*sigh* it seems I've been having more problems lately than the Clinton administration.

Anyway, I usually play Solo Mode with JA+ and I usually type in the console "/exec server" and it'll start a server with all my options where I can log in as an admin. I reinstalled JA+ and made a new server.cfg. This one is a little bit different, and it worked the first time. However, now every time I use it it gives me an error about it being too large or something. Every config I write using "/writeconfig" does the same thing! What's the problem!?

It's too large.

Wasn't that obvious?

There are limits on cfg files. Firstly, they can't exceed a certain filesize. Secondly, they can't contain more than a set number of CVARs. Config files are also subject to the naming restrictions every other file is subjected to.


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

KouenIt's too large.

But if using /writeconfig makes it too large, what can I do? I didn't really change hardly anything except a few binds! I used a server.cfg generator for the server.cfg so what can I do to make it smaller?
