I understand what you're trying to say here... but even .INI files will not be portable if relative path settings are not used inside
I must say that the worst possible option are .CFG files that are encrypted. When I created my SNES DVD I used 2 different emulators; Snes9x and ZSnes...
Snes9x is registry based while ZSnes is .CFG / DAT based. My SNES DVD has various settings that the user can select from relating to display / controls etc... With Snes9x it's easy to edit a few registry changes while with ZSnes I had to create seperate .CFG / .DAT files for each setting
