#4853 closed defect (fixed)

Incomprehensible message for missing scummvm.ini

Reported by: SF/l-w-c Owned by: fingolfin

Description

Instead of simply writing "re-creating missing %appdata%\ScummVM\scummvm.ini", the launcher writes this message: "WARNING: FSNode::createReadStream: FSNode does not exist!"

It's not only incomprehensible, but hides the fact that it creates a file in the user's folder behind the user's back.

This concerns the new v1.1.0.

I have submitted a patch for this: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=2985205&group_id=37116&atid=418822

I committed vgvgf's patch, which improves that message; and I also added a message which clarifies that a new config file is created. So if no config file is present, ScummVM no prints this for me (on Mac OS X):

WARNING: FSNode::createReadStream: 'ScummVM Preferences' does not exist!
Default configuration file missing, creating a new one

That should address this bug.
