  • Implemented: This setting is imported to openmw.cfg and used by OpenMW.
  • Not started: This setting is not yet used by OpenMW.
  • Research needed: This setting is not currently used by OpenMW, because we don't know what the setting does.
  • Moved: This setting is handled in a different configuration file (e.g. settings.cfg). Generally OpenMW tries to separate between "user settings" (in settings.cfg) and "content / game settings" (imported to openmw.cfg, some of which may later be moved to the content files when OpenMW-CS gains the respective editing capability).
  • Removed: This setting will not be imported by OpenMW, because it was broken or not useful.

Note: to search for the use of a setting in OpenMW, search for SectionName_SettingName, with all spaces replaced by underscores. For example, to find

Sun Glare Fader Max

the respective setting in openmw.cfg would be called "Weather_Sun_Glare_Fader_Max".

In some cases there may be abstractions in place to ease the retrieving of settings - e.g. in a GUI layout file, writing


would be replaced with the value of the setting "[FontColor] color_background". See GUI Architecture#Escape_sequences for more of these codes.

Performing research

You can help by performing research on settings marked as "research needed". The easiest way to find out what a setting does is to change the setting to extreme values and then observe for changes in the game.
