Raw Notes for Independence War 2 – Tweaks
The following is a raw dump of notes I made while trying to figure out the optimal settings for the fantastic classic space sim, Independence War 2. Again, this is quite raw and I may come back later to finalize it.
iw2 config hacks (if any) Joystick Deadzones - in flux.ini: - [fcInputDeviceDI] - dead_zone_x = 0.175 - dead_zone_y = 0.175 - dead_zone_z = 0.175 - dead_zone_rx = 0.175 - dead_zone_ry = 0.175 - dead_zone_rz = 0.175 - setting them to 0.1 works pretty well. Set password for multiplayer in flux.ini: - [FcServer] - password = "1234" - [FCClient] - password = "1234" - passwords must match, even for the host. Set resolution and set windowed in flux.ini: - [fcGraphicsDeviceD3D] - windowed mode can be dynamically resized to any resolution! from the elite mod, edit flux.ini for more difficulty: - [icPlayerPilot] - max_rem_range changed from 50000 -> 100000 - (increases the detection range for your ship? remote control range?) - [icShip] - critical_damage_scale changed from 0.2 -> 0.5 - criticals_per_impact changed from 0.2 -> 0.5 - (increases your ship damage... and the chances of ship damage? hard to say.) - [icTacticalCamera] - field_of_view changed from 1.2 -> 1.75 - (fov is increased in the tac cam) - [iiSim] - collision_damage_factor changed from 3.5 -> 4 - (damage from collisions increased)
