I just don't see the need, it's all there in the manual.

 

If it really bother you so much you can always tell them to add it, maybe they will. Just bitching about it here won't help any of your hypothetical people.

That's not too hard, is it?

No, if you know that you can do that. When did convenience suddenly became a bad thing?

Alt+enter is a well-known windows function for switching between fullscreen and windowed. It's not a GOG thing, it's not a DosBox thing. They can be forgiven for not mentioning it.

 

But if you care, you should notify them so they can update their support information. They can't read your mind.

I think it's also in the DOSBox readme that alt+enter switches between fullscreen and windowed mode.

Real men don't read readme nor manuals!!! :lol:

I could argue about alt+enter being well-known amongst the masses, but that's not the point. Yes, you can switch to windowed by alt+enter but you can't change the size of the window that way. 640x480 or smaller is quite small on modern displays and to change that you need to stab the .conf file.

 

I knew how to do that and so do many others who have used dosbox before, but how do you expect the avarage joe to fiqure out how to do that? By finding the dosbox readme? The world is full of people who try to find the any button when some prog asks them to push it! I'm not on some hate campaing against GOG or dosbox, I was just wondering where the practicality is. Thats all :)

You could argue that the average Joe shouldn't be using DosBox unless he/she knows how to manually assign Irq and DMA# as well as Vesa and Glide drivers :)

 

It would be nice if installers asked a few questions in an install wizard like manner and generated the lines in the .conf file. My own favourite is

 

fullscreen=true

fulldouble=false

fullresolution=original

windowresolution=original

output=ddraw

 

Especially output has given a lot of headache because it defaults to "surface"

Just Arcanum, Gabriel Knight, Sanitarium, Psychonauts and The Longest Journey. Already have physical copies of BG&E, Fallouts and Gothics. Looking at Giants: Citizen Kabuto, though I have no idea what that's about.

;) Unfortunately I have never actually played these games! But I've been told they're good, and they got good ratings, so at the price they were on GOG it seemed a steal.

Gorky 17 (Odium) is intresting. Its combats are more of a TBS puzzles and the storry is really weird.

Septerra Core plays like a normal JRPG but its story is actually more robust than your regular Jpop i mean Jrpgs despite the end of the world, big bad and such cliches.

Original War is a weird rts. Your main and most important resource is your Troopers. You build up prefabric settlements using randomly teleported, pre packaged supply packages. The missions range from your normal RTS fare to managing a base (and its defences) with just 2 troopers. (Every building and vehicle needs troopers to operate.)

Advent Rising, action game with a semi intresting story about the fall of mankind. Planned as first of a triology but it flopped and the series were scrapped.

Hostile Waters is a mix of RTS and Action game using your created units in TPS Camera. So So but enjoyable story / mission progression.

Sold.
Check out Armed & Dangerous if you get the chance.

I loved that the Big Bad had several (as in a lot of) plans in motion, some of which you managed to foil, some don't, and that the world changed as the story progressed.

Which is largely depending on whether the blue chick (Delphi?) is topless or not.

I played the first two.

 

Gorky 17 was a pretty mediocre game with some surprisingly good moments. Sometimes the whole horror atmosphere was spot on!

 

I never got far in Septerra Core. Didn't have the motivation.

I actually have still have my disc versions of both Odium(Gorky 17) and Septerra Core.

 

Odium was pretty interesting, but hellishly hard when I played it. Septerra Core was awesome, especially the crazy multi-layered planet setting it had. The dungeons did drag on(to say the least), but it was great back in the day.
