Can you explain why? What are the use cases you have in mind here?

comment:2 by SF/mac_es, 13 years ago


I use ScummVM as a portable app. I use the -c switch in command line to specify the scummvm.ini. Also, in this .ini file I use relative paths for everything so I can copy/move along directories... For savegames I have changed the path also...

So I have an option to specify every single directory: scummvm.ini, theme, extra path, savegames... So I would like to specify the log location. The idea is If I backup the ScummVM tree I get everything and I don't have leftover files in the computer.

It is now possible, specify 'logfile=/full/file/name' in scummvm.ini, or via '--logfile' command line parameter.
