Essential improvements


The latest retail patch is Patch 1.7b, which fixes various issues and adds new co-op quests. Digital distribution versions already include this patch.

Two Worlds Control Panel

Two Worlds Control Panel can be used to make various tweaks and improvements, including enabling high-detail shadows and XInput controller support (see Controller support). It can also install/uninstall mods using its integrated mod manager.

Skip intro videos

Toggle intro videos with Two Worlds Control Panel (recommended)[citation needed]
  1. Install and run Two Worlds Control Panel.
  2. Go to Tweaks, then click Disable Intros.
Toggle intro videos in the registry[citation needed]
  1. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Reality Pump\TwoWorlds\Interface
  2. Change ShowIntro from 1 to 0.

Multiple character profiles

Re-enable support for multiple character profiles (Windows Vista and later)[2]

When Two Worlds is installed on Windows Vista and later a registry setting is set that prevents it from showing the window for separate character profiles. Fixing this setting re-enables this window, allowing you to keep saves for multiple characters conveniently separated.

  1. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Reality Pump\TwoWorlds\FileSystem
  2. Open EnableGamesForWindows
  3. Change the value from 1 to 0
  4. Click OK.
  5. Move your existing saves (if any) to the new location; see save game data location.
