Please back up your INI files before trying these, there have been reports of lost key bindings after doing so.

UPDATE: Obli's awesome Borderlands PC Configuration Editor does the majority of the following tweaks for you within small app. Follow the link to learn more:

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

Find:
Quote:


[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:
Quote:


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

If that doesn't work, replace the // with ; or #



Disable story intro, bus credits sequence, and "guardian angel" intro videos (courtesy of Rehevkor):

When you create a new character, you'll go directly to the character selection part. After you choose a character, you'll go directly to meeting claptrap. This makes rolling a new character much quicker.



To disable ALL movies:
----------------------
This can be done in order to skip the prologue when starting a new game. However, this is a drastic measure since it apparently kills all movies! Cutscenes, loading screens, etc. Don't say I didn't warn you!

Within your shortcut for Borderlands, right-click -> properties. Within the shortcut line, add this parameter AFTER the link to your Borderlands exe file:
Quote:


-nomoviestartup

E.G:
Quote:


C:\Program Files\Borderlands\binaries\Borderlands.exe -nomoviestartup



To adjust FOV (Field of View):
-----------------------------
Within WillowInput.ini:

Search for [WillowGame.WillowPlayerInput]. Below the chunk of bindings, add the following:
Quote:


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.

TIP: It's being reported that the FOV gets reset whenever you sprint in an online game. As a workaround, you can add the FOV command to one of your movement keys, like I have. Example - my MoveForward binding looks like this (my forward key is E):
Quote:


Bindings=(Name="E",Command="MoveForward | Axis aGas Speed=+1.0 | FOV 96",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False,LeftTrigge r=False,RightTrigger=False,bIgnoreCtrl=False,bIgno reShift=False,bIgnoreAlt=False)



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


bEnableMouseSmoothing=True

Change to FALSE. This tremendously improves the feel of the mouse when looking around in-game and navigating the UI.



To disable/adjust weapon view bob:
----------------------------------
Within WillowGame.ini:

Search for "bWeaponBob" and you should come across the following lines:
Quote:


bWeaponBob=TRUE
Bob=0.005

Edit accordingly. 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:
Quote:


UseVsync=False

Change to TRUE.



To disable voice chat:
---------------------
Within WillowEngine.ini:

Search for "bHasVoiceEnabled" and you should come across the following line:
Quote:


bHasVoiceEnabled=True

Change to FALSE.



To enable console:
------------------
*NOTE: This currently doesn't work correctly, it outputs all commands as 'SAY' commands*

Within WillowInput.ini:

Search for "ConsoleKey" and you should come across the following line:
Quote:


ConsoleKey=

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



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:
Quote:


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



To make zoom a toggle (courtesy of Miker):
--------------------------------------------------
*NOTE: This has been reported to break turret fire while in a vehicle, as well as Brick's right click punch*

Within WillowInput.ini:

Add the text below under [WillowGame.WillowPlayerInput]
Quote:


Bindings=(Name="ZoomIn",Command="StartAltFire | setbind RightMouseButton ZoomOut",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False,LeftT rigger=False,RightTrigger=False,bIgnoreCtrl=False, bIgnoreShift=False,bIgnoreAlt=False)
Bindings=(Name="ZoomOut",Command="StopAltFire | setbind RightMouseButton ZoomIn",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False,LeftTr igger=False,RightTrigger=False,bIgnoreCtrl=False,b IgnoreShift=False,bIgnoreAlt=False)

Then, edit the preexisting RightMouseButton binding to reflect the change:
Quote:


Bindings=(Name="RightMouseButton",Command="advance dbutton bAdvancedButtonAux5",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt =False,LeftTrigger= False,RightTrigger=False,bIgnoreCtrl=False,bIgnore Shift=False,bIgnoreAlt=False)

to
Quote:


Bindings=(Name="RightMouseButton",Command="ZoomIn" ,Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False,LeftTrigger= False,RightTrigger=False,bIgnoreCtrl=False,bIgnore Shift=False,bIgnoreAlt=False)



To make crouch momentary (instead of toggle, courtesy of siberx):
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Within WillowInput.ini:

Search for the following line under [WillowGame.WillowPlayerInput]:
Quote:


advancedbutton bAdvancedButtonAux1 | SwitchSeats

and change to
Quote:


Duck | SwitchSeats

You can remove the SwitchSeats variable if you do not wish to have the key switch seats as well.

If this doesn't work, make sure this line exists under [WillowGame.WillowPlayerInput], otherwise add it:
Quote:


Bindings=(Name="Duck",Command="Button bDuck | Axis aUp Speed=-1.0 AbsoluteAxis=100",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=Fa lse,LeftTrigger=False,RightTrigger=False,bIgnoreCt rl=False,bIgnoreShift=False,bIgnoreAlt=False)


To enable scroll wheel in text boxes:
-----------------------------------
*NOTE: This seems to only work within the Player Mission Log window (default key is L), and not the Mission window (when you receive missions from NPCs)*

Within WillowInput.ini:

Search for all instances of the following (there should only be two instances):
Quote:


InputKeyName="MouseScrollUp",ModifierKeyFlags=42
InputKeyName="MouseScrollDown",ModifierKeyFlags=42

remove the ",ModifierKeyFlags=42" so they look like:
Quote:


InputKeyName="MouseScrollUp"
InputKeyName="MouseScrollDown"



To make jumping feel less "floaty":
---------------------------------
*NOTE: This does affect Multiplayer games - the gravity setting of the server host affects all players*

Within WillowGame.ini:
Search for [Engine.WorldInfo] and look for the following line:
Quote:


DefaultGravityZ=-500

and change to
Quote:


DefaultGravityZ=-700

If this doesn't work, try making the changes within DefaultGame.ini located in your Borderlands install folder (Borderlands\WillowGame\Config)



Third Person Camera (courtesy of [BoX]SteroidFreud):
----------------------------------------------------
*NOTE: This has been confirmed to not work online.*
Original Post: http://gbxforums.gearboxsoftware.com...ad.php?t=80533

Within WillowInput.ini:

Search for [WillowGame.WillowPlayerInput]. Below the chunk of bindings, add the following:
Quote:


Bindings=(Name="F3",Command="Camera ThirdPerson",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False)
Bindings=(Name="F4",Command="Camera FirstPerson",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False)

F3 goes into third person, F4 switches back to first person. As such, you can swap out the keys (F3 and F4) to the keys of your liking.



Fix for hidden weapon bonus stats (courtesy of The_Shadow):
----------------------------------------------------
Original Post: http://gbxforums.gearboxsoftware.com...ad.php?t=80932

Apparently, the large font used in the UI makes it impossible to see all of the stats applied to weapons within the game. 4 lines of stats are visible, but the actual number of stats can exceed the number of lines. As such, here is a way to shrink the text:

1. Go to where Borderlands is installed and navigate to the following directory:
Borderlands\WillowGame\Localization\INT\

2. Find the gd_globals.INT file and *BACK IT UP*.

3. Open the gd_globals.INT file with Notepad and find the following line:
Quote:


AttributePresentationTranslation="$NUMBER$ $CONSTRAINT$ $DESCRIPTION$"

4. Replace it with:
Quote:


AttributePresentationTranslation=<font size="14">$NUMBER$ $CONSTRAINT$ $DESCRIPTION$</font>

(You can modify the font size to your liking, however, size 14 does well to show up to 5 lines, which is the current hardcoded limit.)

5. Save and exit.


To view your FPS (frames per second):
-----------------------------
Within WillowInput.ini:

Search for [WillowGame.WillowPlayerInput]. Below the chunk of bindings, add the following:
Quote:


Bindings=(Name="F12",Command="stat fps",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False,LeftTrigg er=False,RightTrigger=False,bIgnoreCtrl=False,bIgn oreShift=False,bIgnoreAlt=False)

Hitting F12 will show you a readout for your current FPS. It also displays your ping in MS, but I'm unsure if it is accurate.
