Windows: config_store.exe + config_retrieve.exe?

Post by Pathos » Mon Apr 15, 2019 4:20 am

Where are the configs stored when using config_store.exe + config_retrieve.exe? When DDNet/Teeworlds files are deleted (including config_directory), DDNet recalls the previous settings somehow. I'm trying to reset the whole thing.

It seems like these two files came with one of the more recent patches.

config_store stores the config inside of the map file itself. config_retrieve pulls out the config stored in the map and puts it into a regular .cfg file in the CWD.

@Pathos, its not for the settings config, its for map configs. Before you couldnt write map settings in the little box in editor, instead you needed to create a .cfg file including the map commands.

This is a map config. Check out dummy card for further information.
