you were using the default profile, and then you created another one, and now it's working ?
Profiles are intended to allow several persons to play on the same computer, each using his own settings, and having his own saved games.
Except that, it has no influence on the game.
Oops, that's right, I just checked and my memory failed last time; the order is indeed : ..., BG hard, indoor hard, synthetic, ...
If you have the speed ratings for each surface in real life, I'll be glad to know them.
If you can find the elasticity and resistance coefficients then I'll be more than glad to know them !
(in physics, it's 'e' and 'k').
