Emulator Issues #12169
Allow changing location of GCI and Save State directories
This is probably more useful for the macOS version of Dolphin than the Windows version since it is easier there to move the user directory around, but I would like to make 2 requests.
1) Add the ability to choose the location of the GCI folder
2) Add the ability to choose the location of the save states
I am probably in the minority, but I prefer to keep both of these items on an external drive to prevent data loss in the event of a internal drive failure (especially on these wonderful non-upgradeable MBAs/MBPs). Being able to select the location would be easier and more convienent than having to remember to manually back them up from Application Support or outright change the location of the Global User Directory.
(I debated making 2 separate feature requests for simplicity, but did not want to clutter up the tracker with minor ideas.)

Overriding the GCI folder is technically already possible, it's just not documented as it was only added for internal use. The keys are GCIFolderAPathOverride and GCIFolderBPathOverride.
Could you please provide some instructions on how to use these? So I can change the paths this way until it's implemented in the GUI.
