    Its a pain though. If I specified a different drive, wtf is C&C saving the games in MY DOCUMENTS instead of it's own directory, same with Max Payne?

    Are you talking about the game save files and map files? If you move (or copy & pase for that matter) the root directory has been programmed to make a file in "mydocuments" if one doesn't exist.

    I'm not really sure how to change it and don't feel like installing the game to find out how. Try shooting EA Lames an email or find a C&C board.
