Alternate Course folder

Postby Dawg Rivers on Wed Jun 12, 2019 3:42 pm

Is there a way to tell links 2k3 to look at another drive for courses? I would like to put some of my courses on another drive instead of using up lots of space on my C: drive.

Thanks

Sure, it's easy.
Move the courses to any where & then open Links, pick options, course manager, add & then you select the location
where you put the courses. Follow the instructions

You can move all of the courses to other folders/hard drives, but you need to keep DRIVING.RNG in the \Courses folder.

And when they ask you if you want to copy the course to Links/course folder, say NO -- if you say yes, your just putting the courses back in Links. And I think you will find your game loads faster too.

I keep all my courses in the links 2003 courses file folder. My game loads up just fine. Sure it might take 15 seconds but I don't care.

I keep them on thumb drive in case of crash. Don't have to find them all again.
Common sense and common courtesy two things this world needs more of.

I also have mine all back up on 1T USB box. I actually have a House Courses file and a Laptop Courses file. I timed my game firing up the other day and it was only 8 seconds.
