hey guys,

I know i have seen somewhere how to make the settings save for the patch installations. i have only just noticed recently that they aren't saving what i want, i.e. display roadsides, reflections in water etc.

can someone help me out with this, or point me in the right direction for the correct thread where i saw it first.

I'm on pcmdaily's db v2.1, with 1.0.4.1 patch

the file size of the local.cdb file that i have at the minute is 1143kb. I know the official one and the pcmdaily one are different sizes.

and before people suggest it, I have made the local.cdb file 'read-only' and 'unread-only' and the problem still persists with either setting

Well sometimes I notice if you make a change even that small to the local.cdb you have to restart your computer.

Yes. After you change to read only you should try restarting your computer to see if its changed at all.

Restarting the computer is not needed after making a file read-only or the opposite.

But there are several local.cdb files and maybe you are looking at the wrong file. Search for local.cdb in "My documents" and remove the read-only there.

I might have misunderstood the question but have you got the 'forced graphic options' box ticked ?

should the local.cdb in mydocs be read-only or not read-only?

problem solved! I made the file no longer a read-only file (after a made it a read only file yesterday in trying to fix the problem) and in the options I ticked one of the boxes that required the game to be relaunched to take effect as well as the others I want selecting, and it seems to have worked.

thanks to everyone for the help Smile I have spectators and flowers again on my stage and the water looks so lovely again Wink
