'Advanced Settings' are invalid?

Post by silvermistshadow » 26 Jun 2018, 21:38

I'm trying to use some of the advanced settings from the guide and settings-default.cfg in settings.cfg, but the moment the launcher loads, it just adds "# invalid setting:" in front of them.

Code: Select all

[Game]
difficulty = -100
# invalid setting: show owned = 3
# invalid setting: show projectile damage = true
# invalid setting: show melee info = true
# invalid setting: show enchant chance = true
# invalid setting: show effect duration = true

[Input]
always run = true
# invalid setting: toggle sneak = true

according to the guide and the default config file, those should all be just fine, yet for some reason they're apparently invalid when I put them in. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong.

what are you editing your file with? If on mac and using TextEdit, disable the rich text formatting.

I'm on Windows 10, using Notepad++.

EDIT: seems to be fixed after telling Notepad++ to treat it as an INI file and trying again.

FYI, the upcoming OpenMW 0.44 adds a new panel in the Launcher that allows you to set these Advanced Settings via checkboxes and such, so you don't have to worry about choosing invalid options.
