[bf1942] Killer Camera?

My experience is that you can only make changes to the
serversettings.con file while the server is NOT running (well, I guess
you can make them any time you want, but they don't "stick" unless the
server isn't running).  It's always been that way, as far as I remember.

BFSM can change certain parameters "in flight" because it controls those
parameters itself--for example, kick on high ping is done by BFSM
monitoring the current ping of players, and, when it sees someone
exceeding the set limit, it sends a kick command to the server.  If you
use BFSM to change the parameters in serversettings.con while the server
is running, the change has no effect.

Bottom line: if you want to change serversettings.con, stop the server
FIRST, and then start it up again after you've saved your changes.

Same here.  When I put it into serversettings.con and run the server its
longer there.

Me too. Additionally, if I put it into the serversettings.con, I seem to
have them 'mysteriously' disappear. Does the server somehow write back
that file on typing exit or such? - I have bfv running in a screen,
edit the con file, reattach, exit the server, and re-execute it. When I
look at the file, my changes are *gone* - Im stumped.
