View Full Version : Comp Stomp Starting faction

03-13-2010, 12:40 AM
im looking for a way to change the Default Comp Stomp Starting faction from UEF to random....
i assume the option is in the Game.pref, but i cant find it

any advice?

also, anyone know if changing UnitCap = '500', to like 10000 will change this ingame?

forums wierd, so if this ends up as a double post, it's Gabe Newell's fault.

Anyway, unit cap change works - I'm told - since GPG posted/stated someplace that if you make it too high a value, something breaks. I think the pathing breaks.. but can't recall. It's easy enough to change/test/change back if needed, so try it out.

Default fields... I thought were supposed to be saved now post-patch. If not, search game.prefs for instances of the faction you picked. So, for example, I play UEF mostly and see UEF show up in meta data such as:

skin = 'uef',

So I would back up the file, change all the XXX faction stuff to "random" or "Random" and see what happened. Recover the backup, change one faction entry at a time to discover exactly which one does this (if any) then recover from backup again, make the one change (if available) and play on.

ok, after going through and reading it option by option, i was UNABLE to find one for that...
which is really too bad, cause changing it every game is REALLy Annoying
