But now that you've forked out the cash for the latest and greatest in gaming, how can you make sure to get the most out of your fragging experience? To find out, come join Koroush "PersianImmortal" Ghazi as he takes a hard look at not only the in-game settings, but also the secret settings that hide within the game's .ini files. Check out this comprehensive guide for yourself!

Advanced Tweaking

 

While the in-game settings for UT2003 cover most of your customisation needs, this wouldn't be a TweakTown tweak guide if it didn't go a lot further than that. As most people know, games based on the Unreal Engine can be tweaked by editing the game settings in the initialisation (.ini) files. UT2003 follows that tradition by having a lot of tweakability - if you know where to look in the ini file and what each tweak actually does.

 

In this section of the guide we examine the two main .ini files which hold all the major UT2003 settings. These files are UT2003.ini and User.ini. They both sit in the System folder under the main UT2003 directory (typically C:\UT2003\System\). Now before you do anything with these files, firstly make all the changes you want using the in-game settings. The changes you make there will be recorded in both of these files. Next, make a copy of each file, rename them and put them somewhere safe. If you accidentally delete important settings, or forget what the default settings were or otherwise ruin the settings, you can simply copy the old ones back over the changed ones and start again.

 

Note that the default UT2003.ini settings - the settings which ship with UT2003 the first time it's run - are in a file called Default.ini in the same directory as the other two .ini files. I mention this in case you're already having problems with the UT2003.ini file before backing it up or if you just want to know what the absolute default settings are. Don't delete, rename, move or change the Default.ini file at any point.

 

Now, having safely backed up these files, you can open them up using Notepad or any other text editor and begin the tweaking journey. I won't cover any settings which are changed using the in-game settings screens. You should stick to changing them within the game. I'll only cover the tweaks which are accessible through the .ini files, and which can't be changed using the in-game options.

 

 

User.ini

 

[DefaultPlayer]

 

Name=

 

This setting holds your online character's name. Whether you use the in-game settings or enter a name here, you're limited to 16 characters maximum being displayed on a server. The only point of entering/changing it here rather than in-game is that you can paste in special characters here if you so like.

 

[Engine Input]

 

All the key commands assigned under the Controls screen in the in-game settings are recorded here, as well as all the taunts you assign to keys under the Speech screen. You should change most key commands in-game, including the assigning of taunts. However you can assign special key commands in the User.ini file, such as in the example below. To edit a key function, find the key entry you want to change (e.g. the E= line for the "E" key on your keyboard) and insert/edit the code following it to change its function. For example, to assign two weapons to one key, where pressing the same key will switch between the two weapons, use the following command (example shows the command bound to the "E" key):

 

E=pipedswitchweapon 5 | pipedswitchweapon 7

 

This now allows you to switch back and forth between the Link Gun and the Flack Cannon by pressing E. Note the character after the 5 above is the "pipe" symbol, and is usually inserted by pressing the SHIFT key and the \ key.

 

There are other commands you can assign to keys, and a range of taunts. For most of these, you should use the in-game settings menus, but for the sake of completeness, I've included a full list of taunt codes below. Once again, to assign a taunt to a particular key, you'll need to find the key you wish to assign the taunt to and paste the code from the list below in front of the key command (e.g F=speech taunt 22). As you can see from the list below, the same code number may say something different depending on the gender and type of character you have. Here are the taunt codes:
