#655 closed defect (wontfix)

Save game files

Reported by: SF/plasmoid Owned by: fingolfin
Priority: normal Component: Port: Linux

Description

Save game files seem to be written in the directory from which scummvm is run.

Ex, If I'm in public_html/ and run scummvm, then all my save games will be in public_html/.

Also, scummvm can only see save game file in the current directory. This is rather... bad.

It would be more appropriate if the save games were placed in .scummvm/ and scummvm configured to search there for save games.

This is the correct Unix approach for this sort of thing. Do write back if you'd like some help implementing this.

Have you tried specifying the savepath in your ~/.scummvmrc?

You can specify a custom path for your save games in the config file.

If you want anything else, file a feature request, not a bug report.
