IGO8 Tips & Tricks with sys.txt settings

Thu, 02/25/2010 - 16:48 — yanik

Well I decided to start trying to compile all of the settings for sys.txt in iGo8 that I could come across. Wow it ended up being a lot. Note this is only for iGo8, and not all settings will work in all builds of iGO8. There are an OBSCENE amount of sys.txt settings. I came across some really interesting ones along the way, such as the [rawdisplay] section. The known categories are:

UPDATED 3.23.09. I went through the threads and added a hole SLEW of new entries. List now with alphabetical goodness. Thanks to everyone who contributed. This list just gained I would say around 40 entries. Some entries appear in more than one place so keep your eye on that in the sys.txt (try to keep it to one appearance in the file). It took me around 4-5 hrs just to update.

EDIT oct 21, 2009 : for a short explanation of the lines, see post #132 ([Only Registered Users Can See Links . Click Here To Register])
All credits go to D.I.I.
(When I - or one of the other mods - find time, we could merge the description in this post.

These are the different settings that can be changed. a ; means that iGo8 ignores what ever comes after it. Since I copied and pasted these, you will see some commands with a ; before it, this means the person I copied it from didn't want that command to run. If you want it to run, remove the ;. Also, you can add a comment after a command (so you remember what it does) by simply adding a ; then the comment. You will see this here and there in the code set. Also, if you know possible values for settings or new settings or categories. Please post and I will update this thread.

Also, these may apply to other areas (there is more than one config file, such as sytem.ini, but I think they all have equal priority.
