I'm at 73%. Sigh. It's 1:44 a.m. Maybe I'll be done by 2:30?

Valdy is right - Full Screen doesn't work. On my 1920x1200 monitor, High Definition on and off gives me 1920x1080 (and the black bars top and bottom).

Well, I played the demo. I like this game better than the last so far, but I'm getting quite a lot of interference. By that I mean flickering, and black bars on things when I don't think they are supposed to have any. Maybe my pc doesn't like it? I've had this on other games, but never on an MCF game until now.

Had to take a small break in the game.
Download was kinda slow, but to be expected with so many DLing. Also a large file takes time too.

Playing now a little over an hour, and it is easy so far, but I am just getting started.

All I can really say is that with 13 Skulls BFG tried to make the game more immersive, with the interactive videos.

But in Shadow Lake I really feel like I am in a movie! The videos are seamless, well done and amazingly well blended into the graphics. Honestly, sometimes I don't know where the video ends and the graphics begin!

Gotta rest my eyes for a minute and eat, then back to the game.

Looks like you got a winnnnnnneeeerrrrrrrrr!!!!

Sas good luck with the d/l. I have to keep away from the forums from now on because I'm already seeing things I don't want to see on the forums home page like "stuck on______" and chapter titles I'm in WA but a regional city. May as well be in the bush at the rate the game is downloading. I'm on ADSL2 with our countries biggest network and my DH has kindly let me use his new monster gaming pc complete with 23" monitor. All this has me at 19%.

Well tomorrow is another day.... albeit a day at work. I think I'm starting to feel a little unwell actually *cough cough* I wish I could just "no show" but my work ethic is just too strong. Catch you all in the reviews/comments section when I'm done although knowing me I'll probably see you in the tips/help section sooner

Hi everybody!

Is there anybody left?
No?
Everone moved to the newest Forum?

Well, I'm back!
Had to read about 50 pages or more, but hey,
it was worth it!
Momo and Mandi, thanks for 'missing' me.

I'm a bit sad that I missed the busride,
but maybe we'll get to do something like that again next year.
Am no member, so I have to wait juuuust a little bit longer.

Is there a place where the 'speccies' can hangout after the spec- thread?
It's been really nice, funny and entertaining with all of you!

Rockingmum.

LOL, Nix. I remember a similar conversation you and I had this time last year with EFR. Mine is downloading right now. Just gone 11am in the UK and I'm only at 15%.

Just think how much fun you are going to have tonight. You may even start the game before I do, at this rate!

HAPPY GAMING EVERYONE!!!

Well, it really is here! Y'all got up way earlier than me, I just started my download and my second cup of coffee. Checked the forums and see different stickied threads for each chapter - cool!.... and... morphing objects! Yay!!! I'm happy about that. Will not read the forums, so I won't read spoilers.

Just wanted to say that I enjoyed the speculation thread this year. Y'all are amazing and so much smarter than I am at figuring out obscure clues. Happy Gaming everyone!

Oh, and.... Thank You Hondo!!!!! What a wonderful surprise when I got up this morning!!

Tiger, l really thought of getting a sudden bad cold but like mcf_square_eyes said
"my work ethic is just too strong". Sometimes l don´t like to be so honest. Really!

We're German, Nix. Honesty and a strong work ethic can never be in question!

And our weather fits, thick fog outside.
Downloading now (60%). No Try, just a Buy.

A big thanks to Hondo, what a surprise!

(note to myself: first read pms -> then buy a game)


Don't feel bad I did the same thing.

To everyone with the black bars and/or flashing:

I got both with EFR, and I found that pressing my screen's Auto Adjust button got rid of the black bars. As for the flashing, I have no idea.

Wow that was fast...although it could just be because I'm still waiting for my download to finish, should be in the next hour or so.
