    bit later than I'd hoped (I wanted to play it while still on vacation from work) but hey, this plus Chaos equals a hell of a release week.

    Alright I'm having a really frustrating time with this.

    None of the changes I make are saved. I turned down recoil, turned on stable running, made it so none of the UT2K4 weapons are replaced, and nothing at all gets saved when I start a game. Still recoils. Still flies all over the place when I run, and uses Ballistic weapons when specifically told not to.

    With 1.5, I could summon the weapons. Now that they all use their own crosshairs that grow and shrink and all that I can't do that. And I can't make it stop doing that in the options menu because this ties back into "nothing I do is saved".

    I'm going to have to go back to 1.5. :(

    No, our CMS automatically generates a forum thread for each news post. The name of the news poster appears as the forum thread starter. It's first-come first-serve around here... whoever grabs the news first posts it.

    Hey!! I am a RuneStorm developer.. and now since i have signed up at BU.. at last!!

    ok.. NEM.. you say you cannot save your settings?? check that your .ini files are not read-only... also when adjusting the settings before the match, you have to click on OK, for it to take effect.. we have had no problems like this, so it must be on your end..

    I just installed the Umod and I must say its great :D I especially love the Melee weapons :D very nicely done. I haven't done any experimenting but there was one problem I did have:

    I hosted a normal DM, and put the ballistic weapons mutator. I went to configure the mutator, and hit "universal crosshairs" and "use old crosshairs"; this set both inner and outter crosshairs to "invisible". I clicked "okay" twice to exit the mutator config and went into game; and the ballistic crosshairs were still there.

    I did the same to edit the recoil/innacuracy and none of the settings stuck

    I attempted this several times. I went into my systems folder and made sure all the .ini files are not read-only; and I still have this problem.

    Note that I did a clean install of this mod, as I have not used this mod on my PC before.

    Thanks for the excellent mod. Please advise on how I can proceed to enable the settings.

    So that's two of us now who can't get settings to stay.

    I think a small patch may be necessary.
