I was recently messing around with the setting and tried changing the graphics settings because I'm playing on a Mac and the shadows are REALLY dark (a known problem I can live with).  I changed the setting to Java and restarted the game and there was no noticeable change then I tried changing it to "Software" and now the game won't load just a blank white window.  I tried restarting my computer then uninstalling and reinstalling the game, still nothing.  I know I goofed changing a setting I didn't really understand but how do I change it back if the game won't load?  Is there some cookies or settings on my computer that are saving the settings that I can change or delete?

Renderer = software 
Window Mode = window
Full Browser = false
Resolution = 1024x768 //Dont mind this if you're not using fullscreen
Limit Frame Rate = false 
Frame Rate = 30 //Dont mind this if you have 'Limit Frame Rate' to 'false'
Texture Filter = bilinear
Anisotropy = 4 //Dont mind this if your 'Texture Filter' is not set to 'anisotropy'
View Distance = 0  
Low Texture Mode = true

I have that in my 'graphicsConfig.ini' in Eldevin game directory, which is on Software rendering, I don't know how software rendering goes for Macs but it works perfectly in Windows :).

If you can find the Eldevin game directory in Mac, you might find some file like 'graphicsConfig' open it like a text and change Renderer into 'hardware_newt' or 'hardware'.

 

 

This is for newt.

Renderer = hardware_newt
Window Mode = window
Full Browser = false
Resolution = 1024x768
Limit Frame Rate = false
Frame Rate = 30
Texture Filter = bilinear
Anisotropy = 4
View Distance = 0
Low Texture Mode = true

This is for Java.

Renderer = hardware
Window Mode = window
Full Browser = false
Resolution = 1024x768
Limit Frame Rate = false
Frame Rate = 30
Texture Filter = bilinear
Anisotropy = 4
View Distance = 0
Low Texture Mode = true 

Edit: I heard '.conf' is the file extension for Configuration type of files in Mac :)

 

Edit: Tehehehehehe, I was trying to say, Edit the Config file manually  :wub:  :P

FYI software renderer has fixed camera angles. If you like being allowed to move the camera around, then Newt or Java is the only two options you have.

There's this diagnostic tool you can download from HCS themselves if you can't find it. I think the Steam client doesn't have this but the Eldevin client comes with it.

Thank you! The diagnostic tool worked.  The code based thing probably would have worked too but I couldn't figure out how to access that stuff.
