Okay, so a quick update.
Not knowing the details in the updated code, anything is possible.
Make sure the server is stopped for at least 5m.
Then go ahead and change the settings, save.
That will take care of all the possibilities for that layer.
This worked as far as I can tell, however in addition, I removed the ini settings for TCs Auto Rewards v1.11.1. I am not sure whether or not those were interferring, so I did it too. I will add it back at a later date and update you once again. Thank you for all your help!
