Tweaks to improve the/my game - graphics, controls etc
Hi everybody,

since I wanted to get my joystick working like I wanted it to work some days ago and I am experiencing flickering background textures in space for some days now, I was looking for solutions and I stumbled upon
"/cmdlist" to be typed into chat, giving a really huge list of commands, STO provides and understands.
Yet, my joystick isn't working as I wanted to and the textures still flicker, I recognized a lot of options, not beeing available through the options window. So I call them hidden options.
I tried some of them by typing them into chat too, but they don't seem to work or they need a parameter.
So I thought, I just put some of these commands here, anyone knowing how they do work, writes a little about it, so other and me can make use of them.
And before someone complains: I have used the board search, found "keybinds for dummies" or "X360 controller" and some topics about texture flickering, but not one single guide how to improve graphics/performance.

# There are some movement orders with a "1! at the end, for example "forward1" or "left1". I know what "left" does, but the commands with an "1" at the end don't work for me.
# d3d11 or d3d9
# comicShading (think this comes from Champions Online)
# a lot more graphic options like postprocessing, shadows, water, dof, fxquality, disablesplatshadows and a lot more and I don't know which a available through options window.

It's sad, that there are so many commands with "no comments provided".

/edit: okay, I think I found the DX11 renderer hiddon within the troubleshooting, with "beta" at it's end. How save is it to use?

I think you need a space for the commands and numbers, so left 1, not left1. d3d11 and d3d9 should switch between Direct X 11 and Direct X 9. Dx11 is safe to use, but it has many graphical glitches. Most of the graphical options listed should be available in the options.

Thansk so far. But its really "left1" not "left 1" and I wonder, what this command will do in difference to "left".
