PIE Graphics Settings
Hey. Is there a way to change the default graphical settings in play-in-editor mode? I run Chiv on medium to play it but want to make sure the map looks good on the highest quality without opening Chiv and changing the settings manually.

I’m sure there is a way to set it somewhere for the SDK itself, but I’m just switching out copies of my “Config” folder inside:
/My Documents/my games/Chivalry Medieval Warfare/
If you’re not as lazy as I am, you could also create a batch file, which does that for you I guess.
Maybe you could use -configsubdir ? So either set up a config subdir for the game, or for PIE.
To set up a configsubdir for the game, copy all the configs from
%USERPROFILE%/Documents/My Games/Chivalry Medieval Warfare/UDKGame/Config
%USERPROFILE%/Documents/My Games/Chivalry Medieval Warfare/UDKGame/Config/Game
Right click on the game in the Steam library, click Set Launch Options, and add
Now, when you start the game normally it’ll use UDKGame/Config/Game, but when you start the editor (without -configsubdir) it’ll use UDKGame/Config
Thanks. I couldn’t get -configsubdir to work properly. It kept giving me a “Failed to find default engine .ini file to retrieve My Documents subdirectory to use. Force quitting.” message. But swapping out config folders isn’t too much of a hassle.
Oh I guess I didn’t hit post on my earlier reply. Thanks both of you. I tried -configsubdir but an error kept popping up that I couldn’t resolve so I’m just swapping out config folders which isn’t too difficult.
