Sometimes a player will alter the settings within the game to make it suit their style of play or system. These changes are generally not cheating, except in extreme circumstances. Changing the keyboard layout to make it easier to use is usually acceptable. But changing the in-game player models and textures, or adjusting the brightness or gamma in order to make it easier to see in dark areas can be considered as cheating.
