Some good .ini tweaks:

All of this is from this post on the gearbox forums:

To disable the startup movies:
-----------------------------
Within WillowEngine.ini:

Find:
[FullScreenMovie]
StartupMovies=2K_logo
StartupMovies=Gearbox_logo
StartupMovies=NVidia
StartupMovies=Loading
SkippableMovies=2K_logo
SkippableMovies=Gearbox_logo
SkippableMovies=Attract
SkippableMovies=NVidia

and comment out lines like so:

[FullScreenMovie]
;StartupMovies=2K_logo
;StartupMovies=Gearbox_logo
;StartupMovies=NVidia
;StartupMovies=Loading
;SkippableMovies=2K_logo
;SkippableMovies=Gearbox_logo
;SkippableMovies=Attract
;SkippableMovies=NVidia


To adjust FOV (Field of View):
-----------------------------
Within WillowInput.ini:
Search for "WillowGame.WillowPlayerInput". Below the chunk of bindings, add the following:

Bindings=(Name="F10",Command="FOV 90",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False)
Bindings=(Name="F11",Command="FOV 110",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False)

You can change the keys (F10 and F11) to whatever you'd like, as well as the FOV values.


To disable/adjust weapon view bob:
----------------------------------
Within WillowGame.ini:
Search for "bWeaponBob" and you should come across the following lines:

bWeaponBob=TRUE
Bob=0.005

They should be pretty self explanatory. I can confirm the Bob numerical adjustment does work.


To enable VSync:
-----------------
Within WillowEngine.ini:
Search for "UseVsync" and you should come across the following line:

UseVsync=False

Change to TRUE.


To disable voice chat:
---------------------
Within WillowEngine.ini:
Search for "bHasVoiceEnabled" and you should come across the following line:

bHasVoiceEnabled=True

Change to FALSE.


To enable console:
------------------
Within WillowInput.ini:
Search for "ConsoleKey" and you should come across the following line:

ConsoleKey=

Add 'Tilde' after the equal sign to enable the console (should look like ConsoleKey=Tilde)


To disable mouse smoothing:
----------------------------
Within WillowInput.ini:
Search for "bEnableMouseSmoothing" and you should come across the following line:

bEnableMouseSmoothing=True

Change to FALSE. Should improve the feel of the mouse when looking around and navigating the UI.


Enable Drop Weapon Key:
-------------------------
Within WillowInput.ini:
Search for "WillowGame.WillowPlayerInput". Within that section, search for "ThrowWeapon". By default, it's bound to "Underscore" - I changed mine to V, so it looks like:

Bindings=(Name="V",Command="ThrowWeapon",Control=F alse,Shift=False,Alt=False)

Ah awesome thanks, I'd already managed to get rid of the logo movies, but removeing those splash screens as well is even better...

Now if only somoene would figure out how the **** to turn on Anti-Aliasing I'd be golden. It's really driving me nuts, I mean I know the UT3 engine isn't designed to cope with AA but every other game that uses it can be forced easily enough but Borderlands just refuses to get rid of the jaggies.

i don't have a WillowEngine.ini :( I downloaded from steam

You do, it's not in the install folder, it is in your My Documents/My Games folder

Anyone else having trouble finding the MouseSmoothing and ConsoleKey= parts? CTRL+F can't find either of them, and yes, I used "Find 'Up' and 'Down'".

Weird how they don't have window mode in options but have it in the configs.

Willowengine.ini

Fullscreen=False

I dont have a page up or page down on my keyboard (yea, Im using a Macbook pro...and running XP on it). So what would I replace the "PAGEUP" key with if I wanted to use the up arrow...would it be "UPARROW" or just "up"?

......now, where was I?

Thank you for the tweaks! I'll try a few in just a little bit.

The console parses commands and adds "say" before anything you type, so it's useless until someone finds a workaround.
