Changing graphical settings that requires vid_restart don’t display in UI before the game is restarted.

it does not show the changes.

mapoverbrightbits is latched cvar
it requires a restart

Harlekin: i made a more options for et vanilla and there it shows changes

Note: These are latched cvars. A popup that ask to restart right awyas might do the trick.
See modification by Harlekin too.

#1 Updated by Spyhawk 24 days ago

  • Status changed from New to In Progress
  • % Done changed from 0 to 50

The above mentioned settings are now fixed in UI.
The language selection (cl_lang) still needs to be fixed. It requires more than a vid_restart.

#2 Updated by Spyhawk 19 days ago

  • Target version changed from 2.76 to 2.78
  • % Done changed from 50 to 80

I moved the language settings from the game options to the system options page, so it can reused the same logical code of vid_restart.
However, the latched cl_lang requires a complete restart of the application. It is probably possible to introduce a check in case cl_lang has been modified and implement a complete client restart. but this is not something I want to dive in so close to release (it might breaks the client a bit...).

Delaying this last part to the next release. The other graphical options should behave and update correctly.
