Launch options

For ease of use, and to help with testing of mods the game offers certain launch options, or start arguments. You can usually do this with most programs, the only problem is knowing what they are.

Here is a list of possible options, that we know of so far for Farming Simulator 19:

  • -cheats Enables cheats in the games console in-game
  • -autoStartSavegameId 3 Loads the savegame automatically using the number as the save ID
  • -restart Prevents intro videos from playing and will also keep logging the game to the logfile.
    !WARNING the log files can get very largeĀ 
  • -disableFramerateLimiter removes the FPS cap (should be disable via settings if really needed)
  • -autoConnectDebugger Automatically connects the debugger software
  • -debuggerAddress IP of debugger to connect to
  • -mpDebuggable Enables debugging in multiplayer

How do you set these? Well, there are a few different ways to do this. If you installed the game via Steam, you need to right-click the game in your Steam library and go to Properties, where you have the Launch options input area.

But if you installed the game from other sources, like a DVD or somewhere else, and you have a shortcut to run the game on your desktop, you will have to do this a little differently.

Right-click on the desktop shortcut (if you don't have a shortcut, right-click the game .exe file and click "Create shortcut") and select Properties. Then in the "Shortcut" tab, you will have the Target setting. You need to the arguments at the end of this row, without removing anything that's already there. Also, make sure you leave a space before every command. Then you can click Apply and OK buttons to close the settings.
