beastieThe graphical settings I set on the app don't actually save. Is there a way to create a .cfg or something to be loaded like the modules.cfg from the previous version?Did you click apply? Also make sure you don't have any old mastercomfig VPKs in your custom folder.
And all the old files are compatible. modules.cfg and custom.cfg will override the app's settings.
Okay so after working through it for a couple of hours, no matter what I set on modules.cfg or on client-modules.cfg all the settings seem to be ruled by the cvar "preset_xxxx" that is at the top of the client-modules.cfg file. Another thing I noticed is that everytime I launch the game my dxversion is reset to 9.0 (I do not have any -dxlevel command line on my launch options) and this also happens anytime I change settings through the in-game menu (as if you were using mat_dxlevel to change your dxversion).
This is what my modules.cfg looks like: https://pastebin.com/QNGUKAkz
This is what my client-modules.cfg looks like: https://pastebin.com/vGi0M4Ds
EDIT: going back to version 6.8.0b5 with the same module.cfg works fine. I honestly think it has to do with the resetting of dxlevel on the new version.
