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/ ( or, 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.
Please note that values from 0 to 2 are NOT recommended for multiplayer.

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

By default, a "mods" folder is automatically created in "My Documents"\PiBoSo\MX Bikes\
It is strongly recommended to install mods into this directory, instead of the MX Bikes installation folder.

It is possible to change the mods location adding the following lines:
[mods]
folder= d:\mxb\mods

If "folder" is empty then the directory "My Documents"\PiBoSo\MX Bikes\mods\ is used.
