For Windows 7:

Users/yourcomputer/My Documents/My Games/HOMEFRONT/GCGame/Config

Right click on GCEngine.ini select properties then click on Read-only to remove then click on apply.
Hi Buster

I had no probs finding it..Problem was none of my files were set to read only to begin with..

Non the less I gave them full control permissions and the fix simply did not do anything..

The thing is, this is much more widespread than just me or you having a few problems..

It seems the majority are having this problem since the patch..ergo..the patch has caused this..
In my opinion this is something Kaos/DE should be fixing and not their customers..

Some servers are not being advertised due to old *engine.ini data contained in a server profile directory. There is a fix in the latest .exe (available if you update via via hldsupdatetool).

Hopefully that should resolve any remaining issues for those servers not listed in the browser, but please PM be with your server setup details (include your email address) if you are still having problems and we'll help.

any one getting complaints, about machineguns not effective at long range any more.
I have had some complaints like that on my server at times. But I actually get more complaints that the hit boxes seem to have changed. I have even had it where my cross hair is dead on a person and I can not seem to hit them. I think it could also be a distance thing.
