WildStar/cvar In WildStar configuration options can be accessed through 'console variables' or 'CVars', sometimes referred to as 'config variables'. These variables affect many aspects of the game, including the graphics engine, sound system, and user interface. CVars in WildStar are object oriented or 'scoped', similar to setting a values in a Lua or JS table. Historically, the term CVar was meant to differentiate the console variables from the commands. Console variable names are not case sensitive.

Accessing configuration variables
  • .ini files - like user.ini in the user 'WildStar' folder, used for game settings: 'draw.shadows=false'.
  • /eval command - chat slash command to run Lua that will set a config value: '/eval Apollo.SetConsoleVariable("draw.shadows", false)'.
  • UI Esc menu - WildStar's in-game configuration interface. Hit Esc to get to it.
  • In AddOns - using Lua functions from an AddOn directly, similar to using '/eval'.
Syntax for setting variables
variableName=string
variableName=0
variableName=0.0
variableName=true
Warning: changing CVars directly can cause issues. In some cases you may have to quit the game, and manually remove from the .ini file. These changes are generally the same as using the 'Esc menu' UI, and will be saved.

Reference[edit | edit source]

This is a categorized list of config variables, along with a short explanation for each CVar. The list is not necessarily complete; for a complete list, see Config variables/Complete list or Category:WildStar CVars/Removed.

Note: currently if 'Default is xxx' ends with a period '.', then is real default as if value not set. Otherwise is just value when documented or an example. If default is confirmed, please replace the value and add the period at the end.
