You can control much of the game's appearance and behavior in this window. You can set the screen resolution, audio volume and customize the action keys.
Some advanced options are provided for optimizing the game's performance. The most important are:
- Shadows: Try to disable shadows if the game performs poorly in indoor areas.
- Anisotropic filtering: May enhance image quality at a small performance hit, but also introduce instability with some graphics drivers.
- Pathfinding quality: Pathfinding is CPU intensive. Only play with the higher settings if you have a rather fast system. Higher settings increase the distance over which creatures can find a walking path.
