I tried to export my friends list on the Mac, but can't find the file. Can someone tell me where it is?

Related question: if I "import" a friends list onto a character that already has friends, do the entries add or do the entries in the file overwrite the existing entries?

Thanks

If it follows the same as the PC then the "FriendsList.ini" file should be in found in the same place as all the DDO executables/files.

On a quick and dirty test it does add rather than just overwrite.

Hmm. Doesn't seem to work at all on my Mac.

When I click 'export', nothing happens, and manual inspection or Spotlight don't find a FriendsList.ini

When I change character and click 'import', nothing happens.

That's unfortunate.

Only other info I can offer is the basic format of the friendslist.ini:




[Friend0]
Name=
Note=
[Friend1]
Name=
Note=
[Friend2]
Name=
Note=
[Friend3]
Name=
Note=
etc etc.
May be able to create something at least...


It's also possible that the function isn't supported on Macs. You may have to stick in a support request (https://help.standingstonegames.com/hc/en-us/requests/new)
