#7426 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Global and local configuration files

Description

Maybe it is possible to have more configuration files,
which are processed successively, e.g. first
/etc/scummvm, then ~/.scummvm. So one can write all
"installed" games in one global file and any user can
do his own preferences. Perhaps it is even possible to
scan a whole directory, so one can put, for instance in
/etc/scummvm/, a config file for any "installed" game,
while any user can put his own changes in his ~/.scummvm.

It is "possible" in the sense that everything is possible, technically, but at
this point, we have no intentions to allow that, to the contrary.

It's also unclear, from a legal point of view, whether we should ever support
such a multi user setup.

Anyway, this has all already been discussed here:
