How can I make GZDoom share user configs?

Post by yum13241 »

So let's say I have a user named Jack and another named John. How can I make GZDoom make these users use the same config?

Assuming you have Windows and the user named Jack is the configuration you want to use - first, delete John's config, then open a command prompt (you can just type "cmd.exe" in the address bar with the GZDoom folder open), and type the following:

Code: Select all

mklink /h gzdoom-John.ini gzdoom-Jack.ini
Making hard links does not require administrator privileges.

Also, if you want all users to share the same config file, then instead of using the method described above, you can simply rename the config file to gzdoom_portable.ini (note the _ in portable, which is not used for the user-named configs).
