The User Preferences, set under Option on the intro screen, seem to attach to the save game files.

It would make more sense for these to attach to the local installation of the game. I can see two advantages to this, firstly when you create a new game you automatically get settings that you like, but secondly and possibly more importantly, when a PBEM host creates a backup it goes out with *their* preferences attached, so I have to reset them them every time I get a backup.

Just thought that if this wasn't a major coding change it would be helpful to implement.

I agree. But I have found that while making a change may be simple enough, the hard part is finding where in the code to make a change! I will add this to the list and see what I can do.
