  • hi

    Been renting a server on Nitrado for a short while now.

    I'm trying to changes some settings to make our server a little more play friendly.

    But got a question.

    Can I alter the game.ini and GameUserSettings.ini files in file browser without using expert mode ?

    It seems that some settings change back to their original value.

    And if I enable expert mode, are all the command lines in those 2 ini.files transferred or used or do I have to write the whole thing from scratch ?

    Thanks in advance

  • yeah thanks

    I know, I've read those threads

    I'm using the webUI but wanting to go to expert mode.

    My question was, is everything transferred when i go to expert mode or do I need to write it from scratch ?

  • Its not hours of staring at code, but it does take a little bit of time investment to get it all right. Get a note pad and make notes of your settings in web ui that you want to keep, have another tab open with the wiki to show what the ini lines should read for those settings, go into expert mode and go thru the lines and add or modify the ones you need. Having a deeper understanding of how the game works will make it easier in the future to make changes to affect the gameplay in a way that you want.
