Output sub-tab changes:

• Start Frame: 0
• End Frame: 100
• Viewport Update: 1

• Time Scale: 0.85 (animated from frame 0 to frame 20)

System sim sub-tab parameters:

• Gravity: 0.5 (animated from frame 0 to frame 20)
• Vorticity: 1.0
• X Turbulence: 0.05 (animated from frame 0 to frame 20)

Turbulence Noise:

• Scale: 1.0

There's a problem with the files you provided, it seems that the 2010 file is actually a 2013; max2010 tells me "file save version 15000" :(
