How to use the same tiles for 2 tours?

Hello, I need advice on how to use the same tiles for 2 tours. I have tour #1 in Italian, and tour #2, which is a copy of #1, in English; of course the tiles are the same, so I'd like to set the xml file of tour #2 to use the tiles contained in tour #1 indexdata folder. Any idea on how I can get this? I tried to do as stated in this guide:
but there's something wrong as I always get an error message and nothing is displayed on screen. Thanks a lot.

basically all you need todo is the set the correct urls (relative or absolute) to the tiles in the xml files.

And if doing access across domains then also CORS on the server need to setup correctly - more information about that here:

Thanks for your reply, that's what I thought, but the problem is I can't do that.

I tried to modify the xml file of Tour #2, which is contained in the main folder of Tour #1 (next to its indexdata):
1) in the krpano tag, I added a line: basedir="./../indexdata/"
2) in each <scene> tag I replaced thumburl="%FIRSTXML%/..." with thumburl="%BASEDIR%/..."
3) in each <preview> tag I replaced url="%FIRSTXML%/..." with url="%BASEDIR%/..."
4) in each <imagee> tag I replaced url="%FIRSTXML%/..." with url="%BASEDIR%/..."

But all I get is the attached error message. Can you please help me?
Thnaks again,

the error message just indicates that the paths might be still wrong.

Maybe try also using the browser developer tools to find out more which paths are finally tried to get loaded.

Best regards,

Update. Maybe this can be useful to other beginners like me who need any kind of possible help.
It works. The error message I got was probably due to krpano Testing Server, that I was using to view the tour offline. It seems that KTS can't open properly a tour with tiles located in a different folder than the one where the xml file is.
But when the tours are uploaded online, everything works correctly, thanks to the changes to the xml file I listed in post #3.
