Expected behavior

Visualboyadvance-M shall create a settings file within its install folder (for all settings).
No registry entries or roaming data folder shall be created. The only folder which shall be used is the install folder.

Actual behavior

Visualboyadvance-M stores the settings to a place which is "unknown" for the user.

Steps to reproduce the behavior

Start VBA-M configure something. Change the path from the vba-m.exe and verify if the settings remain.

Build details

Latest Beta 3 from the releases. Windows 10

It already has portable mode, just by default uses appdata folder, just move the config to exe level and it will be in portable mode.

I see. This is great. :-)
Thank you very much for the explanation.
It is just a proposal but to make it more user-friendly why not adding an option or a text file to indicate the portable mode (like dolphin)

Well in due time. Right now we are rather busy with some other work, but I'll add it as a 2.0 final target to do list.
