I don't have my Stream games installed on the C drive. The path does not auto populate during the install process. Where do all the files need to be installed to? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Are you talking about the XWAU Craft Pack itself or individual installers?

Now that you ask. It will be both. I am starting at the top of the suggested install order.

Point the installer to your XWA game folder. The main directory.

So for example:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Star Wars X-Wing Alliance

Hi I've just located my Steam version of XWA to my D Drive and tested and tested one of the individual craft installers, the correct path appeared the the install path field

D:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Star Wars X-Wing Alliance\

I suggest you uninstall your Steam XWA and reinstall, selecting the same location as you did before, but allow the steam installer to finish installing, it takes ages, in the steam window, press PLAY to bring up the Launcher, when it appears select Pilot Option to select a pilot, click Load Pilot and Done, then press Exit to Windows.

Next test any individual XWAUP craft installer, the install path should auto populate with the correct Path

If it doesn't then I suspect there is something wrong with your Registry entry for the game

If you know how to enter the registry (google it) go to:-

WARNING: DO NOT edit or change anything!

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC\X-Wing Alliance\v1.0

The Registry should look something like this

DO NOT EDIT OR CHANGE ANYTHING, UNLESS YOUR FAMILIAR WITH THE REGISTRY YOU COULD SCREW UP YOUR COMPUTER
