Via autostart preset workaround, it seems to work fine , will only have to remember to resave the preset if any settings are saved. But still it was weird how it simply forgot settings it saved into an xml file, it only happened with video quality settings, it manages to remember everything else, display settings, color etc. Maybe using an SSD causes this somehow? Had no issues a few months ago when using a HDD to boot OS from.
