I did find the game settings file:

C:\Users\name\AppData\Local\Sidhe\SH\application_p arameters.xml

But there's not a lot to change there. I was hoping I could turn down the settings slightly (maybe reduce the lighting quality or particles). The reason is that I also play Shatter on my HP Mini netbook (it has Nvidia Ion graphics). It runs surprisingly well given all the 3D effects, but there is a bit of lag/choppiness in some of the busier levels (especially the vertical levels for some reason). A tiny bit of tweaking and it would be flawless.

So is there anything I'm missing that I might be able to adjust?

And FYI, I did see one setting there NOT available in the normal settings editor- you can turn on anisotropic filtering. Not what I need for the netbook, but it could be nice if you want to crank the settings on your desktop :)

I'm not sure if anisotropic filtering actually did anything in the end. Shatter is very texture light so you wouldn't notice a difference.

As for turning off lighting and particles.... you can't! why? because there is no lighing or particles! Muhahahaha!
