I'm running the Steam version of Dishonored, and I'd like to be able to bind a command to F6 disable HUD.

I've noticed that most people actually recommend changing the DishonoredInput.ini file, which I don't have in my Config folder, so I assumed that DefaultInput.ini would do it.

However it seems like any tweaks I make to my DefaultInput.ini file don't actually have any effect. I tried disabling the game's startup movies through there unsuccessfully (I eventually disabled them by renaming the movie files themselves, so I'm good there), and now I'm trying to include this line to disable HUD:


But it's not working. Any ideas?

    Backup the DefaultInput.ini file and then rename it to DishonoredInput.ini, see if that works. Oct 11, 2013 at 6:39

Step 1: Disable automatic updates. Steam has so that it does not overwrite the changes you make to the ini files. You can do this by right clicking the game -> Properties -> Updates.

Step 2: Go to %USERPROFILE%\My Documents\My Games\Dishonored\DishonoredGame\Config\DishonoredInput.ini

Step 3: Add m_PCBindings=(Name="F6",Command="ShowHUD true")

Step 4: Press F6 Hide or display HUD.

Notice how the "config" folder in the SteamApps directory has only "Default" as start of ini names.

Notice how the "config" folder in documents has only "Dishonored" as start of ini names.

Directory Path

Correct Path: %USERPROFILE%\My Documents\My Games\Dishonored\DishonoredGame\Config\DishonoredInput.ini

Incorrect: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Dishonored\DishonoredGame\Config


Correct Code: m_PCBindings=(Name="F6",Command="ShowHUD true")

Incorrect Code: .m_PCBindings=(Name="F6",Command="ShowHUD true")

Enjoy and have fun!

  • Thank you so much, this worked! I didn't realize there were two different Config folders. Good to know! Oct 20, 2013 at 1:19
