The Brightness, Contrast and Video Options (particle effects, shadow settings, trilinear, etc.) settings are not preserved from session to session.

You mean the cvar's aren't saved in config.cfg? Yes, I know. Would you like those to be saved? All right, just tell me exactly which cvars should be saved. I just didn't activated that flag (archive) of those cvars, since I didn't know whether ppl would like it or not.

Joe, not sure the names of them, but basically the gamma and contrast variables so that when JoeQuake is restarted the previous level of luminosity is restored + those QMB particle settings and such in video options.

Probably most of these variables. I haven't fully explored all of them, but I did notice that some of them did not seem to be written to config.cfg and even if I manually set the gamma/contrast in config.cfg, JoeQuake didn't seem read them to restore them.

JoeQuake manual excerpts wrote:

============
New cvars
============

r_explosiontype
Sets various types of explosions.
Values: 0 - normal (affected by gravity), 1 - normal (old style), 2 - just sprite,

Its value is 0 by default.
