VDrift.config is the main user settings file for VDrift. It is in the configfile format. It is not the only file which VDrift uses for storing user settings (see also configuring the controls); however, it is the one which contains most of the settings important to users. 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 and Defaults
VDrift.config is located inside the user settings directory. The default VDrift.config is located in data/settings/VDrift.config. If VDrift fails to start, the next time it runs, it will move the user's current VDrift.config to VDrift.config.backup and make a new VDrift.config from the default one.
This is an example VDrift.config file.
