    Icon9 Regarding creating separate steam library for installation

    Hi, I have a question regarding creating separate steam library.

    It won't allow me to create a separate steam library in the same drive. So what are my options now? Do I have to partition my c drive?

    I also checked online and realize there might be a solution to move the files manually? But I found different versions of the method and don't know which one is right...

    And I have played 2.3 without moving directory and have only experienced rare crashes, usually only crashing in main menu. So how necessary is moving the files

    I regret not being able to help you sooner; I hope this is still relevant to you and that you have not partitioned your drive.

    The Steam client UI does not allow us to create parallel install folders for some reason, but you can create one manually and add it to the libraryfolders.vdf, which should be located in your "steamapps" folder. It should look something like this once you are done:

    "LibraryFolders"
    {
    "TimeNextStatsReport" "bunch of numbers here"
    "ContentStatsID" "another bunch of numbers"
    "1" "C:\\Program Files (x86)"
    "2" "C:\\SteamLibrary"
    }

    So the first two rows inside the curly brackets are specific to your installation, and you should not touch them. The number two is the new folder that you just created (here: C:\\SteamLibrary). If that does not work for you, we'll help you further.

    EDIT: You will most likely have to restart the Steam desktop client to make it recognize the folder.

    Thank you for the help, I guess one last question regarding system:

    In the Installation thread, under specific O/S Mandatory part, for Windows 10, second step I need to
    " Download DirectX End-User Runtimes (June 2010)."

    but I found it supports up to DirectX9 and mine is already DirectX12. Do I still have to grab that end user runtimes?

    I can't add any Rep to Septentrionalis, which is annoying, but thank you.

    We don't have any unnecessary steps in our installation instructions, everything is there because we've learned through bitter experience that it is necessary to ensure the smoothest possible game.

    Heirs to Lysimachos - a semi-historical Epeiros-as-Pergamon AAR

    Please someone correct me if needed, but having newer DirectX than needed should not be a problem. It has never caused me an issue with any game, and I am also running EB2 perfectly on Windows 10 with all the latest stuff. So follow the installation instructions and you should be fine.
