==== Key codes ====
===== Keyboard =====
Keyboard names are based on the [https://wiki.libsdl.org/SDL_Scancode SDL scancode].

The key name is constructed as follows:

 * Take the name from the “Key Name” column of the aforementioned webpage
 * Convert it to lower-case
 * Replace spaces with underscores

Examples:

|| *Code* || Description ||
|| `a` || A ||
|| `f1` || F1 ||

|| `mouser` || Right mouse button ||
|| `wheelup` || Mouse wheel up ||
|| `wheeldown` || Mouse wheel down ||

===== Controller/Gamepad/Joystick =====
Controllers, gamepads and joysticks are written in a somewhat cryptic syntax.

== `Schemes/Ammo/<SchemeName>.hwa` ==
A weapon scheme. `<SchemeName>` is the name of this weapon scheme. This file contains a long sequence of numbers between `0` to `9` to configure all weapon settings.

The number string has 4 equally long sections, in this order:

 * Start ammo (9 = infinite)
 * Crate probability (higher = more)
 * Ammo in crate
 * Delay

In each section, each number represents one weapon. The order of these weapons is noted in the source code file `weapons.h` ([https://hg.hedgewars.org/hedgewars/file/tip/QTfrontend/weapons.h#l24]). This means the first number of a section is for the grenade, followed by the cluster bomb, then bazooka, and so on.

== `schemes.ini` ==
Legacy file for game schemes for version 0.9.23 and older. Since 0.9.24, this file is no longer actively used, it is now only used to import schemes to the new format when the `Schemes/Game/` directory has not been created yet.

=== {{{[schemes]}}} ===

== `weapons.ini` ==
Legacy file for weapon schemes for version 0.9.23 and older. Since 0.9.24, this file is no longer actively used, it is now only used to import weapon schemes to the new format when the `Schemes/Ammo/` directory has not been created yet.

=== {{{[General]}}} ===
_List of weapon settings as key-value pairs, each with a string name and integer value_

|| *Setting* || *Type* || *Description* ||
|| `<Scheme name>`=93919...11101 || Integer || Weapon settings. `<Scheme name>` is the name of the scheme. The number string has the same meaning as in the new ammo scheme file ||

== `TeamName.hwt` ==
These files are found in the `Teams` directory and contain the team settings, one file per team.

=== {{{[Team]}}} ===
_General team settings_

|| *Setting* || *Type* || *Description* ||
|| Name=!TeamName || String || Name of team ||
|| Grave=Statue || String || Type of grave created when hog dies ||
|| Fort=Plane || String || Type of fort if Forts Mode is enabled ||

|| Rounds=0 || Integer || _Unused_ ||
|| Kills=0 || Integer || _Unused_ ||
|| Deaths=0 || Integer || _Unused_ ||
|| Suicides=0 || Integer || _Unused_ ||

=== {{{[Binds]}}} ===
Key bindings of the team. Teams can optionally overwrite the global key bindings or leave everything at default.

This section follows the same format as in `settings.ini`, with one addition: The key code `default` is used for using the default (global) key binding.

==== Values ====
The special value “`default`” is for the default keybinding as specified in the game preferences.

Regarding other keys: See the [ConfigurationFiles#%5BBinds%5D “Binds” section of settings.ini].


=== {{{[Campaign%20<CAMPAIGN_NAME>]}}} ===
This section stores campaign variables which are stored and read by Lua scripts. Replace “`<CAMPAIGN_NAME>` with the folder name of the campaign. Example: The section for “A Classic Fairytale” would be “`[Campaign%20A_Classic_Fairytale]`”.

Campaign variables are stored on a key-value basis, where the key is the name of the campaign variable and the value is the value of the campaign variable.

Campaign variable names and their values can are chosen by the Lua script authors, but there are some special variables which are used to determine which missions are available in the main menu and to determine which missions and campaigns have been completed.

For linear campaigns, the variables `Progress` and `Won` are used.
For non-linear campaigns, the variables `UnlockedMissions`, `MissionX`, `MissionXWon` and `Won` are used.
The variables should not be mixed up.

Completed missions and campaigns get a check mark in the campaign screen.

|| *Setting* || *Type* || *Description* ||
|| `Progress` || Integer || This variable stands for the number of completed missions in a linear campaign, starting with mission 1. For each completed mission, the next one gets unlocked. If the number is `0`, only the first mission is available. ||
|| `UnlockedMissions` || Integer || This number specifies how many missions are unlocked. If this variable is set, then the variables `Mission1`, `Mission2`, etc. must be used to specfify the IDs of the unlocked missions. ||
|| `MissionX` || Integer || E.g. `Mission1`, `Mission2`, etc. Contains the `campaign.ini` ID of the `X`th unlocked mission, must be used together with `UnlockedMissions` ||
|| `MissionXWon` || Boolean || E.g. `Mission1Won`, `Mission2Won`, etc. If `true`, the mission with the number `X` in `campaign.ini` has been completed. ||
|| `Won` || Boolean || If `true`, the team has completed the campaign. Note that campaign victory is completely separate from mission victory, so this setting must be set seperately. ||

If neither `Progress` nor `UnlockedMissions` is set (which is the case for new teams), only the first mission (mission 1 in `campaign.ini`) is available.

==== Examples ====
Simple campaign with 10 missions, missions 1-5 are available and missions 1-4 count as completed:

{{{
[Campaign%20Simple_Campaign]
Progress=4
}}}

Simple campaign with 6 missions. This campaign and all its missions have been unlocked and completed:

{{{
[Campaign%20Simple_Campaign_2]
Progress=6
Won=true
}}}


Complex campaign with 13 missions, missions 2, 7 and 3 are available (in that order):
{{{
[Campaign%20Complex_Campaign]
UnlockedMissions=3
Mission1=2
Mission2=7
Mission3=3
}}}

Another campaign with some custom campaign variables:
{{{
[Campaign%20Another_Campaign]
Progress=2
MyCustomVariable=54
MyCustomString=Hedgewars
}}}

=== {{{[Mission%20<MISSION_NAME>]}}} ===
This section stores mission variables. Mission variables are very similar to campaign variables, but they are for single missions (training/challenge/scenario) that are not part of a campaign. Replace “`<MISSION_NAME>` with the file name of the mission.

Like campaign variables, mission variables are stored on a key-value basis. You can choose custom names but there are also a few special key names with a special meaning.

`Won` is to mark victory and it's often useful to be used together with `onGameResult`. The other special keys are to store challenge records. Use these only when they make sense.

|| *Setting* || *Type* || *Description* ||
|| `Won` || Boolean || If `true`, the team has completed the mission. ||
|| `Highscore` || Integer || Team's best score in this mission, where higher = better ||
|| `Lowscore` || Integer || Team's best score in this mission, where lower = better ||
|| `TimeRecord` || Integer || Team's best time (in milliseconds) in this mission, where lower = better ||
|| `TimeRecordHigh` || Integer || Team's best time (in milliseconds) in this mission, where higher = better ||
|| `AccuracyRecord` || Integer || Team's highest accuracy in this mission, in percent ||
