Season 1 and Screen Resolutions

posted by Ridah on - last edited - Viewed by 762 users

I have just purchased the complete season 1 on steam and have one question about the screen resolutions. There is no support for widescreen gamers. I have a 24" wide screen monitor, this game does not offer any wide screen resolutions so I am stuck playing this game in 1024*768 in windowed mode. Are there any plans to offer wide screen resolutions, or is there a command line switch I can use?

    I know, and it really is a minor issue. But since the new versions already dropped backwards-compatibility with the old ones, this seems like a small thing to add. Especially since, with the full season out, new customers are more likely to buy the package rather than individual episodes.

    Understandable, but as the code for storing preferences in the registry is already there (Season 2) and it's a once-per-game change (not like widescreen support which would require every single camera angle to be checked manually), it's still a shame ;)

  • It may happen someday, but don't hold your breath. In an ideal world we would have plenty of time to just move the exact Season Two options screen and everything that goes with it into Season One, but there isn't enough time in the day to do everything you want to do!

    if only our office time machine held more than three people in it at a time, we would totally go back and make that quick change. there would probably be some high fives exchanged :)

    I'm not complaining! I've done enough beta testing and such to know that it's not feasible to implement every feature request. But I figure a bit of feedback or constructive criticism can never hurt :)

  • does it go to 640x480? my computer is from 1600 b.c.

  • That's probably not going to be good enough, but if you want to give it a try, you can download episode 104 for free! Then, if it doesn't work, you're not out any money, just time and heartbreak. 'Til you get a computer from this millennium, anyway.

    EDIT: Actually, I take that back. I don't see the option to buy individual episodes anymore, which means you can't get 104 by itself for free, either. I suggest waiting 'til you someday have access to a nicer computer.

    EDIT AGAIN: OK, they just make it hard to find. Try at http://www.telltalegames.com/samandmax/lincolnmustdie.
