Vessel Config options / Keyboard config

The Options menu in the GUI lets you configure some of the games settings.

You can also open "VesselConfig.ini" and adjust these settings and other options manually.

"VesselConfig.ini" is located at:
// XP users: C:\Documents and Settings\$USER$\Application Data\Vessel
// Win7/Vista users: \Users\$USER$\AppData\Roaming\Vessel
// where "$USER$" is the currently logged in user

open the file in notepad. you'll see something like

[Settings]
Resolution=0
VSync=1
FullScreen=1
Gamma=7
SoundVolume=8
MusicVolume=10
CheatCode=
ObjectLimiter=1

-------------------------
Adjusting the Resolution:
Resolution=0
Resolution=0 will always be the default resolution setting you have enabled. other indexes, 1 to X, will be dependent on your video card. It's best to set this in the Options menu since you will see the actual resolution being set.

Vsync
VSync=1
0 or 1. This option is will disable the vertical sync when in full screen mode. Setting this to 0 may help improve perform but will result in screen tearing. It's recommended that you keep this at 1.

Fullscreen
FullScreen=1
0 or 1. The game defaults to fullscreen but if you want it to be in windowed mode, set this to 0.

Gamma
Gamma=7
1 - 10. This changes the brightness of the game. 1 will make the game very dark. 10 will make it very bright.

Sound and Music Volume
SoundVolume=8
MusicVolume=10

0 - 10. This adjusts the Sound Effects and Music of the game. 0 will mute it, 10 is max volume.

Cheat Code
CheatCode=
This does nothing....really.

Object Limiter
ObjectLimiter=1
To help improve performance on the CPU we have an option enabled which removes unneeded Fluros and excessive water from the game. If you want unlimited fluid on screen set this to 0. This will cause the game to slow down when large amounts of fluid are in use.

Forced Pixel Resolution
ForcePixelResolutionX=1280
ForcePixelResolutionY=720

I would only add these lines if you have a good reason to force a certain resolution. Doing so will remove the Options in the GUI to go to windowed mode or change the resolution. Numbers are in pixels.

Supersampling
SuperSample=4x
inputs are 1x 2x 4x 8x 16x
1x is off; default 16x is max
a form of anti-aliasing to reduce harshness of edges. It is recommended to keep this disabled and just set the highest resolution.

If enabled, you should use this with the ForcePixelResolutionX/Y as above. Increasing supersampling to a higher x# will use more video memory. If the game will not start or appear black you will need to lower this number or lower the resolution.

This info should also be in the ini itself,

i have added it myself as

Code:

Language=0
This value corresponds with one of the language dictionaries contained within the game. Should only be changed in game.

Note that in the latest version, you can also change the keyboard config in this file.

That is not entirely true, although you can change the keybindings, IT IS NOT IN THE SAME DIRECTORY NOR FILE! To change the keybindings you have to go to your game folder in steamapps: Steam\steamapps\common\vessel

In this map there will be a file called "VesselKeys" where you can change the keybindings. The file will look something like this:
Quote:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
--This file allows you to override the keys used to play Vessel. Set 'OverrideDefaultKeys'
--to 1, or else all settings will be ignored.

--
--For each entry, you can enter
--1: The letter or number you want for that control
--2: One of the following strings:
-- Left
-- Right
-- Up
-- Down
-- Shift
-- Control
-- Enter
-- Tab
-- Space
-- Alt
-- Escape
--3: The hex value of the virtual key code, which can be found here:
--http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/dd375731(v=vs.85).aspx
--For example: 'Jump=0x09' will bind the Tab key to jump.
--
--Also, 'IgnoreGamepad' can be set to 1, which will force gamepads not to be recognized
--or used in the game.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[Keys]
IgnoreGamepad=0
OverrideDefaultKeys=1
MoveLeft=q
MoveRight=d
MoveUp=z
MoveDown=s
Pause=Escape
GuiStart=Enter
GuiAccept=Enter
GuiCancel=Escape
Jump=Space
ForceWalk=Shift
Grab=e
BackpackPressure=Control
BackpackSuction=Alt
DeploySeed=a
FluroMenu=w
CycleNozzleForward=Tab
CycleNozzleBackward=
CycleCanisterForward=
CycleCanisterBackward=
Journal=j
GuiLeft=Left
GuiRight=Right
GuiUp=Up
GuiDown=Down
I have made the most important text bold. As you can already see, I changed the movement keys (q instead of a etc.). I made this post since the post above me was confusing.

Part of the credit goes to SteelCougar307 for this post: http://forums.steampowered.com/forum...84&postcount=3

Also for future games might I suggest a QWERTY/AZERTY option so people with AZERTY keyboards (rare as they may be in the world) can easily switch instead of having to go through the trouble of rebinding maybe 3-4 keys.

gamepad

Is there a way to edit the gamepad controls? I would like to use change the movement to the d-pad rather than the analogue stick.
