So, I put together a new SUPER computer and installed DOD on it. I tried going in and changing my settings but honestly, I have 15 years of settings saved on my old computer and I love the way everything is set on that one.
Is there a way I can copy all of my settings from the old computer to my new one? (I did it before and that was about 5 years ago and forgot what I did)
My Steam folder is about 195 gig and that will take forever... well, at least several hours and I want to make sure that will work before I do it. Is there an easier way?
humm Do you have like a USB drive or external hard-drive USB you could copy paste? The only real settings you would need from DOD would be like your Config file, and any Maps, Models, and Sounds downloaded. Possibly Logos directory as well Look in there for any downloaded item. These directories are in the dod directory
If you nav to there you should be able to copy paste and its not a lot of data really
You config file is in the dod directory There are more files in the dod directory that may be video audio settings as well such as settings.scr user.scr etc You may be able to copy paste all of the dod directory into your new PC using same directory
BTW please post the new PC parts like mother board processor graphics card ram type and how much and HD Thanks
Off the top of my head. Intel i7 8700 3.2 Processor - ASRock MOBO 32 gigs DDR4 memory Dual MSI GTX 980 graphics cards 6gig each 2 TB 7200 rpm Hard Drive (Might switch back to the SSD M.2 500 gig) Razer Man O War headset and Razer Keyboard
Definitely better than my old one, I just need my settings.
I recommend you to use the SSD drive as your boot drive for Windows. It will increase the performance and speed of your computer.
The config.cfg file is the most important one to save regarding DoD settings. If you installed the game in the default location, then just copy the config.cfg, from your old PC, and paste it (overwrite the new one) in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Half-Life\dod
If you need the maps, sprays, and other DoD files from your old computer, you can copy the entire DoD directory. However, I never did this and I do not know if it will work. In my case, every time I change my computer, I just copy the config.cfg file and start from zero again.
Hey Greek! Congrats for your new machine, if you still have access to the old location of DoD, you can copy the folder and once Steam is installed you can paste de folder to (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Half-Life\dod . After that, there's an option on Steam (Steam -> Settings -> Downloads ->Steam Library folders) where you can re-scan the default library directory and no need to set-up the game again and config options will be the same as the last time you changed it.
Don't forget the userconfig.cfg file in the same directory.

Thanks for the tips. I copied the entire Steam folder from my old PC to my new PC. Overwrote all files and fired it up. None of my setting or binds worked after that. I have done it before but it has been several years and for the life of me, I cannot remember what else I did.
I am dying to play on this one as I can truly see a huge difference in the graphics card.
all what you need just the UD file .. no need for copying the entire steam folder

I think you should shut it down, pack it up and give it to the wife. We don't need you having any further advantages Mr Greek :P
Nice rig Use the M2 as boot or at least pagefile for faster perf although with 32GB RAM you should page less anyway. When I move between computers I literally copy that config file with binds, rates etc. and let Steam re-download the rest. What I tend to miss most when swapping hardware are things like monitor response, mouse acceleration etc. - very specific things you don't realise you get used to, until you get a new mouse or new monitor and then can't shoot a thing for weeks while you re-learn it.
Anyway have fun playing with it all - I'm jealous . I hope to get a new one next year when Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 is released - no doubt the wife will have something to say about that... :/

I entirely agree! You don't need this new pc. All you need is a BAR Rifle. In other words, how could I even shoot you with the bazooka?
I copied the entire steam directory to my new PC and I am back to where I was. One problem I was having and it followed over to my new PC is when I swing my rifle it throws the weapon during my swing or after it leaving me with a split second where it is switching to my pistol. Always a disadvantage in a close fight. To add to that, sometimes with my new PC my rifle swing does not work at all or it has a delay. I got clobbered several times last night when it would not swing when I was rushing the opponent.
The graphics are definitely better and it seems l can see people across the map now when before they would look like part of the terrain. It will take some time to get used to this rig and once I do, I promise to go back to my favorite weapon, The Bar.
One other thing I just noticed my internet speed was less than half of my actual speed. I updated my driver and there it is again.... back to 200 mb
