somehow the violence lock is missing from the main menu and can't be altered. anyone know how to fix it?

I believe the violence lock is actually registry controlled setup by the installer (unusual for an id tech game), so simply try reinstalling the game.

thanks I guess. well, if that is the only way then that sucks balls as my only copy of sof2 is off of an old portable hdd.
my disk is long gone in the mists of moving house 8 years ago so no install for me... :cry:

truth be told if I had the disk thats kinda the first thing I would of done :roll:

My Google-fu says change seta m_filter "0" to 1 in myconfig.cfg.

thanks but that was the 1st thing I tried before posting... to no avail... for a start there is no myconfig.cfg file only a standard one generated by the game engine and altering of that and or recreating a myconfig.cfg based on that has no effect...

What version of the game do you own? I recall certain European versions, and maybe the version sold by Walmart (assuming they were still doing that) have the violence lock permanently stuck on. I'm unsure if there's a patch to fix those versions.

Going by your portable HDD comment I'm assuming not, but are you running from a UAC protected folder like Program Files?
