    Game Launcher Additional Parameters

    Is there anyone who knows what commands can be entered into the Additional Parameters box to enable other game options?

    Yeah...(I guess) and, also, what the command does. So...what does that one do? If it was just nonsense to test me I'm a really easy mark....

    Here's a list of command line arguments for unity with explanations (under Options and further down below). Not sure if they all work with 7D2D, but there's also the -force-d3d11 command that Guppy mentioned.

    herrpohl's link is the covering most. Though note that this is typically outdated and individual arguments may or may not work with the current builds (or it might be missing newer ones).

    Also there's the game options, like -dedicated but most won't matter for the client. The only thing I can imagine of any use is -configfile= to override e.g. the savegamedir.

    How about including a -? command that pops up a text box with all of the available commands for that build?

    Just to show that there's a -configfile argument? Bit overkill

    Yeah, of course. But that's part of Unity. We can't know what is there and works and what not

    Exclamation Ping

    This is still the top result for "7dtd additional parameters" and lacks definitive answers.

    Wow. Memories.

    So in short, the parameters are unity, not 7days, and are subject to the whims of updates.

    Well, yeah, most Unity stuff (http://docs.unity3d.com/Manual/Comma...Arguments.html), game has just a bunch and most are for interaction with the Steam client.
    +connect <value> and +password <value> for connecting to a server
    -configfile=<value> for specifying a serverconfig XML
    And any -<gameprefname>=<value> to specify GamePref values like you can do with the serverconfig XML
