How do I put  the meshes in other folder than \CHARACTERS\ and make the game find them?

I am trying to take the strees off the game but I am not finding out how to do that.

 I am using EZ Hero. Is it possible to do that with this program??

Hello HS, as far as I know, you cannot really use other directories for custom characters, though I seem to remember CB had some kind of system to simulate this.  If you want meshes in other folders, I think you have to build characters in.  Then you can put their meshes pretty much wherever you want.

Hello, BentonGrey. Thank your for answering.

What do you mean about building characters in? How do I do that?

You *might* be able to make a custom hero in EZHero and point to a custom location and it *might* load in game just fine.

Try that out and see if that works.

spydermann93, what are the steps to make EZHero point to a diferent folder?
I am able to change the HERO folder, but somehow I can not change the mesh folder...

Could you teach me how to do that?

Actually, the tutorial video I made last week covers how to build characters in.  By that I mean making them part of the game as opposed to Herofiles.

I've got an alternate tutorial if the other one didn't work.
