Registry

Outwars registry entries exist at two places, which I think are simply the system wide and per-user version:

 

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\VirtualStore\MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Games\Outwars\1.0.0

[HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-2329423243-638743303-2969532981-1001_Classes\VirtualStore\MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Games\Outwars\1.0.0]

Probably you only need one of them.  The first is within WOW6432Node because Outwars is 32 bit software running within my 64 bit Windows 10 installation. 

These registry keys are quite obvious as to what they do, and they will be familiar if you have perused the settings menus within Outars:

"StereoOr3D"=dword:00000002
"HeadphonesOrSpeakers"=dword:00000004
"OverallVolume"=dword:0000ffff
"SFXVolume"=dword:0000ffff
"WavMusicVolume"=dword:0000bbbb
"CDMusicVolume"=dword:00007777
"BassVolume"=dword:00000000
"TrebleVolume"=dword:00000000
"OutputFlipped"=dword:00000000
"Menu Options"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,01,00,00,00
"Delta Side"=dword:00000000
"Detail Level"=dword:00000000
"Resolution Index"=dword:00000005
"Fog Enabled"=dword:00000001
"Window XPos"=dword:00000000
"Window YPos"=dword:00000000
"NetPlayerName"="MadRush"
"NetProviderName"="Internet TCP/IP Connection For DirectPlay"
"NetLevelName"="anub1m"
"InputDeviceStatus"=dword:00000007
"InputKeyboardStatus"=dword:00000001
"InputJoystickStatus"=dword:00000000
"InputMouseStatus"=dword:00000001

Menu Options strikes me as not immediately obvious.

Aside from:

"Window XPos"=dword:00000000
"Window YPos"=dword:00000000

I suppose those might be used if the game supported a windowed mode.

"InputDeviceStatus"=dword:00000007
"InputKeyboardStatus"=dword:00000001
"InputJoystickStatus"=dword:00000000
"InputMouseStatus"=dword:00000001

I am not certain what those are but it looks like simply 0 or 1 for if a class of device is in use.  Doesn't seem interesting or important.

Key bindings

Then we have

"InputJoystickCaps"= { ... }
"InputKeyboardMap"= { ... }
"InputJoystickMap"= { ... }
"InputMouseMap"= { ... }

which contain your keyboard, mouse, and joystick bindings.  This bit is relevant because you can backup and restore or even switch between your custom key bindings by making .reg files with InputKeyboardMap.  The format is unknown but I bet you it is very straight forward and could easily be figured out. 


"mouseHSensitivity"=dword:00000005
"mouseVSensitivity"=dword:00000005

These two are obvious
