Hi
Im just writing a quick editor and using RequestFile
The path that is returned from RequestFile is a full path ie c:\tmp\file.txt, but when I try to load the file, it can find it as its trying to look in internel/external/files etc
Am I doing something wrong? do I need preceed the filepath with cerberus://file/ or something so it can load from anywhere?

Yeah, I found that confusing too! I used:
Code:
Local fileIn:FileStream = FileStream.Open("cerberus://internal/world.dat", "r")
To load a file from the /internal folder in the build folder

ideally id like to load a file anywhere on my harddrive, not from the internals of the app.
(Ive found that the internal folders get wiped on compile)

Using
Cerberus X:
file:String = RequestFile("Load File", "Text Files:txt", False)
Local stream:FileStream = FileStream.Open(file, "r")
is working here...

I was using LoadString instead of Filestream.Open for reading.
Works now. thank you
