shortcut for winex quake3


lo

for the past days ive been playing quake3 by typing *winex3 /mnt/fat-C/misc/games/quake3.exe, but like humannature goes i really dont wanna type that whole sentence every time... so i made a short cut... but the shortcut seems asthough it doesnt see the rest of the folder because the q3 console that loads it up says it cant see default.cfg...i cant seem to do the same for half-life.. so what im asking is how exactly can i create a shortcut to see the directory. perhaps a shortcut to a shelll that "cds" into the directory and then says *winex3 quake3.exe*

any advice would be appricated
ta inadvance

you could create a shell script that does it or create the shortcut to say:

cd /mnt/fat-C/misc/games/ && winex quake3.exe

Quake 3 has a linux version. Just get the special Binary, and install Quake 3 using your windows disc.

No need to run it in emulation.
