this is a missing feature: .fx can only be boygrouped if they are present on all the clients. don’t forget to distribute them again when you edited the .fx file on the server. (may use a simple batch file for that!)
effects can be in two places:
in the /effects folder which exists parallel to the /modules folder. on hovereing an effect with the mouse (on the server patch) you should see :EFFECT:…fx which means the .fx will be searched for relative to the \effect file
anywhere else. in that case they will be referenced with a relative (if possible) of absolute path. hovering the effect on the server patch should reveal its position. an absolute path simply has to match. a relative path…well
when starting a boygroup client with:
you can specify an additional rootpath for all relative paths by writing something like:
/client serverip C:\myproject\patches\
now i only hope that this also works for effects. i only tested that for patches and mediafiles! so please let us know.
