Description

I am running OpenMW .351 on Windows XP SP3.

As of now, OpenMW writes to files in my user directory. It would be handy if it could be configured to read and write files only in its own directory, ie portable. This would be very helpful so I can run multiple versions of OpenMW with different mods to do some testing and debugging.

FYI, on Linux you can control the user directory with the XDG_CONFIG_HOME environment variable. I don't think there are any equivalents on other OS though.
