Turns out i haven't fixed it.

What I ment was I am compling an install for a mod and I wanted to know how you get it to install to the correct Steam directory as they will all be different depending on your steam username.

Anybody know?

Nope just make it go. C:>program files>Valve>Steam>Steam apps>(make them type in their name. Make it say your name here or something>Half life>(name of the mod) I dont know if that will work but it should. Either that or have them browse for it or make htem rename their foler that has their name on to say cookie or something then have it install there and itll all still work if u just backup the folder with your name on it. It sounds like it would work to me but I'm not a coder so... I wouldnt really know. Look at one of the coding stickies.

basicly if you have more accounts the easiest way is to just install it to boath accounts ^^

But if you want it in 1 account than just install it to the username you want it in.


so if you have 2 accounts:
acc1 and acc2

you have HL1 in acc1 and CS in acc2
and you want to install a mod to acc1 the directory would be
C:>program files>Valve>Steam>Steamapps>acc1>Half life>modname>

or if you want it in acc2
C:>program files>Valve>Steam>Steamapps>acc2>Half life>modname>

its that simple

That was my point, this would install on other peoples systems.

I am right in remembering ESF installs to your dircectory automatically right?
I don't remember any dragging or renaming
