Tried opening CFS2.CFG and got a message saying "No viewers registered. Would you like to try with default viewers?" I tried that (the default is QuickView) and got another message saying "May already be opened or locked by another application." I need to get in their to make some game adjustments..any ideas? Thanks.

Had the same problem. I right clicked the file and used the "open with" command. then used "word pad" to open it. Works fine now.

Lost Sheep, Go to the topic "Panning with the mouse". Last date and time on subject is 11-5-00 11:40am. In the postings you will find I too had a problem opening the cfg file maybe the fixes that helped me will help you.

MS Word opens it fine. Just save as a text file when you're through manipulating.
