TIP: Be aware that this page is obsolete, it should be updated with all comments in the future time.

The following variables configure different aspects of the game.

Some of them (global settings) are loaded from the config.cfg that can be found in the game user folder; others (which are associated with a player's profile) will be saved in the profile folder (e.g. "<game_user_path>/profiles/<profile_id>").

Most of these can be changed during the game play using the console. To do so, enter the variable name, followed by the desired value, to change it, and press Enter. Additionally the command uset can be used before the cvar name, but it is not necessary.

To determine the current and default value of a variable, enter only its name.


g_police 0     (disables traffic fines)
g_colbox 1     (displays collision boxes)

r_mirror_view_distance  (might return the following)
"r_mirror_view_distance" is: "400" default:"80.0"
