I'm looking to reduce the headshake a little be adjusting the offsetpsring and offsetresponse values in the d3d8.ini file in the main install, but the game keeps overwriting the new values with the old ones when I launch. Is there another copy that I should be editing instead? I look in the My Documents, etc, but don't see anything. Also, after editing, if I change the file to Read Only, the game won't launch, presumably b/c whatever's trying to overwrite is stopped.

Hi Lofty,

Robert will help you out.

For the record.

Assuming you installed WOFF to your C Drive
With WOFF not running, edit the file D3D8.ini file at "C:\OBDSoftware\WOFF\WOFFScenery\Shaders\d3d8.ini" .

Set HeadShake=0

You can also use a JSGME mod to edit the d3d8.ini with custom settings to make it easy to turn off/off. (which is what Robert is helping with.)
