    [​IMG] Just got the game, and I'm wondering...where is the option to change the game's frikkin resolution?! I can't find the bugger, and I certainly don't enjoy putting up with 640!

    Probably so... A very detailed game for the resolution provided, yes.

    Sure, it'd be nice if you could up it to at least 800x600, but it doesn't make the game any less enjoyable. Not for me anyway. Keep in mind that Torment is what, 3 years (?) old now, and 640x480 was still an acceptable resolution back then.

    In nine days (Dec 3) Torment will have gone gold three years ago.

    You can run the game in a window, makes everything smaller and easier on the eyes, especially if you have a 17'+ monitor.

    Torment came out in 2000?!?!?!?

    Heck. I thought it came out a couple of months after BG1. I thought it was 5 years old.

    That "demo" movie in BG1, for PsT, was awesome kind of cool, too. With the Lady hovering in, and that heard of creatures trampling across the plane, and the far away shot of the Fortress. That movie was pretty much the reason why I started playing the game.

    And I think Jennifer Hale is the reason why I kept playing. ;)

    I've seriously considered ripping it, and seeing if Tal cared to post it. I forget how big it is; it's like a 90 second movie, so figure upwards of 20 meg.

    I think it's linked to in Torment/Misc.

    No, the last month of 1999.
