Changing settings

From the Launcher

The settings are arranged by subject, on different tabs:

Game tab | Graphics tab | Control tab | Keymaps tab | Audio tab | Volume tab | Midi tab | MT-32 tab | Paths tab | GUI tab | Misc tab | Cloud tab | LAN tab | Accessibility tab

To change a setting globally, so that it affects all games, select the Global Options button to open the menu, and then select the tab containing the setting you would like to change.

To change a setting for just one game, highlight the game in the games list, then select the Game Options button and select the tab containing the setting you would like to change. If the Launcher is in grid view, select the game and then select the gear icon in the pop-up window. To make the game use the settings in the Game Options tab instead of the Global Options tab, tick Override global settings.

Not all settings are available for all games; for example, where there is no MIDI soundtrack for a game, there will be no MIDI or MT-32 tabs.

In the configuration file

See the configuration file page for more information on how to do this. Configuration keys are listed in the Settings pages, after the description of each setting, in italics.

From the command line

Some settings can be specified in the command line (the complete list can be found at command line). These are valid for the duration of the program and don’t get saved to the configuration file unless modified. They are also marked by a special color in the launcher tabs mentioned above.
