Hello,

STK stores (latest) settings in config.xml, e.g. the track that was last driven and the number of KI karts. However, the number of rounds is not remembered/stored. When I have it set to 1 (track "ravenbridge mansion"), abandon the race, quit STK, start it again, and select the same track again, the number of rounds is 3 (not 1). Is this intention, a bug, or how do I have to edit config.xml, so that also this number "sticks"?

In config.xml, there is 'numlaps' under 'RaceSetup', but the comments explain that these are default values and not values of last settings stored. Sorry, maybe I misunderstand how config.xml works.

EDIT:
What do the gamemode numbers mean? (0, 1002, 1100, 1101, 2000, and 2001)
Why are there video settings and (further down) also GFX settings, some of them seem to be related to each other (at least when seen in the GUI).
What are news and what happens of news_frequency is set to something >0? What is the unit of this frequency? How is the time translated in news_last_updated and addon_last_updated? I see the numbers 1596559696 and 1596558855 there, respectively.
And finally (for the time being ;)), what is Degraded_IBL? The comment says "specular IBL", but I have no clue what it is, and I assume that this is only available in config.xml, or what is it in the GUI?

Thanks for sharing your hints!
Best regards, 7wells
