# Set (console command)

## Description

This command sets the specified CVar to a given value.

## Usage

At the console type…

set <CVar> <value>

## Parameters

• <CVar> - The CVar to modify.
• <value> - the value to set the CVar to. Numbers can be enclosed in quotes.

## Notes

If your value is a string, don’t forget to put quotes around it. You can sometimes do without, but results may vary if the string contains space characters.

When used in a startup parameter Set has expanded functionality than when used in the console. When using set in-game, restrictions are applied. Some CVar’s are read-only once the game has started (like some rendering options) to avoid that the game might come in an unpredictable state when those are modified.
