Black ops console commands will not save.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I recently just reinstalled black ops after a reformat. Went to change the normal console commands i set like com_maxfps and cg_drawfps ect ect. I set them and check to make sure they changed but as soon as i join a game they are reset to default? Any clue?

I have no idea if this would be causing it, but is your config_mp.cfg a read only file?

If you dont know, it can be found under steam, steamapps, common, BO, players...

You could also try editing those lines in there.

Yeah i checked that, and i also manually changed them on the config file which still didn't work. Even if i change them then change the config file to read only it doesn't work.

I meant that the config should not be read only. If you have tried all of that then I honestly don't know what else to suggest. Sorry, I hope you can get it working.

I know you meant it should not be read only by default i was just trying to manually change it on the config file then set it to read only so the game could not change it back. This really makes no sense to me. The settings worked fine previously.

Update:
Completely uninstalled black ops & steam. Made sure all the left behind files got removed. Reinstalled steam and black ops. Set the console, joined a game and went back to default again. Totally clueless and frustrated.

I could be wrong but have you checked to se if Steam cloud is checked?
If you don't know where to find it, go to steam - settings and click on the downloads + cloud tab. Also, i think your running xp but in windows 7 if you turn user control setting to off or low (after) you install black ops you will then have problems with settings. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Have you tried putting "seta" in front of those commands... like "seta com_maxfps XXX"

Update:

Been reading a lot of forums and from what i can tell they pretty much disabled the console because of hackers. You can get around it by setting the console before every match but it's not even worth the bother. Guess it didn't make enough sense to them to only disable the questionable commands. Even setting the config file as read-only has no affect.
