Steem beta (2017-10-08): Portable relative dir mode "CurrentFolder=." makes permanent crash

Postby Corak » Mon Oct 09, 2017 3:20 pm

Hi, i want to make Steem portable again so i can easly run it from any folder with preset game pack, it was working in v3.5.2 (2013-08-04), but i just tested latest build version - and it's absolutely broken there.
setting all absolute pathes to relative, especially
CurrentFolder=.
makes Steem crash every time it tries to find a file or open a drive manager.
Could you restore relative old portable mode?

Will look at it, but do you know at which version it was broken?

Looking at the code, it seems Steem expects / and not .
That way it works for CurrentFolder at least.
I'll make the directory where Steem runs the default directory (already the case for the Debug build).
