Default Some Commandline arguments (for PC)

You can specify commandline arguments to use when running the game by right-clicking on the "Borderland 2" game in the Steam client, selecting 'Properties' and click on the "SET LAUNCH OPTIONS..." and providing any of the arguments below:

-PreferProcessor=n - Sets the processor affinity.

-Log=name - Sets the log file name (default is Launch.log).

-OneThread - Force single threaded game (no separate rendering thread).

-NoSplash - Don't display the splash screen.

-Vsync - Force VSync on (only applies to fullscreen mode).
-NoVsync - Force VSync off (only applies to fullscreen mode).

-Windowed - Force windowed mode.
-Fullscreen - Force fullscreen mode.
-WindowedFullscreen - Force windowed fullscreen mode.

-WindowPosX=n - Set the window's horizontal screen position.
-WindowPosY=n - Set the window's vertical screen position.

-WindowTitle=name - Set the title displayed in the game window (only applies to windowed mode).

-FPS=n - Clamp framerate (FPS) to a specific value.

-NoSound - Run with sound disabled.

-NoMovies - Don't play any Bink movies.

-NoMouse - Ignore any mouse input.

-NoController - Ignore any controller input.

-ControllerOffset=n - Use a specific controller for game input (default is the first controller, ControllerOffset=1 would use the second controller).

-AlwaysFocus - Make the game think it always has Windows focus even if you Alt-Tab away from it.

-SaveDataId=n - Write profile and save game files to alternate directory (default directory name is Steam ID). These files will NOT be backed up to the Steam cloud.


Unreal Engine 3 supports other commandline arguments (what they call "Switches" on the UDN page). Note that Borderlands 2 may or may not support many of the switches listed on the UDN page...

How would I go about entering multiples of these codes? For example, I wish for the game to run with -AlwaysFocus and -NoController, would I write them as
"-AlwaysFocus-NoController"? Because that did not work for me

Just put a space between them...

"-AlwaysFocus -NoController"

The order that they are in doesn't matter either.

I would be the most ecstatic gamer EVER if they managed to get in some kind of free camera\noclip mode. I have too much fun taking screenshots in this game and would love the tools to do it justice.
