Trek Voyager tweak guide
McGuire on October 23, 2000 - Page 2/11
tweaks here can be either changed in your Hmconfig.cfg
(Holo-match - Multiplayer settings), Efconfig.cfg (Elite Force – Single player settings) or you may
make your own custom Config file for the game. If you 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 autoexec.cfg. Save it in the BaseEF
directory of where Elite Force is installed.
load your customconfig.cfg in Elite Force (If
you didn’t name it autoexec.cfg), bring down the
console & type /exec
customconfig.cfg & hit the Enter key.
– If you choose to make the settings in your own custom
config file then you can omit the seta (space) from
each setting. In the Hmconfig & Efconfig.cfg
there will need to be a seta followed by a space. E.g.
In your Efconfig.cfg a setting would appear as follows,
while in your own autoexec.cfg it would appear simply as r_texturemode
If you wish to use command toggles, e.g. instead of holding down a key to
run you may bind a key to it, pressing the key once to enable
running, pressing it again to walk. To use this toggling you
must bind a key as follows.
bind key "setting !", e.g. in the example above you might use bind b
"cl_run !". This method can be used with most
settings. The ! is what sets the toggle.
the game, select Configure,
then Video Data.
Video options. You can use this to
select Pre-configured visual settings, e.g. Fastest. Don’t bother; use Custom settings instead so you can set
what you want.
GL Driver. This setting allows you to
select the OpenGL driver that you are using for rendering. If
you own a 3dfx Voodoo 2 or earlier select Voodoo as your GL driver, otherwise select Default.
GL Extensions. Set this to On for improve performance.
Setting it to Off should definitely be seen as a last
resort to try if you can’t get the game to run.
Performance will be significantly lower when set to Off
Video Mode. Select a lower resolution (800*600 or 640*480) when
playing online. Graphics may be slightly less appealing, but
it will run better, which is more important.
Color Depth. Set this to 16bit
when playing online to improve performance. In single player
you can set it to 32-bit for improved visual quality (only if
your card supports 32 bit colour).
Fullscreen. Set this to On.
If you’re using 3d hardware then you’ll want to run
full-screen anyway, not windowed.
Options available are High, Medium & Low.
Each setting gives progressively less geometry detail in maps,
resulting in better performance, but less curved architecture.
Set it to High for best visual quality & Low
for best performance.
Texture Detail. Options available are Very high, High, Medium
& Low. The higher the setting the sharper textures
in the game will appear, although performance will be lower.
The lower the setting the more blurred textures will appear in
the game, although performance will be improved.
