from console log:

Trying to guess base path...
C:\Program Files\Return to Castle Wolfenstein - Game of The Year
Edition\tools/WolfSP.exe not found, prompting for base path.

it goes up one directory to search for the engine / basepath
if you use something like tools/Radiant it will fail

also noticed that if tools/ doesn't exist, tools/Radiant will fail
+ the nightly doesn't remember the suffix for gametools path, so you have to be
careful with the installer.

we should store the base path in the .game to try it before trying to go one dir
up. this requires updating the setup files and radiant's .game stuff.
