How do you guys put in screen shots? The ones that fit the page but then if you click on them it will make them the size they were originally?
post #352 of 1103
I've only played the game for about 3 total hours and it seems pretty good. One thing I don't like it the map. It isn't easy to read. The other thing that is questionable are the colors. The graphics are ok, but it seems kind of washed out looking. I wish it was a little more vibrant. One question though, is there a key or key binding you can do to do a quick save? I hate having to back out to the menu.

Take a screen shot and then upload it to a host like imageshack. Then embed the URL in the post with the image icon. This site will downsize the shot automatically.

F5 for a quick save, F9 for quick load.

Absolutely.

The map needs to put quest markers that tell you which direction to go on the edge of your mini map. It would be totally great to have the option of setting your own custom markers as well, like in Fallout 3.

Maybe it's just me, but my spatial orientation isn't that great when it comes to navigating locations like towns and dungeons. I have to consult my mini map way too frequently.

There will likely be a map mod. Or maybe I'll make one.

oh i do the same to make sure i've explored every corner of the place, plus i use the maps in the strategy guide
post #356 of 1103
Yeah maybe it just seems that way because I want to make sure I saw everything ;p

I make sure I mouse over seemingly innocuous books too just in case I can grab one.

Its payed off 2 or 3 times so far.

an easier way to do it is just hold down TAB half the time, it highlights all of the items that you can pick up or interact with.

do you have the Warden's Keep? If so, do that quest line and kill a certain abomination and you will get some SWEET armour from it.

you mean DLC? cause I don't have any right now.
I'm only lvl 7 tho, but that gold armor that king was wearing looked sick.

On a sidenote, the launcher soundtrack is great to
