Directory structure

  • Data: Many custom data such as hats, themes, voicepacks, and the like are stored here in subdirectories. This is also the place in which HWP files (add-on files from Downloadable Content) are stored
  • Demos: Contains recorded demos
  • Logs: Contains log files which log Hedgewars' activities. Only useful for developing
  • Saves: Contains saved games
  • Screenshots: Contains the screenshots you took with the screenshot key
  • Teams: Contains all the files which describe the teams
