Some credit goes to panraven here for figuring out how to write a shellexecute to create a directory quietly.
All I did was write a simple usage script that is exposed in Cheat Engine as....


createDir(folderpath,newfoldername,openfolder,wait)

Usage is pretty straight forward.

folderpath: the folder you wish to make a directory in
newfoldername: new folder(s) name(s)
openfolder: a true or false statement to open folder after creation
wait: true will delay CE thread so folder can be written to immediatley with next line
return: provides full path


Code:

--example:
create Multiple folders by seperating new folder with "\\"
local FP = [[C:\]]
createDir(FP,'Frodo\\Baggings')


Code:

D = createDir("C:\\Frodo\\Baggins",'Bilbo')
print(D) ---> will return full path(new folder included) --C:\Frodo\Baggins\Bilbo


wait example:
Code:

local FP = [[C:\]]
A = createDir(FP,'Bilbo\\Baggings',true,*false*)  ------ Remove (*)'s to run


local f = io.open(A.."\\Hobbit.txt",'w')
f:write("Its a Book   "..A.."\n")
f:close()

file write will FAIL but will not give pause to main CE thread.






Maybe thr is a betterway to write this thts faster and doesnt require a faux(wait). I am open to suggestion but this works rather well.

Code:
local path = "D:\\zanzer"
os.execute("mkdir "..path)
shellExecute(path)
local f = io.open(path.."\\zanzer.txt", "w+")
f:write("zanzer!")
f:close()
