Cardpics on Android

Postby Gat10279 » 23 Apr 2018, 01:54

Hello, I was wondering if it's possible with the Android version of Forge to change the storage location of the card pictures from the internal storage to an SD card. Obviously 1.5+ GB of pictures is a lot for internal memory, but I have a 64 gig external microSD card. I try to search for the SD card in Forge, but it gives me an error message. I'll try and provide that error message tomorrow if necessary. Thanks in advance for the help.

Yes - and no.
It depends on the phone model, in my experience.

For example, the lowly Huawei Y6 will use the pic files from an SD card, no problem at all.

The more top-of-the-line Huawei Mate 9 will simply refuse to work when you change the directories to your SD card - you either get a black screen or a crash.

(That's not to say a Y6 would be preferable for playing Forge. The Mate 9 will run Forge much faster and much more smoothly, and the considerably bigger and better-looking screen is obviously an improvement. And the 64GB internal RAM ought to be plenty for Forge, anyway...)

This is the error I get when going to my SD card. Sorry I didn't post it earlier.


*Edit*: it seems to miraculously started working. Very odd.
