Need advice about graphical settings

I have a 1920x1080 screen with a GTX680 card and 2 Gb of VRAM (8 Gb of RAM), and I would like to know for this game if the graphical settings in the Steam config app are enough, or if I should edit the config.div file.

In either way, what kind of setting I could put to optimize the game?

And btw what is alpha bit in the settings?

Are you having any performance issues? Other than specific compatibility problems (some people have issues with DirectX mode in Win 8), on any modern system I'm not sure changing any of the graphics settings would noticeably impact performance.

AFAIK there aren't any configuration file edits or tweaks to improve the graphics, other than what is available from the in-game options.

The 'alpha bit' option is for graphics compatibility, useful if colour keying (a way to mark parts of images as transparent) is not supported by the graphics card, or the video drivers have problems with it. At least with old hardware when the disk version was released, it was useful if there were black squares around objects in the game, other graphical artifacts or a slow mouse when parts of the UI were onscreen.

Raze is probably right, I don't know if there's a way to improve the graphics quality of the game noticeable. I didn't even recognize a difference between medium and high settings in the game's options menu. And considering your hardware, you shouldn't have problems with the performance (apart from possible engine issues).

As for 'alpha bit', Raze already implied it - you should turn it off (I guess that's the default setting) unless you experience some of the problems he mentioned, which is very unlikely.

Thanks a lot. I have not heard about this game at all, then i heard about the new one they are making, I wanted to check what they did, and I found this one. I have read reviews and I wanted to test it, as a good RPG with many possibilities and for 5 euros, it is a deal ^^

The game will run well with max settings and I couild configure it without tweaking specific INI, CFG files. This being said, for old pixel games it may not be a good idea to go for a high resolutions especially since the text will become ridiculously small. There is a patch to palliate font sizes but still the game will look very small scale, making it even more difficult to click ennemies. So better to leave it to a reasonable size. Here[www.geek.com] you'll see that on 2002 the most popular video resolution was 1024x768 and you can safely assume that the game was designed for such resolution. And since you probably have a 16:9 screen, then you shall safely go for 1366x768. I did and I find the game less stressing for the eyes.
