Widescreen resolution
Gameplay is pillarboxed. 16:9 only.

Borderless fullscreen windowed
Anisotropic filtering (AF)
Force through drivers.
Anti-aliasing (AA)
Nvidia users can use Nvidia Inspector to force MSAA and SGSSAAwithout bits.
(Since the game is OpenGL, SGSSAA is equivalent to "Transparency Supersampling" settings rather than "Sparse Grid Super Sampling". So, 8xSGSSAA = 8xQMSAA + 8x TrSSAA)
Downsampling is not possible.
Vertical sync (Vsync)
On by default with no switch. Can be forced off but game stutters without it.
