[ANNO 1800] Feedback Quality can’t be set

Problem

I would like to change the feedback quality in the option but I don’t get an an selection list when I click on it. Only the arrow changes from an downwards arrow to a upwards one.

Cause

It only seems like the list doesn’t open, since the feedback quality is the last entry in the list and is at the bottom on the screen

The only issue is that the list doesn’t auto-scroll automatically.

Solution

Drag the scroll bar on the right hand side all the way to the bottom. This will make the list visible.

You can also change the value in the engine.ini if it still doesn’t work.

Manually change settings
All settings that can be changed in the game under Options can also be changed manually in the config-file. This can be useful if the game itself can't be started.

Where do I find the file ?

The file can be found in your user files in the folder config and is named engine.ini. Documents\Anno 1800\config

How can I edit the file ?

The file can be edited with any text editor although I don't recommend the windows editor as the formatting can get lost.
