Anyway, before ScummVM looks at the savegames directory, it has to know where that directory is . To do that, it needs to be able to find the config file. So it is simply impossible to store the config file in the savegames directory, unless we disallow changing the location of the savegames direct...

Yeah that one was answered. However, Im uncertain how games actually handle it ;) I told you, most recent games put the data in either of the locations we're talking about :) (And/or the registry). That's not right, Vinterstum. :) Absolutely NO game ever stores ANYTHING in APPDATA. Not ever. :) Edi...

If the default location of configuration file is changed, it will be the way already described by Vinterstum. The application folder can't be used, since it could be write protected on multi-user systems. The 'My Documents' folder will not be used, since it only meant for user created files. And we...

Older OS's are extremely handy if you want to run old games. while i already use win98se for this purpose, i wouldnt mind having a win95 or even Win3.1 comp around to run the ones that win98 has trouble with (space quest 5 comes to mind) I agree with Joachim about useing %homepath%\ScummVM. This wo...

Also, Program files, the defualt install location for ScummVM, is ALSO protected by sysrecovery AND user protection.

Not to speak of issues when starting it from CD.

IMHO, this topic isn't discussed often enough by far. Personally, I consider this circumstance neither to be a feature request nor a bug, but simply as a horrid violation of a principle Operating System design guide. scummvm.ini AND the savegames *have* (I say have here to stress it) to be stored in...

i encourage anyone else who has this game to give it a shot as i have never been very good at the fighting in Indy4 Last time I played that path, I think I used the zero key ("sucker punch") rather extensively. :) Losers. :P No wonder no-one can provide me with an IQPOINTS file with 1000 points.
