Pathnames for default settings

Post by XnTriq » Fri Sep 09, 2011 3:00 pm

MP beta 0.39.0 Windows:

There's an extra slash in the pathnames for default.bar and default.keys.

I noticed this too...

I also noticed that in the .ini, it seems to be using forward slash ("/") in text path-directory places instead of using the correct backwards slash ("\")... This needs addressing too since...

..I like to open the .ini in a text editor and input my own full filename path's as a manual non-standard method for 'Recent Files'

Is forward slash used for support of Linux builds? Or is forward slash just another error

:) Hello !

• Confirmed ! Same mess here in my INI for all paths… the most surprising being that they work even so,
I tested with the “Recent files”. :P
- In some cases the “/” works in Windows instead of the “\”. However, I would prefer the correct character, and I'm curious to hear the Pierre's explanation (?) about this oddity…
