Does installing libraries affect former settings?

Postby windumbnew » Tue Aug 29, 2017 12:28 pm

I recently compiled a new fps game. In the readme the dependencies were listed and i installed them. Question now is: Do newly installed graphics libraries and so on affect the former settings or performance of earlier installed games (which used the "old packages") in any way? And if yes how can I switch to the best possible settings then?

Affecting settings depends entirely on the application you installed the libraries for, and of course, the libraries themselves.
There is no spoon.
