Fancy a free RPG game?

Postby MintBean » Wed Jul 05, 2017 6:06 pm

I bought this for around £10 a few years back and enjoyed it quite a lot. Surprised to see it for free.

Have you gotten in to run in any resolution above 800x600?

It supports 800x600 only. Either full screen or windowed. Book 2 and 3 support I think 1024x768 but no higher than this. Limitation of the game engine, which hasn't been updated.

It's a real immersive game though. I played all three books years ago. Were a lot of fun. But yeah, the game engine is dated and that's a shame. As book 1 is free I'd still give it a try; if you can see past the engine limitation and you like book 1, you will love books 2 and 3 :mrgreen:

If I run windowed it's fine. If I run non windowed then screws up my widgets after exit.

I might have had the same issue in the past. I think after playing I just logged out and back in to clear resolution issues.

Should work fine I think. I only have Intel integrated graphics.

I should check this forum more often. Hmmm. Thanks for the headsup, Mr. xenopeek!
I'm new to Linux.
