Essential improvements[edit]

Skip intro videos[edit]

.bik removal[citation needed]
  1. Go to <path-to-game>\UDKGame\Movies\
  2. Remove/rename/move these files:

Adding binoculars[edit]

This tweak will add switchable two staged zoom simulating binoculars behavior from other games.
Binoculars tweak[citation needed]
  1. Go to <path-to-game>\UDKGame\Config\
  2. Open EDKELPlayerInput.ini. Start the game first, if file is not present.
  3. Search for section [Engine.PlayerInput] and add this lines in it:
Bindings=(Name="ZoomIn1",Command="FOV 50 | setbind YYY ZoomIn2",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False)
Bindings=(Name="ZoomIn2",Command="FOV 30 | setbind YYY ZoomOut",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False)
Bindings=(Name="ZoomOut",Command="FOV XXX | setbind YYY ZoomIn1",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False)


XXX is your desired FOV (90 is game default), and YYY is name of key which will trigger zoom. Look out for examples in EDKELPlayerInput.ini. Alternatively you can set your custom magnification by changing values 50 and 30.

Widescreen resolution[edit]

The game does not automatically detect all available resolutions from operating system.
.bin edit[citation needed]
  1. Launch the game and set any resolution. Remember, what you have set.
  2. Go to <path-to-game>\Binaries\Win32\
  3. Open EL_Options.bin in text editor.
  4. Locate resolution, you've just set, and change it to your desired resolution.

Field of view (FOV)[edit]

.ini edit[citation needed]
  1. Go to <path-to-game>\UDKGame\Config\
  2. Open EDKELPlayerInput.ini. Start the game first, if file is not present.
  3. Add these lines into [Eleusis2.ELPlayerInput] section:
Bindings=(Name="NumPadZero",Command="FOV 0",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False,bIgnoreCtrl=False,bIgnoreShift=False,bIgnoreAlt=False)
Bindings=(Name="NumPadOne",Command="FOV 32",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False,bIgnoreCtrl=False,bIgnoreShift=False,bIgnoreAlt=False)
Bindings=(Name="NumPadTwo",Command="FOV 75",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False,bIgnoreCtrl=False,bIgnoreShift=False,bIgnoreAlt=False)
Bindings=(Name="NumPadThree",Command="FOV 80",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False,bIgnoreCtrl=False,bIgnoreShift=False,bIgnoreAlt=False)
Bindings=(Name="NumPadFour",Command="FOV 85",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False,bIgnoreCtrl=False,bIgnoreShift=False,bIgnoreAlt=False)
Bindings=(Name="NumPadFive",Command="FOV 90",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False,bIgnoreCtrl=False,bIgnoreShift=False,bIgnoreAlt=False)
Bindings=(Name="NumPadSix",Command="FOV 95",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False,bIgnoreCtrl=False,bIgnoreShift=False,bIgnoreAlt=False)
Bindings=(Name="NumPadSeven",Command="FOV 100",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False,bIgnoreCtrl=False,bIgnoreShift=False,bIgnoreAlt=False)
Bindings=(Name="NumPadEight",Command="FOV 105",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False,bIgnoreCtrl=False,bIgnoreShift=False,bIgnoreAlt=False)
Bindings=(Name="NumPadNine",Command="FOV 110",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False,bIgnoreCtrl=False,bIgnoreShift=False,bIgnoreAlt=False)


Binds your numpad keys to different FOV values with 0 key resets FOV to default and 1 key triggers zoom.
You can bind your favorite FOV on F-keys simply by replacing "NupadPadXXXX" with "Fx".
When custom FoV is set, cutscenes will be showed in that FoV. Press Num 0 to reset FoV to default.
Best and most flexible way to change FOV on the fly in-game.

High frame rate[edit]

Change frame rate smoothing[citation needed]
  1. Go to <path-to-game>\UDKGame\Config\
  2. Edit UDKEngine.ini.
  3. Change bSmoothFrameRate to FALSE or raise MaxSmoothedFrameRate value.
  4. Save the file.
