Metro 2033 cfg. re-writes itself

So I want to enable those cfg. commands like v-sync and fov in order to supposedly get more fps. The problem is that I can change the cfg. setting on my steam metro 2033 folder but the "application data" metro 2033 folder changes itself every time I start the game. And I know v-sync is not enabled since I can see that stupid screen tearing from the THQ logo. Also the fov looks consolish and that way I know that I did something wrong. I tried setting the cfg. file to "read only", I tried changing SYSTEM permission to deny writing, but it just created another SYSTEM user that has "full permission". Windows is a big fat troll, any help would be appreciated.

  1. the v-sync is still not working, even when the three cfg. files say that it is on, the fov and gi work but gi is giving me weird texture issues

    I cant even use the program anymore, it says something about "unhandheld user error debug" etc. Even when steam is closed
  3. Did you clean your temp files?
    Have you tried re-installing?

    I am using D3Doverride to enable v-sync and I got a 3-4 fps boost. Then I said f_ck it and I set everything to max, including NVIDIA physx (I have a 6950) in dx10 and I get constant 60 fps. I think dx11 is a joke, and spending 500 dlls on another 6950, PSU and motherboard just to see some 3d brick walls is not worth it. Thanks for your help.

    Try this: Open the cfg using the notepad (as opposed to wordpad). After you make the adjustments, press the "save as" button. Then select "all files".

  9. couldn't you make the .CFG a Read only file? then it won't change
