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

    Hi,

    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.

    Cheers
