Configuration file

The data discussed in this section is found in config.txt at the configuration file location noted above.

FIT_TO_SCREEN 0 indicates pixel-perfect, 1 indicates aspect-ratio stretch, 2 indicates full stretch.
FULLSCREEN 0 indicates windowed, 1 indicates fullscreen.
SCREEN_X Window width. Note that Linux/Mac ignore this in fullscreen mode!
SCREEN_Y Window height. Note that Linux/Mac ignore this in fullscreen mode!
VSYNCH_FLAG VSync. When enabled, Linux will attempt EXT_swap_control_tear VSync first.
SHADER_FLAG 0 indicates no shaders/framebuffers, 1 indicates simple shaders, 2 indicates full shaders.
DRAW_PAPER_TEXTURE Refers to the paper texture used as a background element.
DO_RUMBLE Enables/disables haptic support for rumble-enabled controllers.
SOUND_FLAG Enables/disables all sound (both cutscenes and in-game).
PARALLAX_FLAG 0 indicates simple parallax, 1 indicates advanced parallax.
RESTART_WARNING_FLAG Set to 0 if you want to automatically skip the warning prompt when restarting a level.
SND_MUSIC_VOL Float value between 0.0 and 1.0, indicating 0%-100% volume for music.
SND_SFX_VOL Float value between 0.0 and 1.0, indicating 0%-100% volume for sound effects and cutscenes.
IN_GP_* Joystick axis/button indices for gamepads (as noted by SDL2).
IN_KB_* Integer values for keyboard symbols as noted by SDL_keyboard.h.
JOYSTICK_DEADZONE Integer value that is multiplied by 0.05f, then clamped between 0.1f and 1.0f, indicating 10-100% reach required for joystick axis values to be used.
DEBUG_FLAG Set to 1 for verbose output in errorLog.txt.
WAIT_TIME_DELAY Time in milliseconds to sync the game's timestep. May be helpful for very specific cases of stuttering.
FORCE_30FPS Set to 1 to throttle the timestep to 30 Hz on the CPU. Can be combined with WAIT_TIME_DELAY.
CONTROLLER_INDEX Linux/Mac only. 0-based index for the desired controller. DEBUG_FLAG = 1 will print full controller information to errorLog.txt.
FORCE_SUPERSAMPLE Linux/Mac only. 0 indicates default viewport resolution, >=1 indicates multiplying the default 720p viewport by the given integer. For example, 2 will always render as 2880x1440, even for 1920x1080 (by default it would render as 1280x720, the highest 720p resolution below 1920x1080).
FMOD_DRIVER_ID Linux/Mac only. When booting the game, the full list of FMOD devices will be printed to terminal, including the device's integer ID. Set this variable to that ID and the game will force FMOD to use the correct device. Note that cutscenes use Bink, which uses CoreAudio on OS X and OpenAL on Linux. This variable will not affect the device used by cutscenes.
