Restoration of old settings, config, etc.

Postby [CS] vizwhiz on Sun Apr 03, 2011 6:56 pm

I just built a new puter with Win 7 64-bit OS.
New video card, etc.
Downloaded TF2 and DOD:S again so I can come in there!
I recall that in a few posts on here, others were helpful about pointing out what config files and such could be kept and transferred in order to keep all the original configs, etc. but can't put my finger on them at the moment.
Could any of you who are super-helpful in all things TF2 and DOD please point me to the right posts, or inform me of what files can be transferred to start where I left off instead of having to start over again? I found a few items that I thought would be helpful, and don't want to lose them!

Also, if this is common stuff, could you post this info as a sticky so it can be referred to later? I'm not certain I won't have to unload and do another fresh re-load at some point here...
Of course I talk to myself...sometimes I need expert advice! (author unknown)

The most critical file for settings in DOD:S is :

\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\YOUREMAILADDRESSHERE\day of defeat source\dod\cfg\config.cfg

You could also add valve.rc and autoexec.cfg (it's in the same folder). I'm not sure if you ever added anything custom to those files or not, but I sure did.

Someone else will have to tell you what to save for TF2.

Just save all of the folders after YOUREMAILADDRESSHERE.

\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\YOUREMAILADDRESSHERE\*

TF2 is stored in the same file structure as DoD.
