Dunno what to tell ya. I've had the same problem. Some times I'll have something on, and then it'll be off. I have no clue how to fix it, but I have the same problem.
You have to set all your settings as soon as you go into the game, before you start playing or join a server or anything. That's always worked for me. If you ESC out while you're playing and change stuff though, it will revert as soon as you exit the game.
If that doesn't work, you could always make a .cfg file (cf. unnamedsoldier.cfg) that defines exactly what settings you want. Then just exec that config from your shortcut to the game.
Thanks Naotokhan! i tryed doin that aswell before the game started , but it still changes to high when am playing the game . how would i go about at makeing the .cfg file and would i replace the old 1 ? i dont no much about things like this but can find the unnamedsoldier.cfg in mohaa/main . thanks for the reply!
Well, there's different ways to do it. What I would recommend is go into your game, set everything exactly the way you want it, then exit out. Then go into your main/configs folder, and open up unnamedsoldier.cfg (if there are other .cfg files there, I would either delete or move them somewhere where the game won't find them). In your unnamedsoldier.cfg, you will see stuff like this (you will need to open it in WordPad to get the formatting right):
// // Key Bindings // unbindall bind TAB "+scores" bind ESCAPE "togglemenu" bind SPACE "+moveup" bind 1 "useweaponclass pistol" bind 2 "useweaponclass rifle" bind 3 "useweaponclass smg" etc. . . .
and farther down,
// Cvars // seta r_gamma "1.271605" seta s_volume "0.209877" seta s_musicvolume "0.900000" seta dmflags "8" seta r_texturebits "32" seta r_colorbits "32" etc. . . .
Make sure those numbers look right, and then save your cfg as something different, like "irelandloyalist.cfg". Make sure that is the only config file in the folder. Then right-click on the shortcut you use to open your game, and add this to your target line (using whatever name you made for your config file:
So your target line should now look something like this:
"C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\MOHAA\MOHAA.exe" +exec yourname.cfg
I believe that is the right way to execute it, someone can correct me if necessary because I personally have never added an exec command into my shortcut.
Hope that works for you.
Hello! i tryed going into the game settings and changeing everything to the way i wanted it and saveing and exited out, went to the unnamedsoldier.cfg and checked the sittings with yours they were different and seta rcolorbits "32" werent there i saved the cfg as nirelandloyalist and deleted forsight.cfg which was there to, and then made nirelandloyslist.cfg into a excute like you says in the modaa shortcut i use to play the game and saved it, logged on the game and it played ok for like 2 minutes then it started changeing to high again .when i looked in the main/config folder after the game i noticed that nirelandloyalist.cfg i made was there and also unnamedsoldier.cfg and forsight.cfg was there to. i think the all have different settings and maybe messin it up but the unnamedsoldier.cfg and forsight keeps comeing up no matter how many times i do this. thanks for your reply and your help!
Are you running foresight? Can't say I ever have so that may be causing your problems, I don't know. One thing you might try, make your custom config file Read-Only in the file properties. Forgot to say that last time. That will stop the game from changing your settings back. In fact, come to think of it, just use unnamedsoldier.cfg instead of a custom name, that way the game won't try to create a new one either. So take your irelandloyalist.cfg or whatever it's called, and rename it as unnamed soldier and get rid of the other two cfg files for now. Then set that unnamedsoldier.cfg to read-only, make sure it has all the settings you want, and change your shortcut exec line to exec unnamedsoldier.cfg instead.
Sorry to ramble, I'm kinda thinking with you here. Hope that works.
tryed that and still it changes to high, i dont use forsight but most the maps i go on use it. forsight keeps comein up in my main/config folder. and thats what must be changeing my settings but i dont no how to get rid of it or to stop it comeing up or even if i could get it to stop changeing my settings that would be great. thanks once again for your time.

I don't understand why you have Foresight in the first place. If you are not running or administrating a server, you should not have any Foresight files on your machine. In fact, even if you are running a server, there are way better options than Foresight :D
