Hi
Im trying to write to a file in the projects media directory on Mac with this code:



Nothing happens. The file is not created or if I make a text file, nothing is changed in the file. Is this a permission thing on Mac?

I don't know where AppGameKit stores user files on Mac. But on Windows the storage folder is not the same as the project folder.

Actually if you're creating files it stores them in C:\Users\your_id\AppData\Local\AGKApps\your_app\media
There is probably a similar folder on the mac.
You can prove this by opening the file you just created using OpenToRead()


EDIT: You can get the folder that is written to using GetWritePath()
