Documentation for the above template (sometimes hidden from view).

Specify each row with {{Game data/config| (for configuration files) or {{Game data/saves| (for save game data). The first parameter is for the data type, the second parameter is the path.

Where possible use environmental variables instead of manual paths (e.g. %USERPROFILE%\Saved Games\, not C:\Users\your user name\Saved Games\) since these will automatically expand when used to match the path on the user's end.

Using notes

Add a note if the folder path needs further explanation, e.g. Ultima Underworld: The Stygian Abyss has a SAVE0 folder that isn't actually one of the user's save files.
If the game has a Linux version, specify whether it supports the XDG specification using the Template:XDG.

Example usage

{{Game data|
{{Game data/saves|DOS|{{p|game}}\DATA\SAVEGAME}}
}}

This produces:

System Location
DOS <path-to-game>\DATA\SAVEGAME
