Settings.cfg

From Lightspeed Frontier Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

All major game settings are stored in a file named 'settings.cfg' located in the game installation directory. This page hopes to provide a comprehensive list of commands and their usage.

Most can be adjusted via the in-game settings menu, others have to be set manually. A blank file with only the needed commands can be accepted as well, the rest will be set to internal defaults and written when the game loads.

The file is by default located in the path C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Lightspeed Frontier\settings.cfg on Windows.
