How can i access the user's files?


#1

hello , im trying to create a script to identify what client mods the user is using. would it be possible to do that via the “io” module?


#2

Nope. You cannot access user’s files. I don’t know why you would. The client scripts are sandboxed specifically to stop us doing stuff we shouldn’t be (including the IO module).

Allowing this access would just lead a bunch of malicious scripts being created and used so, I doubt the devs will allow it in the future (unless they can limit the folders you can access).

Ok then, if you’re so smart explain how?
