|0023478||AI War 2||[All Projects] Suggestion||Jul 29, 2020 6:13 am||Jul 29, 2020 5:38 pm|
|Reporter||Puppet Master||Assigned To||x4000Bughunter|
|Product Version||2.108 Galactic War Units And The Exostrike|
|Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0023478: Please can last used game settings that load on a new game be saved outside of save files. + bonus bug report|
|Description||If one deletes their latest save campaign, the game loses the information on the last used settings and goes back to default.|
Given DLC2 has many factions, some repeatable in use, this fix is going to save a lot of people some setup hassle if they don't know to keep the last campaign and not delete it. i.e. more important the more content the game has
ADDITIONAL BUG: The Galexy map selection doesn't save at all after you have entered a game, I'm guessing the above change would be the ideal time to fix such

Wait, I'm confused as to what file you are deleting. Are you referring to the Internal/LastLobbySettings.save file? That should be invisible in the interface of the game, but that is where we save all your settings. If you delete that, you are deleting your settings, but that's only something that should be possible via the file system.
If you are deleting a campaign, that should have no impact on anything, period, with the lobby. The lobby has no code to go look at other campaigns if you do a custom start. It just loads Internal/LastLobbySettings.save. If that is not able to load for some reason (such as you had DLC enabled the last time, but not this time), then it will indeed go to a default format. But you can take any existing save you have and load that into the lobby to copy its settings.
If you are seeing other behavior, please let me know.
On the other bug, that one would be nice as its own bug report, but I'm not sure I follow. Map settings, to my knowledge, are loading fine from the saves and campaigns, but I'm not sure what the exact behavior is you're seeing. It probably randomizes which planet you start on, but the map type and size and all the visible settings on the side should all be the same.
Main Menu -> Load Game -> Select Latest Campaign -> Delete Campaign -> Confirm -> Back -> Custom Start
At which point everything will be set to default. I did nothing outside of the game.
||Huh -- that is extremely odd. I'll have to look into it when I get a chance, but it should not be doing that. Did you disable an expansion before going back into the lobby, by any chance? Or a mod? Because that might be the actual cause.|
||After a bit of poking, it looks like Deleting Any Campaign (not just the most recent) will reset the "last used custom map settings"|
This was happening before I started bug hunting, it only just occurred to me to post it as I've been focused on DLC2 testing.
Not using any mod.
||This has been an ongoing thing for a while now. It will not keep your faction setups and default you on everything after deleting campaigns.|
