Locating [.ini] and [.cfg] files?

Generally speaking, where do you find the controller-support file in your game contents folder?

You know, the file that assigns when a button on a gamepad is pressed, what button on the keyboard it is assigned to?

Some of the control commands are wrong in some of my games, and they cannot' be edited in the options menu. So this is the only other option. Finding them where the data is contained.

Usually in Library/Application Support/[game folder], but it varies from game to game.

Yeah, not in this case.

I understand it is often located in the App Support + App folders. But not in this case. I'm playing the GTA trilogy, and none of the three games have an additional folder. There is just the app itself - so the only place to look is package contents.



But there are 1,939 items. How do I do a specific finder search for [.ini] and [.cfg] files located only in these folders?

If you got it from Steam, it is possible the files you are looking for are located in ~/Library/Application Support/Steam/Steam Apps/common/

You might need to bust out the Terminal's "find" command. Something like:
Code:
find / -name *.ini -print
That should find anything on your computer with a file extension of .ini. I also *think* that the terminal
Code:
find
command by default searches inside folders and for invisible stuff.

You could try fseventer which tracks what files are being touched by an active application.
