Version 1.7 will support a preference file. You can use this to create custom settings for Beat Hazard.
You need to create a text file called BeatHazardPref.txt
(Note: Be careful you don't end up with a file called BeatHazardPref.txt.txt, this might happen if windows is set to hide file extensions - If in doubt, right click on it and look at the properties)
The file needs to be in your 'AppData\Beat Hazard' folder. The position of this folder is different depending on which version of windows you're using.
For Linux it's here: /home/[YOUR NAME]/.local/share/BeatHazard_Linux2/
For Windows 7 it's here: C:\Users\[UserName]\AppData\Roaming\Beat Hazard
XP path to the folder: C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application data\Beat Hazard
For Vista C:\Users\[Username]\AppData\Roaming\Beat Hazard
To find the correct folder, search for BeatHazardRez.sav on your computer. Put the file there.
Edit: If you can find the folder, you might need to turn off the 'hide system folders' option.
Example File: ============= CustomRez 0 800 600; NoRSS; ConstVolume; end;
(note you need a ';' at the end of each line)
Commands Explained: =================== CustomRez [Windowed] [width] [height]; This allows you to set any rez. Windowed (1=window, 0=fullscreen). Then an integer for width and height.
NoRSS; This turns off the News Feed display at the bottom of the screen.
ConstVolume; This makes the volume of the music constant. This will not affect gameplay in anyway. (E.g. the Vol pickups still alter the visual feedback etc.)
oldMouseMode; For player having issues with mouse movement
noWarningSound; Disables boss warning siren
ThanksButNoThanks; Removes 'Thanks for buying' quit screen
ResetMyRankToZero_NoReally; *WARNING* This will reset your rank to zero on load up. You need to play a track so the game saves and this becomes permanent. You will also need to remove the command once you've done this otherwise your rank will be reset every time you load the game. This will not reset your leaderboard score or any other stats.
ResetMySongSaves_NoReally; *WARNING* This will reset all the scores on your songs. You need to play a track so the game saves and this becomes permanent. You will also need to remove the command once you've done this otherwise your scores will be reset every time you load the game. This will not reset your leaderboard scores or any other stats.
AltMouseAiming; This will cause the game to use an alternative mouse aiming system. The mouse is used to rotate the ship and the cross hair stays at a fixed distance from the ship.
AltMouseAimingSensitivity 1.0; This will alter how sensitive the alt mouse aiming is. Use any floating point number. e.g. 1.0 = no change, 2.0 = twice as sensitive, 0.5 = half as sensitive.
NewSaveGame; *WARNING* This will create a new save game. It will overwrite your previous save and all progress will be lost. You will also need to remove the command once you've done this otherwise your game will be reset every time you load.
PhotonCol 1.0 0.0 0.0; This command will change the RGB values for the photon colour. Enter any number between 0.0 and 1.0 for each RGB value.
Vanilla; Play without the DLC enabled.
WriteDebug; Write a file called DebugMsg.txt to the folder
end; End of file
------------ I'll add more commands in future versions if needed. I'll keep this first page up to date too. Note, this is pretty crappy parser, so comments aren't supported. You will need to delete the commands you don't want.
