[Fixed] problem with @response files and quotes in paths

Problem: if I try to load a responsefile like this: D:\Doom\vavoom\v117_win\Vavoom95.exe "@D:\Doom\\response.txt" where response.txt has these lines: -iwad "D:\Doom\DOOM2.WAD" -file "C:\temp\space city\ERMUA3.WAD" then vavoom gives me the error: "Required file "D:\Doom\DOOM2.WAD" doesn't exist" Stack trace: Host_Init When in fact it does actually exist. It seems it's not parsing the "" properly on the lines inside response.txt. I have tried the same tests on Legacy, EDGE, ZDoom, PRBoom (and GLBoom), Eternity, Doomsday/Jdoom, and Vavoom. Only the last two fail to parse quotation marks properly.

Yes, Vavoom is also case sensitive, meaning that it looks directories all in lower case and if you up case one letter of it, it won't work anymore, but I don't know if it could be considered a bug or not.

Are you serious? Wow! That is asking for trouble on a Windows Box: I would definitely consider that a bug

Fixed that.
Vavoom is also case sensitive

Good man Janis! Just another little question: all these will be fixed in the next version of Vavoom, right? When can we expect it? <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D -->

I do remember I had some problems if I rename the folder names to start upper cased, Vavoom won't find them (or maybe that was a long time ago), but I do remember that.
