Once you've set up a game, is there a config file separate from the game data that another sysop could use to bang a game with the same settings?

Suddenly you're Busted!

Normally you would use the export option to create a twa file, give that to the other sysop and they could import it to their server.

When you go to bang the second game , tell it to use the data of the first game ..
or you could export the first game into a TWA and import that into the second game slot ..

But the first method is quicker.

All of the config settings are stored in TWCFIG.DAT. I suppose it might work if you just hand off that file. But if you export a freshly banged game, that's the most thorough way to give someone your game edits.
