devices & such. This won’t help graphical performance
however (FAKK2 uses OpenGL for renderering).

lines. Search for the following lines & edit the x
value as appropriate.
You can use this to set the amount of memory available to
FAKK2. A general guideline to setting this value would be 2/3
of RAM. Keep in mind Windows9x needs about 16MB RAM minimum
to run. You should also have closed all other programs before
m_filter “x”. Set x to 1 to enable mouse filtering. This will average out mouse
movements resulting in much smoother scrolling. A setting of 0
disables the filter. I’d high recommend enabling

"1". Set this to 1 to enable mouse support. If for some
reason you aren’t using a mouse then set this to 0.
r_finish “x”. Setting x
to 1 may eliminate
lag from input devices (such as keyboard/mouse) at the cost of
a few FPS. The default is 0

resolution. Select a lower resolution to improve performance. Graphics
may be slightly less appealing, but it will run better, which
is more important.
Color Depth. Set this to 16bit
to improve performance. You can set it to 32-bit for improved
visual quality (only if your card supports 32 bit colour),
this will help reduce banding.
Texture Detail. Options available are High, Medium
& Low. The higher the setting the sharper textures
in the game will appear, although performance will be lower.
The lower the setting the more blurred textures will appear in
the game, although performance will be improved.
Set this to 32 bit for best image quality & 16 bit for improved
performance. Again, your video card must support 32-bit
rendering. I’d highly recommend selecting 32-bit
texture quality & using 16-bit color depth
for the best image quality/performance trade off.
Brightness. Use this slider to set the brightness level in the game. I’d recommend
checking the visual configs section for more accurate ways for
changing brightness levels in the game.

Excessive Violence. Tick this setting to enable
the display of blood & gibs in the game. Unitcking this may improve performance when you’re fighting.
