Help resetting settings?

I set the neural net to have 100 nodes in the middle layer. I then accidentally set it to have 25 layers, which made it have 23 layers with 100 nodes per layer...

Now whenever I click the settings gear, the program stops responding, so I can't reset it.

I've tried deleting and redownloading it, but it still has the problem whenever I try.

Any help?


The total number of layers is capped at 10 so there should be at max 8 intermediate layers with 100 nodes (that's still quite a lot). Are you sure that the settings don't open at all?  What happens if you wait for a bit?

If waiting doesn't help the only option I can think of would be to delete the PlayerPrefs file. (Follow the path described in the link - the company name should be my name and product name should be Evolution)

Yeah I tried waiting, I also tried running it in poor quality with lowest resolution and after about 10 mins of waiting while it wasn't responding there wasn't any progress. 

In Regedit I deleted the Evolution entry under your name and it worked! Thanks m8!

I tried this, but when I got to the unity tab in regedit the only tab in it was "UnityStandalone", need help!


Since I barely ever use Windows myself I can't really help any more than point to the Unity documentation for where you can find the PlayerPrefs file. I'm not familiar with the Windows registry at all, so I don't know why it wouldn't be there. Did you follow the exact path given by the documentation? 

"On Windows, PlayerPrefs are stored in the registry under HKCU\Software\[company name]\[product name] key, where company and product names are the names set up in Project Settings."

I will definitely fix this issue once I get time to work on this project again (probably the end of next month)


Its not the Unity tab, in regedit if you find and remove this: Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Keiwan Donyagard\Evolution it will reset everything, including losing all your saved creations.

If you have creatures you dont want to lose, edit Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Keiwan Donyagard\Evolution\NEURAL_NETWORK_SETTINGS_...  back to the default setting which is written as 31 30 00 

Thanks, It worked! :D
