While Overgrowth does not currently provide a way to adjust settings in game, users may adjust their configuration by modifying their

config.txt file. config.txt is located in the Data folder ((for Mac users) ~/Library/Application Support/Lugaru 2/Data/

Note: if you are using Lion, your library folder is hidden by default... in the finder, click the "Go" menu, then Press Option, and Library will appear in the list

(and for Windows users) My Documents\Wolfire\Overgrowth\Data, NOT Program Files\Wolfire\Overgrowth\Data!). The file is a plain text file that is readable

by any normal text editor (such as TextEdit for Mac or Notepad for Windows).


screenwidth: 800 - the game's horizontal resolution

screenheight: 600 - the game's vertical resolution

controller[drop]: button3

controller[attack]: axis3<-0.5

controller[grab]: axis3>0.5

Alpha 150 added controller options under config.txt, so here is a guide to how you can modify the controller buttons to your liking.

Note: I am using Windows 7, so i don't know the method for Mac or Linux.

What you need to do is click the Start Menu and use the Search Box. Search for set up usb game controllers.

You should now see all installed USB-joysticks in the Installed Game Controllers box. Highlight the one you wish to use and click on Properties.

Navigate to the Test tab. When you press a button on the controller you can see which button was just pressed. You can also test the axes of the directional controls this way.

Lets say you want to use button 4 as the attack button and button 2 as the grab button, all you have to do is change controller[attack]: axis3<-0.5 to controller[attack]: button4 and change controller[grab]: axis3>0.5 to controller[grab]: button2

Same thing goes with the axes. If you want to make Rabbot look left or right you need to change controller[lookx] and if you change controller[looky] he will look up and down along the axis of your choice.
