Field of view (FOV)[edit]

Add FOV hotkey[1]
  1. Open %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Daylight\Config\WindowsNoEditor\Input.ini
  2. Go to the [/Script/Engine.PlayerInput] section.
  3. Add the line ExecBindings=(Key=F10,Command="FOV 90",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False) (replace 90 with the FOV you want).
  4. Press F10 during gameplay to apply the FOV change.

Input settings[edit]

Remapping[edit]

Keys must be rebound manually in the .ini files[2]
  1. Rebind your keys in %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Daylight\Config\WindowsNoEditor\Input.ini.
  2. If you plan to use the left and right arrows for strafing, you need to delete their bindings from the "Turn" command.
  • Curiously, in-game tutorial button prompts will correctly display the rebound keys, even though the game doesn't allow key rebinding as a default feature.

  5. Paste LimaLoc.archive and LimaLoc.locres here, replacing existing files when prompted.

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 When running this game without Administrator elevation, activity in %PROGRAMFILES%, %PROGRAMFILES(X86)%, and %WINDIR% might be redirected to %LOCALAPPDATA%\VirtualStore\ (more details).
  2. 2.0 2.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/230840/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (230840) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
