Guild Wars 2 Command Line Tips

Guild Wars 2 has several command line arguments that can be added to the launcher short-cut and will take effect when the game is started. These commands affect behaviors such as login, diagnostics, and graphics/audio.

GW2 Properties

To use these commands you need to right-click on the GW2 short-cut and select “Properties”. From there navigate to the “Target Area” field where the GW2 executable should be indicated:

"...Guild Wars 2Gw2.exe"

The desired command line arguments should be added after the quotation marks, with each argument beginning with a space:

"...Guild Wars 2Gw2.exe" -windowed

The above command will run Guild Wars 2 in windowed mode. Here are some of the most useful command line arguments:

-autologin

The “autologin” command will log you in automatically, assuming that you have the game client set to remember your account name and password.

-bmp

The “bmp” command forces the game to save screenshots as .bmp files. BMP files are higher quality and larger size.

-maploadinfo

The “maploadinfo” command shows diagnostic information such as loading percentage and time elapsed during the map loading screen.
