Settings.json is a JavaScript Object Notation file that allows the game to save a conditional setting of a Toon or the system performance. Settings such as "accepting friend requests" or "anti-aliasing" can be found here, although these files will usually be empty and must be properly and manually inputted. Settings.json can be edited on any text editor such as Notepad.


There are several settings that can be found in settings.json. Just like any other piece of coding, each line of coding is enclosed in curly braces ({ }) and separated by commas to end a piece of code and start a new line of code. Each line of code must properly be enclosed in curly braces, separated by commas, spelled correctly, and define an appropriate parameter in order for it to work. Failing to comply may corrupt data and cause crashing until corrected. When corruption occurs and the game cannot start up properly, these files can be edited outside of the game to potentially resolve the issue.

Applicable settings are usually set to false.

  • Embedded-mode served as Disney's settings for in-browser gaming, which no longer serves a purpose since Toontown Rewritten is entirely played via the launcher.
