PCSX2: Add configurable Cheats folder to Components Selectors #2272
Add GUI option in the Plugins Component Selector to change the default "Cheats" folder location.
This has been bugging me. I have no idea how many times I deleted my cheats folder by mistake when updating to newer dev builds. This should solve all those issues for many people.
Well since I have per game configs all of the files (bios, memory cards, .. etc) are located in documents, so when I purge the old version I delete everything and keep forgetting about the Cheats.
As for changing the translatable strings again well they need to be changed anyway when FlatOut's PR gets merged
Edit: Plus this way it's easier to maintain, sometimes people get confused where to put the cheats either in documents or pcsx2 directory. This will make it easier for them.
That would not be a good idea. Someone could have, say, a global cheats folder somewhere outside of the PCSX2 folder, while using the default paths for all other folders. Although adding a global option that affects all folders instead of having to modify all of 'em separately(folder options for bios/mc/plugins are all located elsewhere in the UI) when you do have all folders in the same location could be helpful.
