Limbus Company stores its additional download files in the AppData of your install drive (default LocalLow). Here’s a quick workaround to move your files to another disk.
Basically a workaround to the AppData storage that Limbus Company has opted to use, which does not allow us to change the directory worth ~4GB.
I have had this running just over a week, which includes the update that happened on the 16th – the game still runs fine, so I don’t think this should have too much of an issue.
HOWEVER! This workaround does require the use of Command Line, and I have only tested this on Windows 10 – you should check if the commands here can run on your version of Windows before attempting.
How to Move?
It should have a URL something like:
C:\Users\<your username here>\AppData\LocalLow\Unity
You can probably get here quicker using %appdata%, then navigating from there.
Personally, I placed mine in my Steam Directory in the D Drive.
In your original folder, the ProjectMoon_LimbusCompany folder should be deleted after this is done.
Jot down this URL, and wrap in quotes for any folder with spaces between.
So, for me, it would be:
DO NOT COPY THIS DIRECTLY! MAKE SURE THIS IS WHERE YOU WANT TO STORE YOUR DATA!
I did not need Administrative Rights to run it, but you might need it – try without Admin Rights first, and if it doesn’t work, retry with Admin Rights.
Note: This doesn’t seem to work with PowerShell, though I’m not sure about other alternatives.
You will need to run the following command:
mklink /J C:\Users\”<Your Username Here>”\AppData\LocalLow\Unity\ProjectMoon_LimbusCompany <TARGET LOCATION HERE>
The Target Location should be wherever you moved the folder to, including the ProjectMoon_LimbusCompany folder.
Any folder with spaces in between should be enclosed in quotations. So, if your folder path is:
E:\FolderWithNoSpace\Den som Griper\ProjectMoon_LimbusCompany
Then you need to put it in the URL as
E:\FolderWithNoSpace\”Den som Griper”\ProjectMoon_LimbusCompany
Once you are done, the ProjectMoon_LimbusCompany folder should reappear in the AppData folder with a little shortcut icon in the corner.
OK, but what does this command actually do?
