I'll take quake3 as an example.
Running quake3 for the first time create the ~/.q3a
mv ~/.q3a ~/quake3
Try joining a server with xqf, and you'll have this
"~/.q3a directory doesn't exist or doesn't contain baseq3"
Now in XQF--> Preferences --> games --> quake3, put
~/quake3 in the "Working
It doesn't work, same error message. The "Working
Directory doesn't exit or doesn't contain baseq3"
So settings the "Working Directory" is not working.
The patch corrects this wrong behaviour
