Configuration file

The application requires a configuration file (in the form of an .ini file) that specifies some required parameters. The file has to be found in the current directory of execution.


  • threads: specifies how many threads the application will use. If set to 0, it will use all available threads, if set to a number less than or equal to the available threads that many will be used, any number higer than that of the available threads will be capped at twice the available quantity.
  • screenSize: specifies how big the first window will be on startup
  • buffer: specifies how many concurrent frames the renderer can manage. Minimum is 1, max is 3.
  • trace: specifies if a trace of the applications run will be generated. 0 is false, > 1 is true. Refer to the logging chapter for more info.
