It will be a little hard on paint till its broken in. Mine was destroying paint in the breach at first, 4-5 cases in it smoothed out and has only gotten better.
As for terminology...
Dwell: how long the valve stays open. The longer it stays open the more air comes out. Higher dwell will allow you to run at lower operating pressures (controlled by the hpr), and lower dwell will require a higher operating pressure.
Debounce: electronically filters your trigger pulls. Micro switches can have false reads, giving you more than one shot per trigger pull. Set it at 3 or 4. If you find yourselft shooting more than you pull the trigger (in semi) then bump it up again. This isn't a big issue unless you play tourney where it can cost you points.
Ball detection time: There are lazer eyes in the breach that detect when a ball has been chambered and is ready to fire. The ball detection time is how long a ball must be detected before the marker will fire. Balls will often bounce in the breach as they land, going back up the feedneck partially before coming back down and resting. If this setting is too low the ball may still be partially in the feedneck or not at a fully rested state. That=broken paint.
Good luck, it's a great marker.
