HiresTextures: Read textfile to refer to texture pack folder. #7556
A while ago I mentioned this feature request: https://forums.dolphin-emu.org/Thread-feature-request-custom-textures-folder-for-multiple-games.
I am kinda new with writing C++. As proof of concept, I managed to draft up the following code. It is probably horrible. But I wanted to give it a try anyway.
The idea is that you can place a .txt file naming it with a Game ID of the game you want to load. The text file should contain a single line of text containing the Game ID the loaded game should refer to for loading the texture pack. That's basically it. The goal is to hopefully get rid of symbolic links.
The textfile can be either named with the first three characters or the complete Game ID. Shouldn't really matter. The textfile should be placed into Load/Textures.
