Default and you don't have to restart

One thing that I love about the Source engine is that you can switch graphics settings on the fly, without quitting and restarting the entire game. That's the mark of an excellent engine.

None of this Doom 3, FarCry, "Changes will take effect the next time you start the game," crap. I hate that. Having to quit to desktop, totally wipe the memory, skip over all those damn logo ads, and reload the entire game engine.

I hate games that make you do that. That sucks.

Kudos to the Valve team.

That is a nice feature. Makes it easy to finetune AA/AF.
