View Full Version : Need help with Bulletstorm INI Editor (SOLVED)
02-24-2011, 06:56 PM
I have tried using this editor via copying and relocating the ini to desktop, within the file's directory, AND as someone here said via copying and pasting the decrypted file into Notepad, then back into the editor after editing. I CAN edit the files, but none of the methods saves the edited changes.
These aren't even read only ini files, what the heck is it with this tool? I know a lot of people claim they've gotten it to work, but there are also some like myself whom have been unsuccessful. I've tried both the 1.0 and 1.1 version of the tool btw.
I also find it odd that the tool although by default is set to look only for ini files, saves the edited file as a BAK file. I have of course renamed them to ini type files after saving, but the edited changes don't stay.
Is there some line of text within the decrypted file that needs to be deleted that has to do with the encryption itself? Also, what is the point of the title update? Is it only necessary for mp play? Any help would be appreciated.

Is it possible that the game is using its "default" set of INI's to override your edited one instead of using it? Unreal Engine games tend to have "default setting" INIs that are used to recreate the user-affected INIs if they ever get deleted.
Also, are you sure you're editing the correct INI? The one in your user folder, not the game's install directory?
Perhaps go back and review other posts where people mention using the INI editor. You might be missing a step somehow that people assumed was obvious, but wasn't.
Apologies if this is all obvious and you're already doing this, this is just a basic checklist.

I've tried editing both the game files and the user configs in the My Games folder. The default configs is not the problem. They are not being reset after putting them back in their folders or launching the game. They won't even save in a separate location like desktop with the edited changes.
Thanks for trying but I really do need help from someone who's successfully used the tool.

I was finally able to successfully save an edited ini. Here's how I did it. This is based on advice I got on XtremeSystems and mostly the follow up search I did which lead me to this (http://www.gamebrood.com/2011/02/23/bulletstorm-pc-fix-and-fixes-to-crashes-freezes-errors-physx-crash-graphics-issues-black-screen-installation-error-cant-launch-gfwl-problem-and-more/) site. Note this method uses the inicrypt.exe editor, NOT the Bulletstorm INI Editor by Alexx, which did not work for me. You can get inicrypt.exe here (http://mod.gib.me/bulletstorm/inicrypt.exe).
1) Place the inicrypt.exe app in the directory where the files are you want to edit.
2) Double click on inicrypt.exe to run it.
3) Right click on the ini you want to edit and click Open with> and browse to the inicrypt.exe file you just placed in the directory you're editing in and click open.
4) You then have to double click the ini you previously right clicked and it will automatically open in Notepad.
5) Then all you have to do is edit the file and save before closing.
You should then be able to right click on any ini in that directory and see inicrypt.exe in the list of Open with> options, click on it, then double click to open the ini. This is still clunkier than I thought using an editor for these files would be, but IMO it beats the Bulletstorm INI Editor, which was always trying to save the ini as a BAK file.
