What Quake II level would you like to see ported to Q2W next?:

Config Bug

February 09, 2009 - 17:06pm

I have noticed that no matter what I try, the config isnt saving what i change in game. Do I need to manually edit the config file or is there a way to make it save changes in the game?

WADUP GIBZ!@!! This is DeNL82 from heat.net(heat users never used to add ".net" to heat back n the day, remember?)

Anyways, if you do not remember this, this is the guy who had held a grudge on you for yearzzzzz ever since you ownt me like 50 points to -20 points on edge, wayy back in the day, by JUST USING SHOT GUN!!

That shouldn't be the case. What platform are you on, and what settings in particular do not seem to be saving? As long as the game exits normally (read: doesn't crash), most console variables are flushed to your config. On Unix variants, this is ~/.quake2world/default/quake2world.cfg. On Windows, I think it's C:\My Documents\My Games\Quake2World\default\quake2world.cfg. But there should be little reason to edit the file.

basically this was a wide array of commands, none of which stuck for me, here are some of the basic ones that wouldnt save, im on windows xp sp2:

all cl_ and r_ commands
bind key "function"

I prefer to edit autoexec.cfg instead of quake2world.cfg. The game doesn't mess with that one so it's easier to keep it well arranged.

This is kind of a shot in the dark, but you might need to manually create the /my documents/my games/quake2world folder, unless it already exists. If I remember correctly, this is what I had to do when q2w first switched user data over to that folder.

I just did a test with a nice fresh compile from SVN and a clean configuration: it looks like the problem is the 'My Games' directory. It doesn't get created when it doesn't exist.

In case anyone was following this thread, this has been fixed as of 2/26 (revision 222).

Ah, good to know TRaK. I've created a ticket in Trac so we can track this one:


(I really just wanted to use 3 homonyms for "track" in one post.)
