Metro 2033's Damned User.cfg Files

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Why are there three of these stupid things if every one of them is ignored? Where is the game getting it's settings from if it's ignoring the user.cfgs?

I try to force V-Sync though them one at a time and all at once, with or without write protection, and the game is never V-Synced. Same for other commends. I'm sure the write protection used to work...

I thought that Windows might have pulled the old virtualstore trick on the /43110/remote/ one, but I couldn't find it anywhere.

Can anyone tell me why they are ignored, and which one is supposed to be the one the game actually takes settings from?

Don't know much about the game but have you tried checking in the appdata folder. I've found many things draw settings from there instead of the program folder. The ones in the program folder may just be there as defaults.

I can't tell you why they're ignored, but for v-sync, using NVIDIA Inspector/NCP or AMD's equivalent should work.
