#7375 closed feature request (duplicate)

Config file: look in current directory first

On any platform, if a config file is found in the current dir, it should be the default. Only if that one is not found, go look in the platform specific location ($HOME, %WINDIR% etc)

It seems to me as the logical approach. Possible use: When I wanted to convert my classic dott/sam cd to a modern scummvm one, I wanted to create a read-only config file that already has the targets configured. The only way to tell scummvm to use the config file on the cd was via a command line parameter.
