Has anyone any experience of changing the following settings in the conf. file.
Airwarfare has a section on this, but there is no info' on these particular settings. Also does anyone know what paramaters apply for each setting (ie can I set sky=3 or diffuse light=3 ?)



Specular=2
SpecularLight=2
DiffuseLight=2
DynamicalLights=1
MeshDetail=2
VisibilityDistance=2

Sky=2
Forest=1 <----------I know what this does.
LandShading=3
LandDetails=2

LandGeom=2
TexLarge=1
TexLandQual=3
TexLandLarge=1

VideoSetupId=3
Water=3 <------------- I've tried this.
Effects=1 <--------------...and this too
ForceShaders1x=0

PolygonOffsetFactor=-0.15
PolygonOffsetUnits=-3.0


If anyone has had any luck in improving on the default look of the game I'd be interested to know what they changed. I'm particullarly interested in improving sky/lighting effects and the poly count for hills. Any screenshots or even links to older threads are welcome.

Most of those Airwarfare links don't cover the settings I'm interested in (As I stated in my first post!!)

There was a bit of help in one of those links, but it's in German. Could someone please translate this please?

Does anyone know in particular what the first settings are: Specular, Specular light, diffuse light, dynamic light?

I have "visibility distance" set to 3 in my conf. Most of the other ones in question I've tried to raise to a higher value, but it reverts to the lower value after I go in the game to to see if anything's different.

These settings were't tested in that link either:

Specular=2
SpecularLight=2
DiffuseLight=2
DynamicalLights=1

(Thanks for the link though http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif)

Those are some of the ones I tried to increase, with no luck.
