Description

Hello,
I'd like to be able to store my saves somewhere else.
For example, I would like to store saves in: E:\openmwsaves (usb)

That's pretty much it.

Thanks for reading this,
Bram

P.S. I love your work OpenMW team!

+1, I think it's likely the current save file format will be compatible with post-1.0 versions. Adding this feature may prematurely disappoint people if a new addition to the save file breaks older saves.

I do understand your last point but I disagree with it.
OpenMW could use the current beta stages to test the new features so that they are not broken in the 1.0 release.

Thanks for your support! :-)

Nope, right now I have OpenMW and Morrowind on an USB stick and plug it in the computer whenever I want to play.
But that's a interesting article, thanks for sharing it with me.
