Search function didn't turn up anything useful, but. Trying to modify the default settings in Alpha Centauri.ini to turn off autosave and do a few other things. (This is using whatever the latest version is that you download from GoG for Windows, on a Windows 8.1 machine, no mods yet)

The lines I see that seem relevant:

Code: [Select]
Preferences=101001111000001101111110100101
More Preferences=1110100111011100101001

Binary flags. :mad: So, uh, what does each digit correspond to...?

It would be easier to just toggle settings from the in-game GUI.  Then you could look at the effect upon those values in the .ini file, and you'd know what bit controls what.

He held his arm too stiffly, and so was thrown back repeatedly, until at last I seized his forearm and snapped it back against itself. His training suffered while the arm healed, of course, but I felt this was a lesson he must learn early, and well.
