want to make you own config file then simply create a New
Text Document, enter in the settings & save the file
as All files & name it customconfig.cfg
(Enter in whatever you wish for customconfig, the
important part is the .cfg).
load your customconfig.cfg in FAKK2, bring down the
console & type /exec customconfig.cfg & hit the Enter key.

custom config file then you can omit the seta (space)
from each setting. In the config there will need to be
a seta followed by a space. E.g. In your config.cfg
a setting would appear as follows, seta r_texturemode
while in your own customconfig.cfg
it would appear simply as r_texturemode
