  1. 1.0 1.1 File/folder structure within the installation folder reflects the path(s) listed for DOS and/or PC booter game data. For the release, file changes in DOSBox are redirected to <path-to-game>/cloud_saves/ even if GOG Galaxy is not used (this folder contains all redirected files, so some files in the cloud_saves folder might be temporary files or other files that do not contain saves or settings).
  2. 2.0 2.1 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>/263940/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (263940) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
