You're making absolutely no sense. HelioS-Hook? How does that correlate to the fact of modifying an ini. You don't know what an external hack is, don't you? So stop loading your points, no one said anything about hacks nor cheats. Get your facts straight and dont get shit twisted. Read and comprehend.

Not at all.
Everything you just said can be done in game through the options, so I don't know what you're talking about.

I'm not defending the fact of using tweaks, just explaining it to ppl like you.
I believe he is simply explaining that people CAN do these things, not that they should.
And perhaps that some setting changes aren't exactly considered cheating (like turning off music to better hear footsteps), just preferences, but changing some settings could get out of hand to the point of having an advantage.
It isn't the same as using a bot, though and because of this TOST can't really do anything about that edited ini file other than let it slide.
Given that information it is nice to know there will be less of these shenanigans when TO4 is released.
TOST actually did/does prevent certain ini tweaks like:
- clear water / no water surface texture
- completely white walls
- lagging on purpose via specific console commands bound to a key
Just to name a few. The things that still work just weren't seen as cheating/illegal by the TOST team. TOST can control/disable everything in the inis.
