Re: I really don't like the ending [massive spoilers]

@BW: I'm sorry to say this, but I think you seriously screwed up. @the folks who think that expressing a dissatisfied opinion is "whining": JAM IT. I'm fully entitled to have and express my opinion, same as you. I probably shouldn't have read this post topic, as I estimate only being somewhere betwe...

Re: Improving custom portrait support?

Please don't take this as too much of a flame, but I wanted to be clear here that it's not a "nice to have" feature. It's actually the proper POSIX method for developing.. --self-snip--- @xolotl - It was never my intention to start a flame war, particularly over what I agree is an incredibly minor ...

Re: Improving custom portrait support?

Heh, of course I assume that unless each person on the system bought Book 2 themselves, you're looking at something of a license violation there. :) :? Um, just to be pedantic, no I'm not looking at anything of the sort. I paid for one copy to install on a single machine--which is exactly what I've...

Re: Improving custom portrait support?

@ BW: I second this motion, for the following reason: If the admin (root) on a Linux box installs the game in a globally accessible place for all users on the box, (say, /usr/games/bin) it simply isn't possible for all individual users on that box to play the game with individualized portraits--user...

Re: Question about torch "Flash Attack"

Unless you're having a bug, lighting your torch in Book II definitely takes me a round...*snip*... Um, OK. I was more than a little bit puzzled by this statement, and went back and checked both Book1 and Book2. And I found the loophole. Lighting/extinguishing the torch DOES NOT take a time/round if...

Question about torch "Flash Attack"

Ok folks, this may be just a gameplay balance question, and it may have been addressed elsewhere for Book1 or Book2, but I sure couldn't find anything searching the forums. Basically, the situation is this (works in Book 1 or Book 2 under Linux.. haven't tried other versions): - aggravate some enemi...

Re: Puzzle Designing

The answer to my puzzle is 8605. Start on the number 5711 and follow the arrow directions. If you start on another number, you'll end up heading in a direction that doesn't contain a number. Hmm. Not sure what you mean by the 1000 remark... http://img375.imageshack.us/img375/6298/combinationwindow....

[solved]Quest Journal Segfault/Crash

OK folks, I've found a pretty ugly crash bug on Linux. Um, no I haven't. What I have figured out is that I should not fiddle with my machine when I've been awake for 26 hours. I unpacked the 1.03B version of the ELF, and then copied it to the wrong folder on my machine. :roll: (Crawling off to my c...

Re: How to keep aspect ratio in full screen mode in ubuntu 1

I am not using Ubuntu, so I can't vouch that this will work. But here is what I do on my Gentoo laptop w/ nVidia graphics: There is a program called 'nvidia-settings' that is partnered with the proprietary Nvidia graphics drivers. (There is likely a similarly named packaged under the Ubuntu package ...

Re: Single CPU core at 100% = slowness and gliding effect

Running with Intel Core-2 duo CPU here, no problems. The game is a little heavy on one core (appears that it isn't multi-threading), but it's certainly not pegging at 100%. I'm also actually running the game perfectly smoothly with the CPU force-clocked down to minimum speed of 800Mhz... Are you usi...

1.03b working great on Gentoo 2.6.31 + nVidia

@BasiliskWrangler -- THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING LINUX! The game is incredible so far, and I can't wait to get my grubby paws on my DVD when you ship them out next week. For anyone who might be hesitating about buying the game, I can confirm that it works very smoothly with the following configuration:...
