Dynamic properties of Materials

Can anybody tell me what the dynamic properities of materials (F5 -
blender 2.42a) do? I searched BlenderWiki and this site but could not find anything.

I am using softbodies and am not sure whether/how these settings may/not impact softbodies. I notice it contains a “Restitut” value which mentions “Elasticity of collisions” in the mouseover text, so I am not sure whether it may affect the collision of softbodies…

Or does it refer to gaming options?


that panel refers to gaming options
