You can store anything, it works the same way as an ini file, using a key/value format. The only thing you are missing is the sections of settings, which you can handle by naming your keys appropriately. And of course, this is a binary file so no text editor editing.

Code:
[Section]
setting=value

PHP Code:
nvault_setvault "setting" "value" )

nvault_getvault "setting" szValue charsmaxszValue )
OR
iVal nvault_getvault "setting"

Ah, but what about quick editing the settings? You'd have to recompile (unless using cvars of course). Having a ready .ini file, which is more optimal and requires you to only open it and change its parameters. With cvars, no, nvault is definitely a better solution, but let's say I wanted to add/remove player classes for the next map. Editing an .ini file is better and faster than recompiling the whole code.

Exactly, this is why I mentioned (3 times) that you cannot use a text editor which is a no-go for some. You could create commands in your plugin to edit the settings, which is easier than opening notepad to do so--but that's just me.

Again, not for all cases, text files are more optimal.

Edit: After renewal of my knowledge about nVault, I've learned a lot more of what it can do, so I'd ditch the textual files. LOL
