Screenshot directory

Why on the config the path for the screenshot is not user configurable?
The actual is the C:\Users\User*Account\Pictures\ScummVM Screenshots.
I thing when you take a lot of screenshot it is for future use and you
don't want to loose them is Windows image need to be restored.
I have change all path and use link for user profile path
"U:\GAMES\Scummvm\scummvm.exe" --config="U:\GAMES Config\Scummvm\scummvm.ini"
But the screenshots don't seem to use the config in the .ini.

It is not clear what you tried. In the Options dialog in ScummVM there is indeed no way to set the screenshot path, but if you edit the .ini file manually to set the screenshotpath it should work.

With recent daily builds (and in the 2.6.0 version when it is released) you also have the ability to specify the screenshotpath on the command line with --screenshotpath=.

Which version of ScummVM are you using, and what did you put in your .ini file to set the screenshotpath?

Waiting a bit more to see if the user gives more info regarding the the screenshots don't seem to use the config in the .ini issue.

Otherwise it can be closed. There is already a separate bug (#13355) regarding adding the options to the Paths tab in the GUI.

Everything works as criezy explained (tested right now in Windowns, adding the option to the .ini or using the commandline option)

Can be safely closed, I think
