    66== Graphics Settings ==
    7 There are a few settings you can change via the in-game menu as well. You do that by clicking on '''Menu''', then '''Settings''', and there check/uncheck the '''Enable Water Reflections''', and '''Enable Shadows''' checkboxes. This can be helpful if the game is slow.
    8 
    9 Here are the main graphics settings you may be interested in changing:
    10 
    11  * Windowed: If you want to always start the game in windowed mode instead of fullscreen, then add `windowed=true`. You can also adjust the game window size by setting `xres` and `yres` to reasonable values (the minimum supported window size is 1024x768).
    12  * Fancy water: If you have an older graphics card, or just don't want all the fancy effects, you can disable them by adding the following line:
    13 {{{
    14 waterugly = true
    15 }}}
    16  * Shadows: You can disable shadows by adding `shadows=false`.
    17  * Particles: You can disable particles by adding `particles=false`.
    18  * Render path: If you have any problems with graphics due to an older graphics card, add the line `renderpath=fixed` to test the game without shaders. If this fixes the problems, please [/newticket report] it as a bug to us.
    19 
    20 === Advanced graphics (GLSL only) ===
    21 If you are using the shader renderpath and have a graphics card/driver with good OpenGL 2.1 support, you can enable some ''experimental'' graphics effects by setting `preferglsl=true`. These include:
    22 
    23  * Distance fog. Applies a subtle fog effect on distant terrain and objects.
    24  * Smooth LOS. Smooths the movement of the "line of sight" (aka. "fog of war") around units. Enabled by setting `smoothlos=true`.
    25  * Advanced mapping effects on buildings (such as AO, parallax, normal and specular mapping). Depending on your hardware, you can set `materialmgr.quality=10` to enable all the effects, `5` to enable only some of the effects, or `0` to turn them off.
    26  * Postprocessing. Enables additional effects, such as brightness/contrast control, depth-of-field, LDR bloom, etc. Set `postproc=true`.
    27  * Fancy water settings. Enables more realistic water effects like depth-based color, surface shadows, coastal foam and waves. See `waterfancyeffects`, `waterrealdepth`, `waterrefraction`, `waterreflection`, and `shadowsonwater` settings.
     7Some settings you can change via the in-game menu as well. You do that by clicking on '''Menu''', then '''Settings''', and there check/uncheck the '''Enable Water Reflections''', and '''Enable Shadows''' checkboxes. This can be helpful if the game is slow.
