Config Item Purposes

Revision as of 13:52, 21 October 2005 by Dlh (talk | contribs) (nSettingItem)

Choose the right kind of setting item:

nSettingItem

Transferred over the network from the server.

Examples

  • cycle_rubber
  • cycle_delay

tSettingItem

Local settings that are loaded from settings.cfg. You may change these setting in-game, but they are not saved when you quit. To make the changes permanent you must edit your configuration files.

Examples

  • camera_custom_back
  • camera_custom_pitch

tConfItem

Local settings. These are saved when quitting and include things like video card options, resolution settings, player names, instant chats, and the like.

Variants

The XItemLine variant is a specialization of the XItem< tString > class with the difference that it saves and reads whole lines of config files, while the standard item will only read the first word.
