From Mabinogi World Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This document describes the game client's option dialog (accessible by pressing the "windows" key and selecting "options").

To open the Option dialog, open the System menu and choose Options.

System

Video

Video tab
Video Card
Graphics settings changed. Restart the game to apply the change.
Choices: Varies by Graphics Card model and number of monitors.
  • These choices may not be available on every computer.
RES (Resolution)
Lower resolution helps display softer animation. Resolution that is higher than the hardware specification may slow the game play.
This option has no effect in windowed mode, use edge selection to change the size of the game in windowed mode.
Choices: 800*600, 1024*768, 1152*864, 1280*960, 1280*1024, 1600*1200 (widescreen mode: 1280*720, 1280*768, 1280*800, 1680*1050, 1920*1200)
  • These choices may not be available on every computer.
Color Depth
The higher the color quality, the sharper and cleaner the game will look. If the settings exceed the hardware specification, however, the game will slow down considerably.
Choices: "It doesn't matter," "Low (16 bit)," "High (32 bit)"
Full-screen Anti-aliasing
High level anti aliasing can generate soft graphics on the screen. Settings exceeding the hardware specification may create issues with the game play. Anti aliasing mode is not differentiated by brand names of graphic card vendors.
Interface Color
Modifies the appearance and transparency of the HUD and windows inside the game.
Color Choices: Sky Blue Glass, Electric Gray, Doll Pink, Gray Thin Grass, Flaming Dev, Ivory, Cherry Pink, Neon Green, Neon Pink, Spring Herbs, Golden Apricot, Urban Man, Old Mustard, Summer Sea
Transparency Choices: Opaque, Translucent, or Transparent (Only 2 will appear depending on the interface color selected)
Brightness

Adjusts the range of view for the surrounding landscape. You can expand to a maximum of 300%, but expanding may slow the game speed. Changing this option will not influence the vision for other characters, monsters, changing objects (i.e. campfire, seal stone, etc.).
Widescreen Mode
Toggles the ability to select wide screen resolutions in the Resolution drop down.
Note: You can always see the same horizontal distance regardless of height, meaning you will see less vertically the wider you make the game. This can make it hard to see the health of tall enemies.
This option has no effect in windowed mode.
Use Film Style Post Shader
Digital post processing is done to render a movie-like screen. (Some may be unable to choose this option.)
Use Vertical Sync
Synchronize game rendering and monitor frequency. In case of PCs with lower spec, this may lead to minor performance drop.
This option only works in full-screen mode.
