Can virtual files include a path ?

Simple question.
Can Virtual Files contain a path ?

e.g.
I currently have the following virtual files which work fine.
eqclient.ini virtualized as eqclient-character.ini

Can I create the following (well, I know I can create it but will it work?)
.\uifiles\classic_spell_icons\gemicons01.tga virtualized as .\uifiles\classic_spell_icons\gemicons01-character.tga

Sure it would look like.
Code:
uifiles/classic_spell_icons/gemicons01.tga

It depends on how the game loads the game though. Some times the game loads things in a odd manner, and it might not work.

Be aware you don't need to specify the path, unless there's 2 different files with the same file name in different folders, and you only want to virtualize one of them.

You can virtualize "gemicons01.tga" as "gemicons-character.tga" and this will work regardless of where the game stores the files.

Re: Can virtual files include a path ?

Unfortunately there are multiple versions of these files.

uifiles\default\gemicoms01.tga to gemicons23.tga
uifiles\default\Spells01.tga to Spells62.tga

also

uifiles\classic_spell_icons\gemicons01.tga to gemicons03.tga
uifiles\classic_spell_icons\Spells01.tga to Spells07.tga

I have created the following virtual files and dragged my character to them:
.\uifiles\classic_spell_icons\gemicons01.tga virtualized as .\uifiles\classic_spell_icons\gemicons01-character.tga
.\uifiles\classic_spell_icons\gemicons02.tga virtualized as .\uifiles\classic_spell_icons\gemicons02-character.tga
.\uifiles\classic_spell_icons\gemicons03.tga virtualized as .\uifiles\classic_spell_icons\gemicons03-character.tga
.\uifiles\classic_spell_icons\Spells01.tga virtualized as .\uifiles\classic_spell_icons\Spells01-character.tga
.\uifiles\classic_spell_icons\Spells02.tga virtualized as .\uifiles\classic_spell_icons\Spells02-character.tga
.\uifiles\classic_spell_icons\Spells03.tga virtualized as .\uifiles\classic_spell_icons\Spells03-character.tga
.\uifiles\classic_spell_icons\Spells04.tga virtualized as .\uifiles\classic_spell_icons\Spells04-character.tga
.\uifiles\classic_spell_icons\Spells05.tga virtualized as .\uifiles\classic_spell_icons\Spells05-character.tga
.\uifiles\classic_spell_icons\Spells06.tga virtualized as .\uifiles\classic_spell_icons\Spells06-character.tga
.\uifiles\classic_spell_icons\Spells07.tga virtualized as .\uifiles\classic_spell_icons\Spells07-character.tga

But it does not seem to be using the virtualized files.
