Indent Width

And since all my other projects use 4 spaces and I am not willing to reconfigure my editor each time I move back and forth between OpenMW and another project, I have to adjust indenting manually. That is annoying and error-prone.
Actually I don't know of any other modern cpp project, that uses only 2 spaces. That is really uncommon these days.

Code: Select all

    { // four spaces
        code; // four more spaces
I tried all I could to fix this (back in the day). But after a while I just got used to it. If you (and others) start using 4 then maybe I'll make another stab at wrestling with the emacs config system again :)
