The configuration GUI provides options for you to change the most common configuration options.
If you launch the game for the first time, it will bring you to the configuration GUI by default.
Once you have saved configurations from the GUI, the GUI will not to show again on subsequent launches.
There are two possibilities to show the configuration GUI again:
1) When exiting the game (using the menu), there is a question whether to really quit - yes or no. There's also a third option, which quits the game, but shows the GUI on subsequent launch.
2) Editing the configuration file (sdlpal.cfg) and changing the option LaunchSetting to 1.
