1. It is not a bug. When a preset loads automatically, all the parameters load into the settings tab.
2. Stop all generators, stop Spooky2, go to your /Spooky2/Data folder and delete the files CH3.txt, CH5.txt, CH6.txt, CH7.txt, and CH10.txt. Also, delete any other CH" something".txt file that exists there.
Relaunch Spooky 2 and see if the behavior persists. These files keep the record of the last configuration for every generator, and if they get somehow corrupted, then a new installation won't reset them.
