So I read a question posted earlier about installing Unreal Engine on boot drive of your Mac and then moving it to an external hard drive for use there, but I was having difficulties getting symbolic link to work.
I followed instructions outlined here: #Tips_and_Tricks
but I was a little confused by response posted on other question (Can't Install Engine to External Hard Drive? (Mac) - Platform & Builds - Epic Developer Community Forums), as Unreal support said there shouldn’t be spaces between /Destination/Location/Shared and /Users/Shared/UnrealEngine? Usually when you create a symbolic link there would be a space. I typed:
Sudo mv /Users/Shared/UnrealEngine /Volumes/My\ Passport\ for\ Mac
ln -s /My\ Passport\ for\ Mac/Shared /Users/Shared/UnrealEngine
(this is correct, yes?)
So, I followed these instructions, but then when I try to boot up Unreal from my external hard drive, when I open Epic Games, button for “Launch” is replaced with “Repair”. When I click on it, it attempts to reinstall Unreal on boot drive of my Mac, which is not what I want. Any idea of how to fix this?
Thanks so much.
