Changing injection folder


For compatibility reasons, I need to make a global install of SpecialK, but the space on my main SSD is limited and I need to inject some pretty heavy textures. The game that I want to mod, NierAutomata, is located on another SSD.

So I was wondering if it is possible to change the injection folder from the one located in MyDocuments to another one in my “gaming” SSD without having to perform a local install, and in case this is possible, I would like to know how to do it.

Thank you very much for the tool.

Textures are injected based on the path provided in the ResourceRoot parameter of the game config of SK, so all you need to do is install Special K, have it inject once into the game so SpecialK.ini gets created, and then open the SpecialK.ini and change the parameter to point to another location.


So e.g.


would use “Whatever” as a root for the injected textures etc.
