Settings reset by every start of the game

Post by The Real Itachi » Sat Oct 12, 2019 8:39 pm

Hey everyone :D

Had a long brake from Teeworlds and decided today to play it again so i downloaded the newest version for windows 64
Also got a new pc so no Teeworlds files exist

First start everything normal. Made all Settings and played a bit so then i cloesd the game then started it later the day and had to do the settings again
nothing saved

I looked up the files in APPDATA and found out that no settings_ddnet.cfg file existed the game just doesnt create it automatically :/
so i made it up manually and just tried out (player_name "Itachi") that worked and the name Itachi was locked but then if i try to change it ingame to lets say "Itachi2342" then restart the game it doesnt overwrite the file to the new name

yeah so please help ^^

This means that DDNet client has no writing permissions in the config_directory. You could try giving full permissions for that directory to the user that runs DDNet client or alternatively remove the directory altogether to have it recreated properly.

Thanks for the tipps but it didnt solve the problem i gave all permissions i could possibly give re installed it and so on etc.
I mean other games have the same premissions and work just fine so i wonder why it doesnt also work with teeworlds

If you run DDNet client as administrator (just to test) the problem goes away, right?

Could you set "logfile foo.log" and upload the foo.log file after stopping client? (Make sure to remove sensitive information like passwords)
