by putting the path to the desired base directory in a
special config file. The config file will be read by both FS-UAE and FS-UAE
Launcher if it exists:
  • Windows: <LOCALAPPDATA>/fs-uae/base-dir
  • OS X: ~/Library/Preferences/fs-uae/base-dir
  • Linux/other: ~/.config/fs-uae/base-dir
Alternatively, you can starting FS-UAE and/or FS-UAE Launcher with --base-dir=/path/to/desired/dir
