Fix for reset (( UI/Videosettings ))

Hyro @ Kirin Tor

Problem UI/Videosettings begin reset ::::
1: Go to your Dalaran WoW folder
2: Open your WTF map
3: Delete config file
4: Start the game
5: Adjust your settings
6: if you log exit the game and come back in it should work

Hope this helped

I was getting really frustrated with this and than i found your topic, the thing is you forgot to mention you have to delete both configs, one in the WTF folder and the other one in your main folder, than this will work - oh yeah, and thank you! :)

Would like to add a bit to this. Following the original post didn't work for me. I did fix it doing this...

1.) Do what original post said, log into the game, exit to desktop

2.) Copy config file in main folder, paste on desktop for backup

3.) Delete config file in main folder

4.) Delete config file in WTF folder

5.) Start the game, login, set the settings and exit

6.) Log back in to make sure the changes are kept this time

P.S. If you cannot log in after deleting these config files make sure you have a file named "" in "Data" -> "enUS" (or "enGB"). Edit this file, remove all text in it and put in "set realmlist". Don't type in quotes for any of this. This file is not always necessary, I did not have one until I found out it was missing but in this case it appears to help with getting connected without a config file.

I tried the above but the client doesn't seem to save settings on exit. I edited a few lines in the WoW/ file manually with notepad.

I changed:

SET gxResolution "1920x1080"
It kept defaulting to another res.

SET useUiScale "0"
The UI was so tiny I could barely read anything.

SET realmName "Algalon"
Whenever I logged it dropped me on Kirin Tor

SET accountName "MyUsername"
Saved me from having to delete "default" and type my name at the login screen.
