Choose the right kind of setting item:


Transferred over the network. These are settings that are controlled by the server, such as CYCLE_RUBBER.


Local settings that are loaded from settings.cfg. You may change these setting in-game, but they are not saved when you quit. To make the changes permanent you must edit your configuration files.


Local settings. These are saved when quitting and include things like video card options, resolution settings, player names, instant chats, and the like.


The XItemLine variant is a specialization of the XItem< tString > class with the difference that it saves and reads whole lines of config files, while the standard item will only read the first word.
