Add option to disable writing to file system

See original GitHub issue

Issue Description

A clear and concise description of what the feature is. When the application is placed in a directory, where FXGL is unable to create/write files and/or directories, the FXGL application might not start, or the application runs with errors.

Describe the solution you’d like New FXGL setting/settings, that would allow disabling FXGL file writing and directory creation to file system.

Additional context (optional) Case scenario - if the FXGL application is packed in an installer, where during installation, user can select installation folder, and the user selects folder with elevated privileges, e. g. on Windows Program files, after the installation, the program does not run, because it could not create some directories and files.

Yes. I did set it to false. I recompiled everything again, and I can’t reproduce that again. Now everything is working fine in no-access directories. Thank You for implementing this feature so quickly 😃

Is this with FS write set to false?

initLogger 133 is, so it shouldn’t get inside the if … hmmm

        if (settings.isFileSystemWriteAllowed() && settings.isDesktop() && !settings.isExperimentalNative()) {
            Logger.addOutput(new FileOutput("FXGL"), LoggerLevel.DEBUG);
