How to change Swiss defaults for game-specific settings?

Post by chrinfinity » Tue May 15, 2018 9:19 pm

Hello all,

Swiss is kind enough to save the per-game settings at the end of the swiss.ini file, like so:
#!!Swiss Settings End!!

ID=GZLE
Name=THE LEGEND OF ZELDA The Wind Wak
Comment=No Comment
Status=Unknown
Force Video Mode=480p
Force Vertical Filter=2
Force Anisotropic Filter=No
Force Widescreen=2D+3D
Force Text Encoding=Auto
Mute Audio Streaming=No


ID=GALE
Name=Super Smash Bros Melee
Comment=No Comment
Status=Unknown
Force Video Mode=480p
Force Vertical Filter=2
Force Anisotropic Filter=No
Force Widescreen=2D+3D
Force Text Encoding=Auto
Mute Audio Streaming=No
My question is, can I somehow tell swiss that I want a certain set of settings as the blanket defaults for all games? Without needing to have a separate section in the swiss.ini for each game, unless I have a specific game I want different settings for?

P.S. When I go to page three of Swiss's settings it has the settings for the "current game," I thought this might be it, but they are not changeable on my screen. So I'm not sure what's up with that either.

Thank you :)

No one has asked for this before but I can see how it makes sense to have it. I can probably make it so that when you go to page 3 and you're not viewing the settings for a specific game it can be "default settings" which are saved elsewhere in the .ini and applied to all games unless overridden.
