View Full Version : Customizing controls cfg file?

8th Jan 2002, 02:55 AM

I've played the Quake games for a long time, and just recently got Unreal Tournament.

My question is can I use an autoexec.cfg file like I do in the Quake games? Or is it a different format?

If anyone can let me know how it works in UT, or if theres a webpage or FAQ explaining the bind calls, alias's ect. I would greatly appreciate it. Because I am currently lost on this issue.

Welcome to BuF.:)

Hmm, Autoexec.cfg? U mean U want to have diff setups; movement keys/binds and so on?
Or do U just want to edit the default one?

Yes, I want to have a seperate file with all my presets, bindings, ect. that the game does not alter (If this is possible in UT)

In quake this is done with the autoexec.cfg file, the default file quake set's up is config.cfg.

But I know Quake binds will not work in UT (so I need to know them), and I also can't seem to find the default UT settings file. How do I customize? Are there any sites on this?

Hey DashK ! Welcome to the forums.
All your binds and personal settings is stored in user.ini
This file can be found in your unrealtournament\system-folder.
You can edit this file or make your binds aliases in the advanced console. Open your console and type preferences to open it.

There are some sites you can visit to learn more about how to make this binds and aliases:

With unreal you dont use a cfg file you use an ini file. You dont need an autoexec.cfg or anything, the two files you want to know about are....

unrealtournament.ini <-- edits all the engine options, such as res, min fps, all the non-player settings

user.ini <--- this is what you want, *all* the player settings are set in this ini file. You wont mess up any UT engine settings with this ini. Much easier to edit the ini file than it is to edit the cfg file in Quake.
