    Default Console Variables for Video Settings (Dragonflight)

    In World of Warcraft, Blizzard gives us the ability to swap many different settings in the game with simple /slash commands, including video settings. This can be useful for players who play from different characters across different game clients on a regular basis, but who also turn down their in-game video settings on their "background" clients. By using a macro, players can simply change their video settings on the fly when moving between characters/game clients.


    I've created a full walkthrough video showing how these Console Variables can potentially be used, and while the video shows how to use them using ISBoxer, this is not limited to only ISBoxer users.





    If you have question about these Console Variables and how to use them, or any corrections to them, then feel free to post in this thread. If you are having trouble with something specific to the multiboxing software you are using, then please create a new thread.





    FAQ _________________________________________

    _How do I read the tables?
    Name of In-Game Setting Name of Console Variable (CVar) Associated with In-Game Setting
    In-Game Setting Level 1 CVar Value for In-Game Setting Level 1
    In-Game Setting Level 2 CVar Value for In-Game Setting Level 2
    In-Game Setting Level 3 CVar Value for In-Game Setting Level 3



    _How do I use these values in a macro?
    /console consoleVariable value


    _Am I locked into the pre-defined settings, or can I experiment with other values?
    Short Answer: You're locked in.
    Long Answer: Every setting has, at least, one CVar that defines its values in the game. Some settings have CVars (sometimes multiple) that will accept a range of values, but this guide no longer covers that outside of the groundEffectDist CVar, as it's unnecessary to fine tune values to that extent.


    _Are these console variables case sensitive as you show them?
    No, they are not.

    Are these variables stored server side? I was searching through my WTF folder and cannot find the file that contains them.

    They're stored in the config.wtf file, but when certain settings are disabled, they do not show in there. For example, if you are not using MSAA, then you will not see the "MSAAQuality" CVar in the config.wtf file.

    RenderScale is possibly the most underrated setting of all for your background windows.

    farclip has been by far the most detrimental to instant-swapping of any of these.

    Okay, so upon closer inspection it seems that most changes were incredibly easy to adjust for. I'm just going to keep using this thread rather than make another because it's already nicely formatted. I will still urge everyone to take an in-depth look at their macros if they're seeing performance issues after the pre-patch.

    Party on, Wayne.
