I just reinstalled the patch, to make sure that the default cfg files were in place. tried both solutions. Nothing worked :/
Are these changes being saved? Are you using Galaxy? It can/will revert the files depending on your settings.
They are being saved, the first solution, which is changing the config.cfg vm_discipline to vdiscipline_last kept changing back and then I set it to read only to keep it from changing, and it still didn't work. idk what galaxy is tho, i edited it using notepad++
