Game data[edit]

Configuration file(s) location[edit]

System Location
Windows <path-to-game>/SetupTool.ini

Save game data location[edit]

System Location
Windows <path-to-game>/savedata.dat

Video settings[edit]

Widescreen resolution[edit]

SetupTool.ini[2]
  1. Go to the installation folder.
  2. Edit SetupTool.ini.
  3. Edit SizeX and SizeY lines to set your desired resolution.
  4. Set Type=0 to set the game to widescreen mode.

Input settings[edit]

Remapping[edit]

Gamepad and keyboard configuration settings can be found in SetupTool.ini. The mouse cannot be used in-game.
For Xbox 360 controllers / Wireless controllers for Windows, it is possible to use the triggers to ready the knife or weapon instead of LB (no. 5) and RB (no. 6).
Xbox controller trigger remapping[citation needed]
  1. Open SetupTool.ini.
  2. Using the first table below, locate and modify the lines to link the Z-axis (az+ for LT, az- for RT) to where ReadyKnife and ReadyWeapon appear in the .ini.
  3. Do the same for the ReadyKnife and ReadyWeapon variables in the second table.
These functions can allocate only a digital button.
Action=1
Run=2
Map=8
ReadyKnife=az+
ReadyWeapon=az-
Do the same for this section only for ReadyKnife and ReadyWeapon variables too; nothing else. "Foward" is not a typo. Ensure the original file contains this spelling mistake.
===== Used by SetupTool =====

[PAD0]

PadName=Microsoft:XBOX 360 For Windows (Controller)
Foward=ay-
Back=ay+
LeftTurn=ax-
RightTurn=ax+
CameraUp=ry-
CameraDown=ry+
CameraLeft=rx-
CameraRight=rx+
Action=3
Run=1
Map=8
ReadyKnife=az+
ReadyWeapon=az-
The new remappings must be modified manually since SetupTool.exe will show [ NONE ] for the trigger remapping, and left LB (5) and RB (6) available to whatever action function the player desires.
If you want to use LB & RB, assign their numbers to an only action manually in the .ini file, not using SetupTool.exe.
