Wasteland inXile's Wasteland 1 Re-Release

Discussion in 'General RPG Discussion' started by Infinitron, Aug 9, 2013.

  1. So what would you guys recommend to a casualfag like myself, who loves RPGs of the Fallout era but hasn't played any older RPGs except Daggerfall and Krondor?

    I have Wasteland installed on my PC and I'm about to play it.

    Wizardry VII: Crusaders of the Dark Savant, Might and Magic: World of Xeen, Ultima VII, Lands of Lore: The Throne of Chaos, Dark Sun: Shattered Lands.... any of these will do nicely, and they aged well enough.

  3. In terms of Wasteland, though. I'm guessing it's a game that I need to RTFM first.

    I don't think the game is particularly hard, but the interface has aged poorly. It was already archaic by the mid-90s, let alone today.

    Make sure your game is up-to-date (particularly important for Steam Mac installs on older OS).

    Second step is always to update monitor and video drivers. I had to update my monitor drivers to play.

    Third step is reviewing the list of known issues on the inXile Wasteland 1 boards.

    Anyone who follows the known issues and solutions and has updated drivers and is still having trouble should contact inXile support and you'll quickly be taken care.

    Do include as much hardware, OS platform/ environment information as you can in your support request; including a DxDiag if your issue is graphics or video related.

  6. Biggest issue I've run into so far is the mouse being nearly completely unuseable.

    I guess I just need to use the keyboard like the good old days.

    An update was released that adds an "Extras" subdirectory in the game's main directory.

    All the manuals and stuff are now available.

    Here are all the oldschool portraits, in animated GIF format.

    And here are all the new high res portraits, sadly unanimated.

    You've also got the game's soundtrack in uncompressed WAV format.

    And some complimentary Wasteland 2 wallpapers.

    Use keyboard, don't use mouse. Check out macros, you may need one for resting.

    What's the problem? The common, or the SteamApps? :smug:

    Most of the new portraits are indeed surprisingly good, even if unanimated. I like both the new version and the original one.

    One problem is that the GOG version has mouse problems in the unsmoothed version with original portraits. For some reasons, it does not always recognize clicks, so you have to click several times.

    I wish the inxile version supported custom resolutions right off the bat.
