The user directory of Hedgewars is a directory in which user-specific data, settings and add-ons (HWP files) are stored for Hedgewars.


Depending on the operating system, the directory is located at:

  • GNU/Linux: ~/.hedgewars
  • Mac OS X: ~/Library/Application Support/Hedgewars
  • Windows: %USERPROFILE%\Hedgewars

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 DLC) are stored
  • Demos. Contains recorded demos. They can be shown with hwengine, but only if the demo and Hedgewars versions match
  • 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
  • Videos: Contains recorded videos. These files can be played with any modern media player software. Not to be confused with “Demos”
  • VideoTemp: This is not always present, but when it is, it may contain for uncompleted or failed video recordings. If Hedgewars isn't running, you can safely delete these files to save disk space
