@Gwarl ... I may be the only person playing AA lately, so I'll ask... can we reset the user account to clear the current settings?
I ask because there are instabilities in the game that I think are related to the "randomize artifacts" option. It may be that running with standard artifacts only helps to stabilize. Once the option is set to randarts, it doesn't seem any successive attempts to switch it back actually work.
What do you think?
