Hey all,
for the longest time i have tried to set water effects to water=3 and what not. everytime I do that I change it and save it and then go try it out but I dont see a change. Then when I go back to the conf it has changed itself back to its origional number. Has this happened to anyone else? Any advice on what to do?

I assume you have one of the latest Nvidia graphics cards? If not, you can't use water=3 and IIRC the conf file will revert to a 'useable' setting.

If you do have one, best to post your dxdiag and someone knowledgeable will no doubt assist.

Good luck.

As I bellive I have read someware (not 100% sure but 95%) you also need to have 32 enabled on your monitor and not 16

Make sure you're changing the Water=3 line under the OpenGL section, and not DirectX.

Like the above said, Make sure you have a 6___ series card or better.

Last but not least, make sure your Terrain(?) is on Perfect settings.
