MadCowBalls2 – Game Settings

Game Settings

MadCowBalls2 was original created to load a lot of settings from a .ini file. It was later scaled down due to prevention of game bugs as it could make the game unplayable if the game was not able to load the file.

When you start the game it will check if this settings file have been updated. If the file is empty or doesnt exists it will be created with default settings. The game will also run a performance test (how many times can the computer render the start screen in a given time space). The graphical setting are set after. The user may also change the setting in the launcher and at default there is a fallback (if the FPS is lower than 30 for a period of time it will lower the settings in game).

If you want to edit the settings file you can find it under user/AppData/roaming/MMAapplications. The file name is MadCowBalls2.ini.
