Congratulations for the release!!!
A couple of quick questions first:
1) What does the parameter -brief_lighting do? I couldn't find any information about it in the HLP wiki.
2) Why are there two -fov parameters in the default launch command line? The first one seems to set a value of 0.72 and the second a value of 0.75.
(Additionally I would argue that setting a custom value that barely differs from the default value is pointless, since FSO actually does automatically notice the aspect ratio of the game resolution and changes the in-game fov accordingly).
I know I can change the launch parameters myself, but I was just wondering if the double fov -command had a particular purpose in the game.
