Installing TS3 in a second hard drive

Post by kaw0930 on Thu 06 Sep 2018, 05:44

I apologize if this has been answered, I'm new to all of this and am having a tough time installing. I have a second hard drive on my computer called "J". TS3 will not fit on my C drive so I figured I'd try to install in the J drive. I was able to load the base, but when I got to the update, it kept automatically going into the C drive. Can someone help me step by step? I've already downloaded and unzipped the game and expansions. They are all in my J drive as shortcuts. Thank you!

Welcome to the Forum,

The problem with these "normal" TS3 installers is, if you want to install elsewhere than C:, you need to prepare the install folders for the base game plus DLC manually, and beforehand. See this commentary here for details:

In my opinion, your best bet would be to start over fresh with installing (the base game) on J: drive.

Good luck!
