# How do I manually define save paths in GMS?

I want to know if it is possible to set the path for my game's save data in GameMaker: Studio outside of the two default options I am given in the program. The options I get are:

%LocalAppData%\<game_name>


and

%AppData%\<game_name>


I can't seem to find a text box or text feild that let's me set something different. I feel like there should be one for advanced users so that path variables and wildcards can be used in the save data path.

I also tried opening the game's config .gmx and setting the path there. Unfortunately it did not work as the only values that do work are 0 & 1 which represent the default path options respectively. Is this possible? Am I missing something?

• Try saving it using the file system. – clabe45 Aug 1 '17 at 18:46
