So, I’m not crazy about files being randomly moved/copied to new directories, especially when I can just link the necessary files myself. This is a problem for some runners like ZDoom, where there are not a few install scripts which copy a directory from Steam or GOG or wherever, and place them in a new directory. Now, yes, in the case of ZDoom, the file sizes are basically nothing, but file size has a nasty habit of sneaking up on you when you least expect it, especially if you download/play a lot of modded content, or you have things placed in specific drives for specific reasons. It’s possible to delete the copy and route the Lutris config to use the original file instead, but then Lutris no longer recognizes that game as being installed under that runner. This makes it all the more aggravating when you try to install something with a dependency that you know is installed but Lutris no longer recognizes that it is.
So, for the sake of convenience, please allow us to make/fork install scripts that reference the needed files with system links instead of just copying identical files to multiple new directories. Thank you.
