So, I've been looking at the tome options a bit. It looks like they're being stored in the savefile... but it strikes me that pretty much none of them except the automatiser (and maybe auto-haggle?) settings are things people would want to change per character. The rest are things I know I'd just want to set once and forget about, or change depending on mood rather than anything else (music, for example).
Is there something similar to esettings, for modules? (that would seem most appropriate for settings). Maybe dividing options into engine (esettings storage), module (??) and current game (savefile storage) might be nice?
(On another note, I've found esettings to be a bit buggy (things I know exist are just returning the default))...
You are correct. I find it annoying to have to reset the ten or so options that I *always* change every time I start a new character. However, if you dump them into player.prf (the U option off the = menu) I think that they are there for all further characters.
