[19:19:17] <woland88> hello
[19:19:23] <wjp> hi
[19:19:37] <woland88> i've installed exult and have everything running, playing u7 bg&si for the first time
[19:20:05] <wjp> cool
[19:20:06] <woland88> i read the warning about the resolution in the readme though and now i'm worried if i broke my save game by running at higher res
[19:21:02] <wjp> which resolution did you run at?
[19:21:04] <woland88> do you know if i should switch to default res or is it only in certain spots that i risk a "plot bug"
[19:21:13] <woland88> 512x something
[19:21:19] <woland88> windowed
[19:21:33] <wjp> hm, it's a tricky issue
[19:21:40] <woland88> i tried 800x600 at first
[19:22:03] <wjp> in SI it's a much more sensitive issue than in BG
[19:22:33] <woland88> from what i understand, it might trigger some plot action prematurely?
[19:22:42] <wjp> yes, things like that
[19:22:57] <wjp> or it might not allow you to walk far enough away from something to reset some trigger
[19:23:11] <woland88> ouch
[19:23:23] <woland88> ok i've only gotten to the part where i got my magic carpet
[19:23:30] <woland88> and talked to lord british
[19:23:45] <wjp> if you haven't noticed anything, it's _probably_ fine right now
[19:23:49] <woland88> ok
[19:24:07] <woland88> and i flew to the black rock guy and back to town...
[19:24:16] <woland88> so now if i switch to the default res, i should be ok right?
[19:24:21] <wjp> yes, most likely
[19:24:39] <woland88> i mean for future gameplay, that is if my current save game is ok
[19:24:46] * wjp nods
[19:24:48] <woland88> ok cool
[19:24:52] <woland88> thanks a lot
[19:25:02] <wjp> enjoy the games :-)
[19:25:16] <woland88> i knew it was a good idea to ask before i keep playing....it looks REALLY good in 512 :(
[19:25:21] <woland88> oh well
[19:25:23] <woland88> :)
[19:25:25] <woland88> thanks
[19:25:45] <wjp> I wonder if anybody ever tried the entire game at a high res
[19:26:09] <wjp> it just might be that BG runs fine with it, but it's hard to be sure
[19:26:12] <woland88> yep, or perhaps make a list with trouble spots so people can switch back to low res
[19:26:34] <woland88> yeah i'd rather not risk it, especially since it's my 1st game
[19:26:52] <woland88> when i finish, i just might do that
[19:27:06] <wjp> if you do, please let us know what happens
[19:27:19] * woland88 nods
[19:27:26] <woland88> great job guys!
[19:27:33] <woland88> always wanted to play these!
[19:28:36] <woland88> oh one last thing
[19:28:53] <woland88> it's ok if i run it 2x scaled and at default resolution, correct?
[19:30:04] <wjp> yes, definitely
[19:30:12] <woland88> ok great
[19:30:20] <woland88> thanks for your help
[19:31:05] <wjp> no problem
[19:34:50] <woland88> oh and does it matter what fps i run the game at or is there a "default" as well?
[19:35:09] <wjp> 10 is default I think
[19:35:22] <wjp> I'm not sure of the effect that has, to be honest
[19:35:43] <woland88> the town people start moving a bit too fast
[19:35:58] <woland88> 6 seems most ok
[19:36:14] <woland88> it doesn't truly matter to me, as long as it won't break the plot or something like that
