Odd. Are you sure hints are disabled for you though?
The settings aren't saved between episodes like with season 2 or ToMI.
I've fiddled around it with FAR longer than I should have, and no stickers (gladly). 303 did give me unwanted hints though...
Sam: "We're 98% certain General Skun-ka'pe is evil."
Stinky: "And the other 2%?"
Max: "That he's crazy and we have to shoot him! But that may be wishful thinking on our part."
(Any resemblance to KOTOR is purely coincidential, really!)
