[2.1.18] Addfile has trouble loading a file
I wasn't sure what to write on the title.
I have SRB2 set to use a different folder as the home (-home files), so every WAD I have is located in "[SRB2 folder]/files/srb2".

The problem resides in that addfile works in a weird way when this command line argument is used.
When addfile is being used at the titlescreen, the files load correctly as expected.
But when addfile is being used in-game, it doesn't load the WAD unless it is located in the home folder.
Also, when addfile is used for a file that actually doesn't exist, the error message is different. This error is the same in-game and in the title screen.

I vaguely remember encountering something similar with files in the DOWNLOAD subfolder recently-ish, even without changing the home directory. IIRC sometimes I had to explicitly use "DOWNLOAD/filename.wad" and sometimes I was able to just use "filename.wad" even if it existed only in that folder. Haven't looked into that much since but it could be the same issue.

I had the same issue before in SRB2 before it was even reported, and I never really mentioned this issue cause it isn't like anything too major.

Are you in a netgame when you're adding it in-game? If so, you need to specify the subdirectory like Monster Iestyn said. SRB2 will not look inside subdirectories unless specified during netgames.

Apparently I forgot to mention here before, but I made a fix for this bug which has just been merged in:

I believe the issue actually only applied to netgames in the first place. Adding files from subfolders in single player always worked fine for me.
