Re: Waterfall Ambiguity

Er, no. Not what I meant. The death is totally expected and enjoyable. The confusing thing is that this animation is very much like the non-interactive death from walking down the slope. And there's no narrator saying "This maneuver's gonna be tricky. Better grab hold of something," or some such to ...

Re: Various Typos

"the distribution of our brain cells was not exactly homologous" Since I was pedantically citing the dictionary anyway... Homologous I originally thought you might've meant distribution of neurons between heads in a balance, more-for-one, sort of way. (for which commensurate would have been more app...

Various Typos

In the Store, looking at the cigarettes... "Even then, the cigarettes still sell." The tense is mixed. Either "Even so" or "still sold" will fix it. ... In Never's office, when looking at the dresser picture... "It's a autographed picture of those guys from the iPod commercial." Should be "an". ... ...

Re: VirtualReality Bug

How exactly would you know for certain you're looking for something within FB before seeing the photos in the program? By LOOKing at the icon... "The FaceBurn program keeps track of all the security clearances in the fortress by using a facial recognition system. Just drop in a photo and they're go...

Re: Interface Feedback

Edit: After a facepalm, I've rewritten the following post. Someone made an AGS Editor plugin that exports every room to xml and pngs. There's chatter about code tweaks to include hotspot info if you can recompile it. Then again that thread was a couple years ago, so something like it might be stock...

Dropping the Photo onto FaceBurn's desktop icon has no effect.
You have to drop the Photo onto Security Viewer's desktop icon!?

Looks like testers got used to bringing up the FaceBurn window first and dropping the Photo there.

Waterfall Ambiguity

you deploy the Penguin, which will soon get you killed. This looks similar to the walking death animation. Without a narrator cue or something, players who see the ladder won't recognize they still have a functioning HAND to grab it. And in the message after climbing up: "You climb up the manhole c...

Re: Initial Graphics Config

If I set it to Direct3D, it forces fullscreen.
DirectDraw honors windowed for me.

Initial Graphics Config

After installation, the default setup is fullscreen+Direct3D.
Anyone whose monitor doesn't support the game's resolution gets an error.

Windowed+DirectDraw should run on any system without issues, so that would be a safer default.

This seems like something that's subtly irksome so most people would neglect to report it... The region one has to move the mouse into to make the icon bar appear feels disproportionately slim compared to the rather large bar. I think shrinking the icons to the dimensions of the inventory buttons (d...
