Where is that FAQ? Before I posted those numbers, I looked at the online FAQ, which told me to look at the Read Me (which isn't online), so I launched the game and navigated to the read me, and it just listed every single option as reducing performance without singling any of them out as some ungodly hit to performance.
And now I just looked again and I seem to still be missing it (yeah, it's probably right there in front of me)?
Oops, Edwin said FAQ but he meant the Performance Tips section of the ReadMe. Here's what it says:
…In addition to these general Mac actions, there are some specific in-game settings you can select to speed up the game. These are listed below in order of performance improvement (largest improvement first).
…and then it lists Screen Res, Dynamic Shadows, Ambient Occlusion, and Texture Quality as the first four items.
