 if (checkbox1.value == true) {

//           alert ("checkbox1");
 fx.property("VIDEOCOPILOT 3DArray-1202").setValue(1);//Enable Fog
}else  if (checkbox2.value == true) {
  //  alert ("checkbox2");
    fx.property("VIDEOCOPILOT 3DArray-1458").setValue(2000000);//Camera Far Plane
}else  if (checkbox3.value == true) {
    alert ("checkbox3");
}else  if (checkbox4.value == true) {
    alert ("checkbox4");
}else  if (checkbox5.value == true) {
    alert ("checkbox5");

It sounds like maybe you just need a bunch of if statements, rather than a cascading if/else, like this:

if (checkbox1.value == true) {
	// checkbox 1 code
}
if (checkbox2.value == true) {
	// checkbox 2 code
}
if (checkbox3.value == true) {
	// checkbox 3 code
}
// etc.
