I am having trouble with the code for the Gameshow maker. My problem is that some of the code isn't working like it's supposed to. (I've typed the code in red to make it easier to read.) Here is what I'm talking about:

I have the following code in my setup file:
// Board Display
val=400 // # value increase of each row; 0 to disable values
valstart=400 // value to start at
valdirection=down // value increases in rows going up/down
valfinal=0 // # value of final rows, 0 to keep trend


I want the values to start at 400 at the top, then increase by 400 as we go down the column (so 400, 800, 1200, 1600, 2000). The values start at 400 like they should. However, the next three rows are 500, 600, and 700, and the final row is 1000.

I have this code in my setup file as well:
// Bonus questions
bonust=Daily Double! // Text to show if bonus


I want the text to say "Daily Double!" when a bonus question comes up. However, it instead says "Double Jeopardy!"

Another problem is this code:
// Final question
finalq=true // Enable final question, true/false
finalt=Games // Text to show


I want to have the Final Jeopardy clue with a category of "Games". But, when the game gets to the final round, it just says "Final Jeopardy!" And, I have a clue and a response in the file for the game, but it gave me an error message instead.

Another problem is with this code:
// Question Timer
timercount=0 // Seconds to count, 0 to disable timer


I have it set to disable the timer. But instead, the timer lasts 32 seconds.

I have used these exact same files in the Jeopardy maker, so I'm not sure what went wrong with the final jeopardy question. Any help would be appreciated!

NOTE: Yes, I saved the file. I am positive because everything else in the setup file changed when I input my own settings.

Check that you are not overriding these values again in a second settings
file inherited as a preset. That's a new feature controlled by a line near
the top of the settings file.  Most likely it is inheriting from a Jeopardy
preset that has its own values.

Thank you for responding so quickly, and I am sorry I did not do the same! I figured out that the problem was that I was importing settings from the preset Jeopardy text file. However, I still cannot figure out how to post the Final Jeopardy category and clue. Any help would be much appreciated!

There is a final.txt in the questions folder.  Is that what you mean? Not
sure what you are referring to as the category and clue.  Maybe send the
exact text to be specific.

Ah, I see! I had the file saved as "finalj.txt" in my game folder instead of "final.txt". When I changed that, the clue and the response showed up. I thought there would be a way to include a final category, too, but I guess I don't need to.
