i've spent 15 minutes searching and would probably find what i'm looking for eventually, but maybe someone could point me in the right direction where to look. thing is: when i build and run the game, it almost always forgets my previous settings – like, turn off that music, and screen size, and so on. where can i put my own customized prefs (wont push them or anything) that will survive restarting from source code?
Open Options of FO and go to the last tab, "Other". See there are two buttons "Write Complete Config File" and "Write Persistent Config File". The second one will create a file persistent_config.xml that will be preserved between reinstallations and updates. You can also edit that file by hand and only keep the non-default options you want to preserve. It should be in the same folder where you have config.xml.
i humbly thank thee, oh experienced one
