what about we working together to explain each of the lines in the sys.txt, some of them are self-explanatory but most of them aren't.
this would be extremely helpful for newbies and not-too-newbies.
the reason is that i realized that everytime someone posts a new sys.txt people will try it and in the process, some features that were enabled previously will disappear or something new will come up that will get us freaking out. specially because it seems that every new sys.txt posted here has a bunch of new parameters.
everyone wants the best settings to suit their needs and the best is if they could achieve that themselves by knowing what they are doing.
i'd like everyone to contribute, don't be afraid to be wrong, try and if it's not right someone else will fix. just copy, paste and edit the bottom sys.txt with the explanation of each line really replacing the ;???????????? for what you think this line will do.
I'm using the sys.txt posted by andrewpmoore with some add-ins found in this thread. I deleted the explanations in the original sys.txt. i just found that although saying "makes map drawing a lot faster" will make me think that it really does what it says, however it still won't say exactly what it is and what are its parameters.
The tags in blue were added by me, if you think they're incorrect, please correct me.
Added more lines found in other examples as well as some info provided by Shetlander.
