Edit the value of each setting to your desire.

Or you can make a batch/launcher like this in the root directory of the Game Launcher:

@"game.exe" -fullscreen +lightquality <lightquality> +screenwidth <screenwidth> +screenheight <screenheight > +multisample <multisample>

Change what's in the "<>" with a value. Here is an example:
 @"game.exe" -fullscreen +lightquality 2 +screenwidth 1600 +screenheight 900 +multisample 4
To remove full screen, just delete that argument.

  1. Because of all the people who got the Vectronic demo to work and because of the way you responded to my questions, I had the feeling I'm asking stupid questions with no need for answers. However, after 2 days not being able to start the demo and wanting to see what Vectronic is about so much, I don't care anymore.

    I got rid of the .dll problem but now when I launch Vectronic.exe a blank white window and a cmd window appear for a split second and then disappear. After that - nothing.

    I have the feeling I have to extract the data.zip file but when I try to I get this message:

    [i]Enter a password for the copied file ...\VectronicDemo\Maps\dev1_balltest.map in the archive data.zip[/i]

    1. It's possible that your card maybe unsupported. You can run it with a batch file with the exe containing:

      @"Vectronic.exe"
      pause

      This will prevent the console from closing allowing you to read it and see what the issue is. The zip file is encrypted to a point that no one can extract any files from it. I never meant for my reply to come off as hurtful/rude. I took it as I did not go a good enough job highlighting the help page.

    5. Since the demo's release, the engine provider released a Steam app to allow anyone to easily play demo's and games that were developed in Leadwerks.

      http://store.steampowered.com/app/355500

      Install that app, it will install any required software that;s needed. then go to this page and subscribe to it:

      After downloading, the demo should be ready to play. Sorry for the late reply, I'll update this page with the game launcher option once a Linux version is released.
