[ANNO 1800] [FIXED] Turning off right-click menu resets on the next game start

Problem

I change the right-click menu to off but on the next game start it’s reset to on.

Cause

Changing the option isn’t saved into the engine.ini file. Because of this, the change is not permanent and only affects the current gaming session.

Solution

Change the option manually in the engine.ini instead:

Manually change settings
All settings that can be changed in the game under Options can also be changed manually in the config-file. This can be useful if the game itself can't be started.

Where do I find the file ?

The file can be found in your user files in the folder config and is named engine.ini. Documents\Anno 1800\config

How can I edit the file ?

The file can be edited with any text editor although I don't recommend the windows editor as the formatting can get lost.
