User settings

In addition to common settings, the application provides an extended set of settings allowing to tweak it even more.

These advanced settings must be placed in a file called “user_settings.conf”, saved inside the application folder (usually “/sdcard/alpinequest/”).

Be sure to use the last version so all settings are available.

You must restart the application after changing any of these settings.
