[12:48:22] <karfart> hello!
[12:49:13] <karfart> i just found this great program and i want to know is it possible to change resolution in ultima 8 pagan?
[12:49:19] <wjp> hi
[12:49:40] <karfart> i tried to change pentagram.ini file and screen is still same
[12:51:28] <karfart> how i should do that? wjp do you know?
[12:52:15] <wjp> how did you change pentagram.ini?
[12:53:55] <karfart> just changed scale x and scale y
[12:54:05] <karfart> 640x480
[12:54:45] <wjp> scalex=640, scaley=480?
[12:54:52] <wjp> on two separate lines?
[12:55:03] <karfart> yep
[12:55:19] <wjp> and that doesn't give you a higher resolution unscaled window?
[12:55:52] <wjp> (the window should stay the same size, but it should show more of the world)
[12:56:19] <karfart> nope it was the same
[12:56:52] <wjp> can you show me your full pentagram.ini file using http://pastebin.com/ ?
[12:57:47] <karfart> http://pastebin.com/Htr1EGRP
[12:59:17] <wjp> unrelated: tff isn't an option
[12:59:29] <wjp> but that config file should work fine
[12:59:58] <karfart> hmm wierd
[13:00:13] <karfart> can you send me your ini file and i change the path? :)
[13:00:22] <wjp> no
[13:00:28] <wjp> there's no point
[13:00:32] <wjp> your config file works fine for me
[13:00:32] <karfart> yea
[13:00:44] <karfart> hmhp
[13:00:55] <karfart> whats wrong with me :(
[13:01:17] <wjp> with the defaults: http://www.usecode.org/misc/320.png
[13:01:30] <wjp> with your config: http://www.usecode.org/misc/640.png
[13:02:40] <karfart> my looks like default still :/
[13:02:53] <wjp> then maybe you're editing the wrong file?
[13:03:20] <wjp> if you look at stdout.txt it should give some information about which config file it's using
[13:03:25] <karfart> lol guess what was the problem :)
[13:03:48] <karfart> "run as adminstrator" and now works
[13:03:50] <karfart> heh
[13:04:28] <karfart> looks nice now
[13:04:34] <karfart> cool and thanks to you :)
[13:04:44] <wjp> be warned that there are a few problematic areas if you play at this resolution
[13:05:18] <karfart> yea its quite small...
[13:05:23] <wjp> there are at least two places where you need to walk far enough away for something to be out of screen for a teleporter or trigger to reset
[13:05:32] <wjp> and at this resolution you can't get far enough away for that
[13:05:48] <karfart> what resolution you prefer?
[13:05:56] <wjp> the default :-)
[13:06:00] <karfart> :)
[13:06:21] <karfart> i just want little more bigger :p
[13:06:46] <wjp> it'll work fine almost everywhere, but you may need to scale back in two places
[13:07:29] <wjp> (in the center of the shrine of the ancient ones, and the obsidian fortress)
[13:10:41] <karfart> yea
[13:13:02] <karfart> first time i play this game :)
[13:14:17] <karfart> diablo looks like copy of this
[13:14:19] <karfart> ;)
[13:15:24] <karfart> i installed 7 and 8, which i should play first ?
[13:15:43] <karfart> what you prefer? :)
[13:18:20] <wjp> I like them both quite a lot
[13:18:46] <wjp> U7 has a more open, non-linear world, but U8 has a nice dark atmosphere
[13:31:23] <karfart> yep i will play them both :P

[14:11:23] <wjp> don't forget U7 part 2 :-)

[20:14:45] <wjp> why?
[20:18:36] <Lightkey> I thought you use that everywhere
[20:19:02] <wjp> gentoo at home, centos on laptop, debian on server, centos at work
[20:19:17] <wjp> so, no :-)
