Options.INI File

The Options.ini contains Lobby and Player options that are generally set using the various OPTIONS menus in-game. However, a number of Options (or ranges of values) are available that are not directly supported by the Options user-interface.

Fogs and Filters are part of ovshowroadszmin and ovshowroadszminf. Increasing these will make overlays such as supply and fog of war visible to higher zoom levels. This will certainly impact game performance.
