To my understanding, it's a requirement in accordance with Apple's sandboxing policies, if you want an executable to be able to make changes to files inside the executable bundle. The way it's supposed to work, no application is allowed to write or modify anything in the old location where the

I think that's right, Apple enforces this rule. The standalone builder will move files to a Resources folder when it builds the app. For backward compatibility, scripts that reference the engine folder are redirected to the Resources folder automatically. On 3/27/17 1:22 PM, Bob Sneidar via
