Oblivion.ini is a file in the PC version of The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion that contains the configuration information for your game. It is located in My Documents\My Games\Oblivion\ and may be edited with any text editor, so long as Oblivion is not running. Make sure you make a backup copy before you start editing; if all else fails you can delete the file and it will be recreated with defaults the next time you start Oblivion.

Notable .ini settingsEdit

  • [Controls] section: these are the mappings for all the controls of the game. For example, Quick1=0002FFFF means the first quick slot is set to the 1 key on your keyboard. Some commands (like the quick slot keys) can't be changed from within the game. You can change mappings for mouse and joystick buttons here as well, if you can find the right hex codes for them.
  • bUseJoystick: there is some evidence that setting this to 0 (disabling joystick input) will improve mouse movement.
  • iMinGrassSize: sets the width of grass blades; setting this to a high value like 160 improves framerate when outdoors, with little visual difference.
  • bAllowScreenShot: setting this to 1 enables screenshots using the print screen key.

Full list of .ini settingsEdit

^ EDIT: This .ini appears outdated

This is an example of an Oblivion.ini file. Very few of the settings are documented, and even fewer can be changed from within the game. We hope to bring light to them here.

NOTE: Every single person's .ini file is different, because they are based largely on a user's hardware, windows settings, and game preferences. It is for that reason that there are no .ini files for download. Unfortunately, you'll have to edit your own.
