Subject: Defining Player Input

Post Posted: 30 May 2015, 07:38

This is an edit of my previous question on how is player input defined for Unreal/Unreal Tournament and where it was read from, so I could find out how specific functions are called via player input. I am being very armchair when I write this update to this post, but this is what I have found in my time searching around for information on this subject. So config values are written/read to Ini files, where controls are stored. I was originally trying to find out what the following functions are and how they interact according to the player's input:

aMouseX
aMouseY
aBaseX
aBaseY
aTurn
aLookUp
aForward

After looking in System's .ini files, I think I've answered that question. I do have another question though: could I in theory make my own .ini file? Below is the Default User .ini file and a custom one that I have modified, again am I able to use that for a total conversion mod? Would I use var Config (whatever) to assign that value to whatever I am trying to use? How does that work?

Code: Select all

Here are the default file locations of where to find where controls are defined, as well as the information stored in DefUser.ini.  DO NOT MODIFY DefUser.ini!
C:\...\UnrealGold\System\DefUser.ini //
C:\...\UnrealGold\System\User.ini
