      Put all custom files for a given game into ux0:/data/chocolate/pwads/<gamedir>, where <gamedir> is doom for all Doom games, heretic for Heretic and Shareware Heretic, hexen for Hexen and strife for Strife, then use the Custom tab in the launcher to select any custom content you want. Currently the launcher allows to select 1 DEH file and up to 4 PWADs/LMPs.

      Saves for a particular game/IWAD are stored in ux0:/data/chocolate/savegames/<iwad>.

      If the game closes without producing a crash dump, a file named ux0:/data/chocolate/i_error.log should be generated, which contains error messages.
