Getting TERA PC to work with GeForce Experience
Not sure if this has already been addressed on these forums or not, but, if you want to get TERA working with GeForce Experience, you have to install TERA under
This means with the new launcher and installer experience you can't use the default location under C:\users\Public.
The process I followed to get it working:
1. During the installation of the launcher I specified
C:\Program Files\Tera as the location for the launcher to install.
2. During the installation of the game itself, I specified
C:\Program Files as the location for the game to install - it will use the Tera folder above created to install the game files (the game always expects a folder named Tera, so if you just specify
C:\Program Files it will pick up the folder you created with the launcher installation step above).
I really don't think this is a TERA issue - seems like its more of an NVidia issue - basically GeForce experience expects the game binaries to be in very specific hard-coded folders, so when a publisher decides to change where that gets installed, NVidia doesn't always do a great job of updating GeForce experience to reflect that change.
And no- its not as simple as adding the new folders to the directories that GeForce experience scans looking for new games. I tried that and it didn't work. GeForce Experience absolutely expects the game binaries to be installed in
C:\Program Files\Tera for some stupid bizzare reason.
Anyway hope this helps people struggling with this. GeForce Experience is great because it reduces the overhead of tweaking graphics settings in games according to what NVidia hardware you have in your system. Its especially nice for those who use gaming laptops because it has "whisper mode" settings that help tweak settings so you get maximum performance and quality balance without overheating your laptop or running the battery down.
