Anno 2070 Wiki

The Engine.ini is a text file where the Anno games preferences are found.

The preferencies store data mostly on graphical settings (e.g: RE_Shadows), Interface (e.g: FilterEventMsg) and various other options, like sounds and engine settings.

These preferences can easily be changed and modified.

--To access the demo Engine.ini file, search for "ANNO 2070 DEMO" in run rather than "ANNO 2070"--

ForceNonSsICdn=false[]

Click Start, then type "run," and select Run

Or use the "Win+R" keyboard shortcut.

Type %appdata%\Ubisoft\ANNO 2070\Config\Engine.ini in the box, click run

Here is the line to copy and paste into the run command line:

%appdata%\Ubisoft\ANNO 2070\Config\Engine.ini

It will work even if you cannot find the file manually through explorer.

Example of How to Modify the Engine.ini File[]

For example, the default/original settings for:

<EnableFourthCamPosition>0</EnableFourthCamPosition>

<EnableFourthCamPosition>1</EnableFourthCamPosition>


<SkipIntro>1</SkipIntro> : will skip the intro movie


<MouseScroll>10</MouseScroll> : change the mouse scroll speed


<KeyboardScroll>10</KeyboardScroll> : change the keyboard scroll speed
