    Some games are not behaving as expected because the working directory is changed when launched by GameRoom. Example : CEMU loses its config that is saved in its app directory. I have another game that freezes at start for the same reason.

    Currently my workaround is to launch from GameRoom a specific bat file for each game like that.

    @echo off
    cd /D “J:\Game\MyGameDirectory\”
    start /WAIT “My Game or any random label for display purpose” “MyGameExe.exe”

    For CEMU I have also noticed this issue, it came with one of their last update. But even though it’s an interesting feature and rather quick to implement, so I’ll certainly add it in the next update.

    Thank you for your comprehension. One more thing, it is important to setup the working directory by default in GameRoom  because the games which are concerned by this working directory problem create their files in system directories (java cache folder? I don’t remember exactly). So it is not clean as is.

    This is the part where I have some debugging to do. Currently, GameRoom is supposed to start the game in the parent directory. Apparently something went wrong with the last update, I’ll have to fix this first (as it is the default and most wanted behavior) before introducing this feature.

    “GameRoom is supposed to start the game in the parent directory”. I didn”t know it was a regression : If you fix this it’ll be ok for me, I don’t need a custom working directory.

    Closing thread – implemented in 1.1.2.0 (application is now started in parent directory like before 1.1.0.0)
