Met up with Mindx2 at PAX. I didn't fist him, much to everyone's disappointment.


But he was wearing the coolest hat in the place. It was great to meet up with you, man - thanks for taking the time. I'll be sending you an email when I get home with all that stuff we talked about.

Question: Is Roehm to Ruin a prequel (it sounds like it it) such that stats won't carry over?

Yes - Roehm to Ruin is a prequel - in that it takes place the exact night that Roehm ends up in the Baron's Castle (from QFI's prologue). It's a small adventure game that gives some backstory to QFI.

Yeah - it's a short adventure - there's sneaking and stealing, but the game is so short there's no real stat building or grinding. It takes place over the course of one night. It'll be a short little adventure probably sold for something like $4.99

A quick question to Blackthorne : Am I assuming right that the game is really meant to be played in windowed mode, in a resolution around 640x480 -980x720 (or somethin like that)? It seems to me that every art in the game was done in 320x240 resolution, and the game upscales it to the desired resolution. In fullscreen, this looks very stretched, which while has its charm, using a lower res and playing it windowed looks better. Do you also recommend playing it like that?

If you run winsetup.exe, which will be in the same directory as the game, you can do various things to make sure the resolution doesn't stretch (like adding black columns to the sides).

MRY is right - though full screen it should be pillarboxed to allow for the proper res. Some people's video cards auto stretch 4:3 images to 16:9. Try using the setup utility and check to make sure your graphics card doesn't stretch 4:3 fullscreen images.

Sigh, I put down QFI for the 3rd time. The game is great, for those who like these RPG-adventure hybrids. The problem is definitely with me. I tried to play it for the 3rd time, progressing further at each try, but in the end it somehow doesn't click with me. I like adventure games in themselves, and RPGs in themselves, but this mix is not my style it seems. :)

I feel bad because I got the GOG key as a gift from Bt. Sorry buddy, I failed you. :(

Not everybody is gonna like everything, but you gave it an honest try. That's all anyone can ask.

You know, like buttsex. Darth Roxor likes it with his Dad, but not everyone does. That's just how life goes sometimes.

Could you make it possible to import the char to basically combine both games?

Well, Morkar - Roehm to Ruin takes place the night of the intro you see in QFI. This is before you even class (or more specifically, subclass - as Roehm is basically a thief sub-classing as a rogue, brigand or sorcerer in QFI) - and you lose all your possessions in the process of escaping, so there's nothing really to import.

This is just a short little game that extends out the intro, gives a little backstory to Roehm, and for some - may give insight into things to come later.

No problem if it's only one night and you lose ALL posessions anyway. I just thought it would have been a good Xtended Version of sorts.
