Hi,

I use GameGuru Classic and i am very happy with it.

I have finished Tutorial Serie 1 and i build some graphical case (lava fountain, teleporter, flotability, fly, personnal decals, ...) and simple maps, still working/learning on interacting characters, memory array, and so on..

I also starting to build map with lot of kind items.
I avoid animated plants to not lose fps, i have also limited far view with mountains arround my zone (like in tutorial serie 1).

When i make a standalone game, the compiler include possibility to obtain lowest details. (by detecting low fps)

In this mode it's fast. The details are low but for the simples games i build it's enough.

Is there a script i could include in a trigger zone linked to my start position marker to execute a "lower detail script" ?
I dont know all script function but i think it's the kind of script some experienced user have already done.

I would be pleased if somebody give me hint or link to find one.

Best regards
I am not english so xcuse my syntax, grammary or anything else wich could occure some ununderstanding

I'm not aware of a script that can turn that particular mode on or off. The efficiency steps in tutorials (you already mentioned) will be your best bet. Things like texture optimization (paint.net) and LOD for models which I've heard can be set in the .fpe? Good work!

SetGameQuality( g_iGraphicChoice ) is the function to call.

Not sure what values it can take but 0 or 1 will probably be 'low' settings.

Edited to add:
According to the graphics.lua script in titlesbank:
if iHighlightButton==GRAPHICS_LOW then
g_iGraphicChoice = 1
SetGameQuality(g_iGraphicChoice)
end
if iHighlightButton==GRAPHICS_MEDIUM then
g_iGraphicChoice = 2
SetGameQuality(g_iGraphicChoice)
end
if iHighlightButton==GRAPHICS_HIGH then
g_iGraphicChoice = 3
SetGameQuality(g_iGraphicChoice)
end

So 1 is lowest setting.
Been there, done that, got all the T-Shirts!
