Screen

  • Resolution: Set the resolution that is used ingame. You can type arbitrary values in the box or choose from the list. Note that EOL will fail to start if your graphics device doesn't support the resolution you have specified.
  • Zoom: Set the ingame zoom while playing (how far the camera is from the kuski). The greater the zoom, the closer the camera is. Entering extreme values may crash EOL.
  • Center camera: When enabled, kuski is always in the middle of the screen regardless of whether he's facing left or right. When disabled, the camera will "fly" to the other side when turning in such a way that what's behind the kuski will be off the screen.
  • Zoom textures: Are textures zoomed or not?


Navigator

  • Size: Size of the minimap. You can type arbitrary values or pick dimensions from the list.
  • Zoom: How much the minimap is zoomed in or out.


Lev packs

  • Edit: Edit an existing level pack.
  • Delete: Delete the selected level pack.
  • Up: Move the selected level pack up in the list.
  • Down: Move the selected level pack down in the list.


Options

  • Fast Search with L-Ctrl: When enabled, you must press and hold left Ctrl and type to start searching for a level/replay in the ingame lists. When disabled, you don't have to hold left Ctrl (just starting typing is enough).
  • Default ground/sky: When enabled, the names of ground and sky textures will be ignored in level files and default ones will be used.
  • Still food: When enabled, apples and flowers will not hover up and down when playing (note that this doesn't disable the rotating animation).
  • Replay saving reminder: When enabled, you will be prompted to save your replay if you make a best time in a level and try to exit the "Play again" -menu in some way. You'll be only prompted once.
  • Pictures in background: When enabled, the pictures will always be behind kuski when playing.
  • Edit locked levs: When enabled, you are able to edit locked levels with the ingame editor.
  • Center map: When enabled, kuski will be in the middle of the minimap. Otherwise kuski is on the left/right side of the map according to where he is facing.
  • Force vsync off: Disables vertical synchronization, which means that the FPS is not limited to screen refresh rate (usually 60 FPS).
  • Sorting off: Disables replay/level list sorting. If your external level list/replay list loads slowly, you can try to enable this option.
  • Map align: Sets how the minimap is shown in the screen. If you choose None, the minimap will fly on the other side of the screen when turning.
  • FPS limit: Sets a limit for FPS. Minimum FPS is 30.
  • Capture FPS: Sets the FPS for capturing frames from replay (F1+Enter to start capturing).
  • Chat lines: Number of chat lines shown ingame.


Patch

  • Save settings: Saves the changes you have made to eol.exe file. Make sure you're able to write to eol.exe (EOL is not running and eol.exe isn't read-only) when you press this button.
