So theres this bug in a new game NFS: Rivals that makes any changes to the settings in-game to never actually take. The game forces all settings to 'max' and wont let you lower them. So I figured I could manually edit the settings file, and set it to read-only, and that way the game couldn't change the file.
But it is. I've tried 3 times now. I'll edit the settings file, I'll right click on it, click properties, and check the "read only" box, and click OK. Then I'll start up the game and close the game, and find that the file has been modified and is no longer set to read-only. How the heck is this possible?! What's the point of read-only if any program can modify it any time it wants?
Note: The game is NOT running in administrator mode.
