Requests

I expect you guys hate looking at topics like these but I thought I would make my requets for this project...

Firstly, I know it is still getting rid of bugs and stuff but I do have a couple of features I would like to see...

(31/05/03) WIN32 Requests:
Dos Promt as Console - not good, it should be hidden and could be bought up in game like games like quake have.
Full Screen - I know it has been coded at that size which I suppose is ok, but maybe it could just be stretched? Otherwise just blacken out the rest and have the stuff in the middle. Stuff in the background can put you off sometimes.
Smoother on older specs - I doubt you guys will be able to do this since the coding side has been done but. Would at some stage things be able to be changed a bit so it will run smoother on older pc's? A game like this should not require a high up speced pc and it will not work on my old pc.

*** I will edit this post when I think of new requests ***

P.S. Feel free to add your requests here and comment on them. (Unless a mod disagrees)

It's one way to debug the game. I'm quite certain that it will be removed/hidden to the final 1.0 release.

Maybe you should read the manual.txt for command line parameters how to change the resolution (smoothing + "stretch").

Disable the smoothing, etc. It should run on older pc. Though, depends how old yours is. If it's very old, I'd suggest you just play the original DOS version..

its 450mhz, 64mb ram, geeforce 2 mx. Not the best PC because its my old and spare one (my new one is being fixed).

It can run games like half-life though im sure it should be able to run something like this better then its performing right now.

*** LATER ***

Thanks for telling me about the manual:
-f -o -c works perfectly Smiley
