Hi all,

I suppose several people have stumbled over those two issues.

Can anybody help?

Is it possible to have a better solution, gamewise there is not, but graphics is what I would want, e.g. 800x600?

Is it possible to run UFO, etc. on faster machines without running a slowdown programme?

Kind regards,
Swordmaster  :confused:

It's fixed....

You can run it, but it'll run very fast... if your version is the DOS one... the Collectors Edition solves that problem.
Resistance is NEVER futile...

Have a look at the following giant screenshot I pieced together that I keep flogging about whenever anyone asks about getting the game in a better resolution:

That's how the game would look in your current resolution.  

Granted, 640x480 probably would have been quite nice.

HoHo NKF!

I am running 1280x1024, so the whole map fits on my screen! Yech!!
About 95% of people are kidding themselves. The trouble is that almost all of that 95%, by their nature, belive that they are in the other 5%. Ironically most of the 5% are worried that they may be in the 95%.

Thanks, folks!

Here comes my prayer: :angel:
Please great Gollop give us a patch for a better resolution. I play UFO again just now and did before umtieth times, having a better resolution would be marvelous.

What I forgot to say...

NKF, the "über"-screenshot is great. That is how I would love to see the game, with fog of war naturally.
