Savegames are not completely separated between profiles
Savegames are not completely separated between profiles. I played Doom2 in the profile automatically created. I made several savegames. These saves were visible in the home UI and inside the game. Then I crated a new profile and chose Doom2 game. In the UI for that profile no savegames were visible but inside the game (through Load Game menu) all the savegames from the automatically created profile were accessible. It seems that it should not be the case.
SaveGame|UI: Custom profiles have their own save folders
Each custom profile is assigned a unique empty save folder when the profile is created.
SaveGames can be queried for the current game profile’s save path.

I'm converting this to a Feature because the management of savegames is working as intended at the moment. The old "slot" mechanism is inherited from the original games, which made no effort to segregate savegames in relation to WAD usage.
What is needed here is to replace the old slot mechanism with a savegame collection that supports an unlimited number of save files and works the same across all games and profiles. That way the UI can only show the relevant save files for each game/profile.

This should be addressed before the 2.1 release. Basically, every profile needs to have a unique save folder.
The built-in profiles already do have separate folders because they have different game modes, but custom profiles needs to be assigned new folders.
