NAME

       default.cfg - Chocolate Doom configuration file

DESCRIPTION

       default.cfg  is  the  configuration  file  for  chocolate-doom(6).  The
       configuration options stored in the file are the same as  those  stored
       in  the  original  DOS  Vanilla  Doom.   Extra  Chocolate Doom-specific
       options  are  stored  in  a  separate  configuration  file,  chocolate-
       doom.cfg.

       default.cfg  is  normally  stored  in  the  user’s  home  directory, in
       ~/.chocolate-doom/default.cfg.

       The chocolate-setup(6) tool provides a  simple  to  use  front-end  for
       editing default.cfg.

FILE FORMAT

       The  file  is  a plain-text file, consisting of a list of configuration
       options and their values, separated  by  whitespace.   Each  option  is
       stored on a separate line.  Options have different types; an option may
       have either an integer, floating point or string value.  If the  option
       is of a string type, the value is surrounded by quotes (").

       For example:

              integer_value                1
              integer_value2               1
              floating_point_value         4.2
              string_value                 "hello world"

       Invalid  lines  or  comments  in  the  file  will be ignored, but it is
       advisable not to put them in the  file;  the  file  is  rewritten  from
       scratch  every  time  the  game exits, so any invalid lines or comments
       will be lost.

       Some options are used for keyboard key bindings; these  are  stored  as
       integer values containing the keyboard scan code of the key to be bound
       to.  Boolean values are also stored as integers, with a value  of  zero
       usually indicating "false" and a non-zero value indicating "true".

CONFIGURATION VARIABLES

       mouse_sensitivity
              Mouse  sensitivity.   This value is used to multiply input mouse
              movement to control the effect of moving the mouse. The "normal"
              maximum  value  available  for  this through the in-game options
              menu is 9. A value of 31 or greater will cause the game to crash
