Extrapath doesn't work

To begin with, thanks for this most wanted feature :)

There are two problems with the Extrapath option in the latest Win32 CVS build (1473K exe file, last update: June 30, 2004, 12:24 am).

First of all, it simply doesn't work (or I didn't understand how it's supposed to work). For example, let's say I want to run BS1 from the original CDs: the game target is the root of my CD drive, and I point the Extrapath at the MP2/OGG video folder on my HD. The game works no problem (except for the usual scripts.clu issue), but the videos are not played at all like if the folder was not recognized. Tried and got the same non-working results with BS2 and Indy 4 FM-Towns (in the latter, I point the Extrapath at the root of the CD in order for the global speech .sou file to work with the English and Japanese versions).

Second problem: when I select a path for the Extrapath option in the GUI, I quit ScummVM and then I look at the resulting modification in my ScummVM.ini file, I can see that the Savepath option has been automatically modified as well -- it's the same as the path specified in Extrapath, instead of my global savepath setting.

The actual per-game support for extrapath hasn't been commited yet, as I'm still updating some documentation and replacing some error messages with more useful text.

At the moment it's only intended use is in BS1/BS2 and FOTAQ. The FM-Towns thing is another issue that I'm not familiar with myself.

As for the second problem, thanks. It was a copy/paste bug I fixed a while ago, but I must have submitted the wrong version to CVS :)
