FAKK 2 tweak guide
Posted by Thomas McGuire on August 23, 2000 - Page 3/8

Now select Advanced & edit the options available here.

Texture Filter. Trilinear will give the best image quality but take up a few MBs of your graphics card memory. FAKK2 uses a lot of textures; as such Id recommend you set this to Bilinear. This will free up some video memory for all these textures. If you are using a 32MB+ plus graphics card you might be able to set this to Trilinear & enjoy the better image quality. Although even then some maps use over 32MB of texture memory.

See the r_texturemode "x" setting for more detailed information on settings available.

Shadows. Choices available here are None (No shadows), Simple (Basic circular) & Complex (Volumetric shadows). Performance is lower when shadows are enabled. See the cg_shadows x setting for more information.

Curve Detail. Use this slider to increase/decrease the amount of polygons in curved surfaces. See the r_subdivisions x for more detailed information.

Model Detail. Use this slider to adjust the level of detail in models in the game. Slide the bar to the right to increase detail & vice versa. More detailed models may mean reduced performance.

Crosshair Scale. Use this slider to adjust the crosshair scale.

Camera Stiffness. This slider can be used to adjust the stiffness of the camera from your character. Slide the bar to the right to increase the stiffness & vice versa. The stiffer the camera is the more rigidly is will stay in position behind your character.

Camera Distance. This slider can be used to adjust the distance of the camera from your character. Slide the bar to the right to increase the distance & vice versa.

Camera Height. This slider can be used to adjust the height of the camera from your character. Slide the bar to the right to increase the height & vice versa. Id recommend leaving this about half-way.

Camera Displacement. This is similar to the Camera Height setting although it can be used to achieve a much greater vertical height than Camera Height can. Slide the bar to the right to increase the height & vice versa. Id recommend leaving this bar fully to the left.

Enable GL Extensions. Tick this to improve performance. Unticking it should be seen as a last resort to try if you cant get the game to run. Performance will be significantly lower when set to Unitcked as well.

Use Vertex Lighting. Untick this to enable Lightmap lighting of levels (real-time). Tick this to enable Vertex lighting, which is faster but uglier (static).

Dynamic Lights. Tick this setting to enable the dynamic lighting of maps. This will reduce performance, although looks better visually. Untick it to improve performance.

Multitexture On. Tick this to enable multi-texturing, this can improve performance. Untick this to disable multi-texturing.

Comp. Vertex Array. Leave this setting Ticked.

Screen Size. Use this to select the screen size of the game, this is different to running full screen or windowed. Using a smaller screen size may improve performance, although will making viewing the game more difficult. Id recommend leaving this set fully to the right, to run with maximum viewing area.

Special Effects Detail. Use this slider to increase/decrease the level of detail in special effects in the game. Slide the bar to the right to increase detail, potentially reducing performance & vice versa.

Use GL fog. Tick this to enable volumetric fog in FAKK2. This will give improved visuals (effects like fog & space filling) although will reduce performance. Untick this setting to disable volumetric fog which can significantly increase performance.

Wall Decals. Tick this setting to enable marks on the ground/walls being displayed. Untick this to improve performance. Although this is somewhat dependant on how bad your aim is.

Crosshair. Tick this setting to enable the use of the crosshair. This can help aiming accuracy. Untick it if you want to rely on vision alone.

Mouse Filter. Tick this setting to enable mouse filtering. This will average out mouse input resulting in smoother mouse movement.

Console. Tick this setting to enable the use of the console in FAKK2. This can be used to input console commands during the game.

Mini-Console. Tick this setting to enable the use of the mini-console in FAKK2. This can be used to input console commands during the game.

Notepad. Click this to open an in-game Windows Notepad. Useful for writing down notes when playing the game possibly.

GFX Info. This section contains no changeable setting, it just contains purely informational, errr, information related to graphical options.
