Well, I realize this doesn't help you now, but in the future you should probably go into Explorer, and find your Config.CFG file. Right click it, hit properties and select "Read Only."

This lets changes be made, but everytime you restart Half-Life your settings are back to their original. As for getting your old config.cfg file back.. You could try a system restore, reinstalling Half-Life, or asking a friend to send you their file.

Yea, that read only thing was a good thing to have in the days of Mr Satan's Server.

But if your ESF is running choppy now I suggest to reinstall, I know you're too lazy to do it, but it isnt that hard. And that way you will have it running at the default settings again. If you don't want to do that then check the usual stuff: rates, fps max, in game video settings, and what not.

i think you could also just delete/rename your config.cfg.
i'm not sure but i think the game generates one with the default settings.

AHAHAHA XD Just desserts....









However I'll tell you how to fix it. Delete your config file and start a game. A new one will be made.

And in order to prevent such things, finish your settings and save them and then quit the game. Then make your config a read-only file. That way it cannot be changed permanently.

Say your name is esfn00b. You start the game and change it to "Odin." It'll stay as odin until you quit. When you Start the game again, it's back to esfn00b. All setting work this way.

I had a similar thing happen to me in a game of counterstrike and doing this fixed everything.
