Title: global.ini
Post by: PiBoSo on October 02, 2014, 02:43:20 pm
There are a few settings that are only available manually editing the global.ini file that is generated in "My Documents"/PiBoSo/MX Bikes/ ( if "compatibility" is set to zero, in the MX Bikes installation folder ).

Under [core] section ( must be created if it doesn't exist ):
mouse_sensitivity = 50
mouse_deadzone = 0.01
mouse_linearity = 1          ; 0 = fully linear. Increase the value to have more precision in the central part
mouse_smooth = 2            ; 0 = no smooth
to set mouse-look parameters.

Under [core] section ( must be created if it doesn't exist ):

replay  = 20

to set the size, in megabytes, of the replay buffer. 20 MB is the default value.
Warning: the bigger the buffer, the more RAM will be used.

Under [core] section ( must be created if it doesn't exist ):

bike_shadow = 512
bike_reflections = 128

to set the power of 2 ( 256, 512, 1024, ... ) resolution of the shadow and reflections textures.
Higher values use more video ram and may have a performance hit.

Under [core] section ( must be created if it doesn't exist ):

texture_quality = 4

to set the quality of loaded textures.

The possible values are:
0 -> uncompressed, OpenGL default
1 -> uncompressed, 32 bits
2 -> uncompressed, 16 bits
3 -> compressed, OpenGL driver
4 -> compressed ( the default value )

1 gives the better quality and much faster loading times, at the expense of video ram usage and a performance hit.

To change the joystick free look parameters:

freelook_joystick_name = EDTracker EDTracker2
freelook_joystick_center = 0
freelook_joystick_range = 32767


These values ( that are the default ones ) set the range from -32767 to 32767.
For a different range, for example from 0 to 255, use:

freelook_joystick_center = 127
freelook_joystick_range = 127

It is possible to change the additional directory where mods can be installed:
[mods]
folder= d:\mxb\mods

If "folder" is empty then the directory "My Documents"\PiBoSo\MX Bikes\mods\ is used.
Removing the two lines forces MX Bikes to search mods only inside the installation folder.
