    It reminds me a bit of what you get when vectorising a pixel-based picture.
    With some additional detailing work, probably.
    Still would look better with different coloring, though.

    The last two pages of this topic are why I love the codex.

    I think the thick black lines look weird. Wastelands black lines look thick because the pixels are larger. The portrait has much smaller pixels.

    The new music is kind of cool, if not a little jarring in contrast with the visuals. It would have been better if they added music that would have been more appropriate for a game of its era, not something that seems to be straight from WL2.

    Also, what part has voiceovers? I didn't hear anything when I screwed around for 10 minutes.

    Looking through the game's directories.

    Main directory. That OGG file is the game's background music.
    [​IMG]

    Portraits directory. Apparently you can add new ones.
    [​IMG]

    Some text I/O utilities used by the game's DOS-based main menu, I think.
    [​IMG]

    These are the game's data files, obviously.
    [​IMG]

    The famous unofficial Wasteland reset utility. Unfortunately, the original utility could not be recovered, or perhaps this one was just easier to work with.
    [​IMG]

    These OGGs are the VOs for all the game's paragraphs, which are now displayed in-game if you click an icon.

    Stabwound You'll get a voiced-over paragraph immediately upon entering the Ag Center.

    It would be interesting to see someone mod this and make an 8-bit version of the track that WL1C ships with.

    What's weird is that the voiceovers seem to include the red herring/fake entries in the booklet, and I don't see how they would have included them in the game. For example, 001.ogg is one that's never actually used in the game.

    Hmm... hmm... guess they've just done the whole paragraph book, don't think there's more to it than that.

    Don't you see? It's just another way to trap "cheaters" - this time, people who listen to all the voiceovers instead of people who read the entire paragraph book. :)

    Judging by the screens from GOG, some other updated portraits look more finished than the ranger.

    Yeah those new portraits in the GOG screenshots look actually quite nice. Now there is an even bigger contrast to the almost childish tile graphics. Still don't understand why they didn't update those. Hopefully those will be moddable now though it doesn't look like it.

    felipepepe has also had issues with freezing. But most people aren't having any issues at all. What's going on here?

    Yeah, game froze twice already once in the Highpool store, the other going after the dog.

    But I don't bother much with it, without the historical context it's impossible to understand what this game meant, but still I find it less compelling than other 1988 titles like Ultima V, M&M II, Pool of Radiance and Final Fantasy II. The setting is cool, but not that surprising in a time where we got Mad Max, The Day After Tomorrow and all that, and the whole "do you kill the dog?" think that Fargo always talks like it's the greatest RPG revolution of all time is honestly laughable today. Hell, one year later Hero's Quest got released, even then W1 should have looked simplistic.
