Predator Hunting Grounds: Game Configuration

Simple guide explaining all kinds of stuff related to the configuration of the game. (Config File Editing is not possible!)

 

Disclaimer

It is not possible to change the games settings via the config files. The config files are just a dump of the current settings, which the game is loading from a save file on startup.

The save file is a binary and therefore you can not easily modify settings. You have to change the settings in-game or build an save game editor

%localappdata%\SpaceFish\Saved\SaveGames\Steam

I do not take responsibility for anything.
If you get headache, break your game installation, or destroy your computer it’s not my fault and also not my problem 😛
Use contents of this guide at own risk.

Removing splash screen (Sony Interactive Entertainment presents…)

To speed up the start of the game a little bit, you can disable the intro. Just rename or delete the FrontEnd_Splash.mp4 which is located in the games installation directory

For example, in my case the file is located at:

K:\GameLibrarys\steamapps\common\Predator Hunting Grounds\SpaceFish\Content\Movies

 

and instead of deleting it i renamed it to FrontEnd_Splash2.mp4.

It might be that the file gets re-downloaded during an update and for sure when you verify game files. To work around this, you could simply make the movies folder read only after renaming / deleting the file.

To make the folderread only do the following

  • Right click on the folder
  • Select properties
  • Mark the check box called “Read-only”

It might be that the check box already seems active by showing a black box, in that case simply click it twice.

Making the folder read only could cause problems in the future
(For example there will be added a new intro screen or some other clip – steam would not be able to update the folders contents.)

Config File Location

Open windows explorer (Windows-Key + E) and type the following into the address bar:

%localappdata%\SpaceFish\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor

 

GameUserSettings.ini

This file contains the user-specific settings. It might be empty on first start so you might have to change some settings in-game to get it populated. Below i post the output of my current config file.
