Additional advanced information:

When the game is loaded, the init.txt file in the scripts
folder is executed in the console and will assign the
default key bindings and other settings. There is a large
variety of console commands available for use-- which are
listed in the commands.txt file. Simply toggle (activate)
the console in game to enter any commands, and then toggle
the console again (deactivate) when you are finished. This
will allow you to continue playing your game.
You can also edit the init.txt file to suit your own
For example, to increase (brighten) the gamma for the screen
gamma 50
gamma 60
Console commands can also be bound to keys, the syntax is:
bind <key> <up/down> "<command>"
If you want to bind this key every time you play insert
this line in your init.txt file.
