First scene

Choose which scene is to be shown right after the loading screen. Normally this will be some kind of main menu (new game, load/save game, quit etc).

Active character

Choose with which character you want to start on the first scene.

Standard Language

If no language is selected by the user (e.g. with SmartSetup or the .ini file), the game will be started with the language set here.

Intro movie

Choose a video to be shown right after the loading screen. A possible video might be a logo or something similar.

Allow dragging of objects from inventory

If checked the player can drag items from the inventory by pressing the left mouse button. A second click will drop and use it on an object, item or a character.

Activate standard command after an Action

Choose weather to activate the standard command or not after an action and also if a standard command should be activated at all (it will usually be the "walk" command).

Example:

The User executes the command 'open door'. In case you set it to Never the command 'open door' will remain activated after the action has been executed. When choosing

Always

the standard command will be activated after the command has been executed.

Only after successful execution of an action

means that the standard command will only be activated if the action 'open door' exists at all.
