Separate settings?

Postby ms850 » Sat Nov 08, 2014 7:46 pm

Is there a way to save 2 sets of settings for EVE? I read a way using the 2x install method, but I can't seem to do that since I'm using the steam linked version. I did make a separate install, but I could not login to the client with steam credentials. My goal is to be able to login with settings required for tiny miner, then have another setup for regular gaming. I have dual 24" monitors and it's tedious having to switch the settings every time I want to do something besides mining.

There's already a thread explaining how to make a hard link (junction) to your existing Eve Online folder so that you don't need to install it all over again. Here it is:

EVE updates and multiple installation folders

Just locate your Eve folder inside the "Steam\SteamApps\common\" folder and then follow the instructions from the above thread to create a junction to it so that you can use TinyMiner without having to change your gaming settings all the time.
