    As the title suggests. After the Master Server was fixed MBII reset and I lost my name, key binds, server favorites and my achievements. Not such a big deal for me as I have only been playing this year but it could be for older players. Has this happened before and are there steps to prevent this from happening to others?

    Sounds like something has switched your engine from jamp to MBII Client or visa-versa.

    You should always have all your set binds/keybindings to a seperate config file

    /writeconfig myconfig

    Then when you lose it

    /execute myconfig

    ent is right, it all seems like switching engines.

    But whatever reasons are, here is some information about where personal data is stored:

    Settings, including keybinds:
    Jedi Academy\GameData\MBII\jampconfig.cfg
    Jedi Academy\GameData\MBII\openjk.cfg
    My Documents\My Games\OpenJK\MBII\openjk.cfg

    Achievements:
    Jedi Academy\GameData\MBII\achievements.dat
    My Documents\My Games\OpenJK\MBII\achievements.dat

    Which path is actually used depends on engine you choose.
    More over, it's also important how Movie Battles is getting started, via MBII Launcher or via .bat file; I've got a feeling that Launcher pass some additional command line parameters those affect the directory for storing data.

    You can also consider storing binds in separate file, and execute that file from base config, like Gunman121 suggested.
