VDrift.config is the main settings file for VDrift. It usually stays in the user's home directory or user settings space, and is in the configfile format. It is not the only file VDrift uses (see also options.config, controls, and others). VDrift does not use any kind of registry or configuration database. The options available to this configuration file are the ones defined in options.config.

Location

Linux

On Linux VDrift.config is stored in a subdirectory of the user's home directory named .vdrift. If the name of the user running VDrift is username then the file will be located at /home/username/.vdrift/VDrift.confg.

Note: If VDrift is run as root, the root user's home directory is used instead, which is usually /root. It is not recommended that VDrift is run as root.
