2 questions.

1)When WC3 is installed, does it automatically detect the best settings for your computer or is it a default setting?

2)What effects a systems performance more, Model Detail or Texture Quality?

thx

1. I suspect it's a default setting. But you never know. I always play around with these things to find the best settings.

2. That depends on your video card... if you have alot of ram on your video card, you should have not problem turning up texture detail... but if you don't, it will cause a big performance hit. Model detail will depend on how many polygons/triangles your video card can handle. Depends on your video card as to which of these is a bigger bottleneck.
