Installing Origin on C:\ and having games on both C:\ and D:\ ?

#1Auron_59261Posted 8/3/2013 4:00:20 PM
So can it be done? Obviously for storage restriction reasons I don't want all my Origin games on my SSD...really just want BF3 on it (since I have it currently on my standard HDD and noticed the load time difference from when it was on C:\ previously).

See if that works for you.

yes you can install games to different directories with origin. it was actually one of the good things origin had over steam until recently.

could you elaborate? all I see are work arounds, nothing "in-house" that allows for that.

you can use steam mover. Or you can install origin into c:/ and when you've installed the games you want on C:/ you change your directory to D:/

the games installed on c:/ arent moved but are still functional.
