-In the graphics settings you can adjust the overall quality of how Aerofly FS 2 looks. Adjusting ​graphics settings ​provides ​you with the ability ​to balance performance and graphics quality+In the graphics settings you can choose your preference for graphics ​rendering, your resolution and VSync settings, and toggle whether ​you wish to see lens flare while flying
-Open the graphics settings from the main menu by clicking on “Settings” and “Graphics Settings”. ​**Note** ​- If you experience poor performance or graphical anomalies, always check to make sure you have the latest GPU (Graphics Card) driver installed.   +**Note** ​the Vulkan rendering system is still in beta so it's up to you to choose which option works best for you. In general you should see anywhere from 5-15% performance increase in certain configurations.

 +OpenGL rendering is the core standard graphics rendering system for Aerofly FS2, choose this setting if you are seeing better performance than Vulkan or you are having problems in general running the beta Vulkan rending engine.
 +
 +**Note** You won't have the option of using High Quality Anti-aliasing in this rendering mode.

 +**Vulkan**
 +
 +{{:​manual:​vulkan_aa.jpg?​600|}}
 +
 +Vulkan rendering is a new beta graphics rendering engine that has potential to increase performance by 5-15% over OpenGL rendering. Choosing this option will unlock the High Quality Anti-aliasing option. This option will provide better management over jagged edges and flickering objects. ​
 +Using high Quality Anti-aliasing may reduce performance in certain configurations.
 +
 +Use the Vulkan rendering option and High Quality Anti-aliasing with the understanding that these settings are currently in beta.
