Description

Games have a multitude of options and settings that one may wish to configure on a per-profile basis instead of using per-game cvars or custom profiles.

To facilitate game configuration for advanced users, Home should offer a way to enter autoexec.cfg-like free-form commands that can then be used to change cvar values, issue commands, or define aliases. This fully replaces the need to use command line options to customize the game.

In practice, each profile in Home can have a popup edit box whose contents are saved in the profile. There could also be a similar game-wide edit box opened via the game family's action menu.

However, there needs to be a mechanism for ensuring that these custom settings are only in effect when the particular profile is loaded (e.g., #1617, #2238).

The Home game library UI now has profile-specific options for a few things, such as Fast Monsters.

Profile-specific .cfg files are missing, though.
