Graphics OptionsLike its title indicates, this menu offers a variety of options that will allow you to change the graphics settings of the client.
You can play Zorgania both in a full screen mode and in a windowed mode. In full screen mode, Zorgania will take up the whole screen, while it is possible to modify the client's size if the windowed mode is activated. You can toggle between the 2 modes by using this option. Alternatively, pressing the shortcut Ctrl+F will have the same effect.
Select the graphics engine of your choice from this drop-down menu. In general the client will select the best graphics engine for you when you log in for the first time. Here you can choose which graphics engine you would like to play with Zorgania if you should experience problems with the pre-selected one. Note that a restart of the client is necessary for this change to take effect.
Show Light Effects Not all graphics cards are capable of drawing light effects fast enough for Zorgania to run smoothly. If your system is working with such a graphics card, it may be a good idea to deactivate the light effects in order to improve overall game performance. However, this will cause the light effects to be replaced by a rather ungainly mesh of black dots, so Zorgania will not look as nice as it could. Note that this option will be disabled if your graphics card is not able to draw light effects at all.
Ambient Light Here you can determine the brightness of your ambience. If you prefer to play in a mysterious and dark surrounding, you should set the ambient light slider as low as possible. Players that rather like to see everything in a bright light, should position the bar at 100%. Note that this option is only available if you have enabled Light Effects.
Level Separator By using this slider, you can determine how dark or bright lower levels will be displayed for your character. Note that you cannot use this function if Show Light Effects is not checked.
Don't Stretch/Shrink Game Window The stretching and shrinking of graphics to adapt the size of the game window is another process which can take up a lot of performance. If you check this option, the game window can only be displayed in its original size, which will make your graphics card's job easier and improve performance. When you start Zorgania for the first time, the client will work out automatically whether or not your graphics card supports stretching and set this option accordingly.
Antialiasing If you enable antialising, the Zorgania graphics will appear in a smoother look. However, if you are a fan of retro-games, you should disable antialising and enjoy a pixelated old-school look.
Frame Rate Limit By using this slider, you can modify the preset frame rate limit from 10 to 200 fps (frames per second). If you find your computer's performance is bad when running Zorgania, you should try reducing the frame rate. Note that this function is not available if you have checked "No Frame Rate Limit".
No Frame Rate Limit If you check this option, the client will try to produce as many frames as possible. If you find your computer's performance is bad when running Zorgania, you should rather try to set a frame rate limit.
V-Sync It might help to uncheck this option if your frame rate is low. However, disabling V-Sync can lead to screen tearing.
Current Frame Rate If you are logged into the game, you can see your current frame rate here. Press Alt+F8 to show or hide your current frame rate in the game window.
