Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 File/folder structure within the installation folder reflects the path(s) listed for DOS and/or PC booter game data.
  2. File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/814650/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (814650) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
