    Hi everyone.

    Are there any commandline options for Scorched 3D?
    I am a developer from PortableApps.com and I am planning on creating a portable version of Scorched 3D. One of our principles is the strict separation of application files and user data so I wanted to ask if there are any command line arguments to tell Scorched 3D where to look for its settings.

    I couldnt find anything in the FAQ.

    Have a nice weekend!

    No I meant the wiki. I am not talking about commandline arguments inside the game but rather ones I can pass to the exe when I launch the game.

    All the settings (include automatically downloaded mods) are stored in the user home dir (in this example .scorched3d in linux).

    i also think it uses some env variables: e.g. export HOME=/home/scorched3d
