Config.dat

From X-Moto

Català - Español

config.dat is the file which holds all configuration options for Xmoto. On Windows you'll find the file in the game installation directory and on Unix-like systems you'll find it in the ~/.xmoto directory.

It's a simple XML file with a <var> element for each configuration option:

<var name="..." value="..."/>

Many of the options are accessible from inside the game, but some of the more obscure ones need to be editited directly in the config.dat file. Below is a table of all current configuration variables.
