Hi, I have Twinmotion installed on a different folder than the default (on an external drive because of storage reasons) because of this Archicad doesn't see Twinmotion as installed on my Mac.
How do I change the folder that Archicad looks for Twinmotion?
Just did a quick test, and there is an easy workaround ... but, you are right, the Epic Games people hard-coded the path into their add-on, rather than looking for the TwinMotion app in alternate locations.
If you move TwinMotion to a location other than Users>Shared>Epic Games>Twinmotion2020.1>Twinmotion
then you must put a shortcut to the new Twinmotion app at that location. In Finder, option-Command-drag the Twinmotion app to the Twinmotion2020.1 folder to create the shortcut.
There is a sibling Twinmotion_2020.1-CL13672003_exe_files.txt file at that location that you might as well leave there since its tiny.
The only issue I see with this method is that the Epic Games Launcher may not be able to apply updates to Twinmotion as it will be looking at a shortcut vs the app... guess you'd find out the next time an update is available..
