Game resets to default settings..

34 posts in this topic

It's a bit hard to follow but it seems like the game is saving the xml just fine but it's not reading the settings back when you start the game?

Then it re-saves the file with everything set back to default.

Do we know what the full path is to the xml file? We had an issue a while ago regarding special characters in the path name not able to read the settings file.

From what i gather, the games saves and reads it back fine, when used in OFFLINE mode
But when he puts the game ONLINE, it wipes the xml and resets it to default.
Very strange

As I asked before and scking asked too, what is the full path to the file?

Do you have some special character in your Windows user name that the game is not liking?

Is it reading your convergence properly when offline, I must have missed that part?

I'm still trying to think about what could be happening here nkelly.

Can you follow these steps for me please.

  • Delete or rename the wwiiol.xml that is in your  C:\Users\Bryan\Documents\Battleground Europe\  directory.
  • Start the game in offline mode
  • Open the Preferences tab and untick SHOW GAME CREDITS
  • Click save
  • Go back a page
  • Select a Focke Wulf Fw 190A-4
  • spawn in and set the convergence to 666
  • despawn and exit the game
  • open your wwiiol.xml file, copy the contents and paste them into this forum please.
  • Close the wwiiol.xml file
  • start the game in offline mode again
  • Open the Preferences tab again and note whether SHOW GAME CREDITS is ticked or not
  • Go back a page
  • Select a Focke Wulf Fw 190A-4
  • spawn in and type .conv
  • what does it say the convergence is?
