I couldn't find any documentation about it.
If you uncheck the useshareduser_dir, where are the files stored? I made a complete search for a file on my home dir but found nothing...

According to the source code I would say files get stored in $HOME/.<NameOfYourGame>

String OS_Unix::get_data_dir() const {

    String an = Globals::get_singleton()->get("application/name");
    if (an!="") {

        if (has_environment("HOME")) {

            bool use_godot = Globals::get_singleton()->get("application/use_shared_user_dir");
            if (use_godot)
                return get_environment("HOME")+"/.godot/app_userdata/"+an;
                return get_environment("HOME")+"/."+an;

    return Globals::get_singleton()->get_resource_path();

Thank you very much.
I am not at the level that I could dare to look at the source and understand things, at least that was what I thought until I looked at your answer. The code looks really simple and I indeed found it at home, but hidden, thanks to the dot at the start of the name. Not even on the search system I was able to find.

All in all I learned what I wanted and also something even more valuable that is to have a look at the source with no fear of c++.
