[Closed] game and $HOME option files

Vavoom pareses the games.txt file in the basev directory It would be good to also parse - if they exist - a games.local.txt and a $HOME/.vavoom/basev/games.user.txt The games.txt file gets overwritten with an upgrade the suggested files would not. They would allow the user to add custom games - eg - // Braham Manor game basev/Braham iwad doom2.wad param -braham end It would also be an Idea for a $HOME/.vavoomrc and a /usr/games/Vavoom/vavoomrc file for global and user options. It would be filled with command line style options without the leading '-' These files would greatly simplify the vavoom startup.

If you have $HOME/.vavoom/basev/games.txt, it will be used. But generaly it's not meant to be modified and for custom games a '-game Braham' is preferred way to do this.

Except that if you install a custom game as root then the other users may not know all the correct options - so the easiest way to do so would be to use a - say games.local.txt - file to store the options in so that the users could simply say - -braham for example. it would greatly simplify the use of vavoom. so too would a global and user vavoomrc file. eg - $HOME/.vavoomrc - nomouse +SetResolution 800 600 16 window noendtxt +s_timidity 1

I better prefer putting them in autoexec.cfg. Only curently not all options that you want are available from console.

Yes that works for me. I just feel that there needs to be some mechanism to provide the above config/game options.
