What works

- playing the whole game through - videos - sound and text - inventory - window mode - in short: everything works that's not listed below as not working ;)

What does not

- fullscreen mode (didn't try the xconf-solution as I already finished the game before learning about this potential fix) - main menu is usable but it does flicker a bit on my system


What was not tested

Additional Comments

As the full-screen-problem can be fixed and doesn't appear on all systems and seing that everything else works flawlessly OOTB I think a Platinum rating is justifyable. Have fun with the game!

HowTo / Notes

Vertical Shifted

Some users reported, that they have vertical shifted and stretched graphics in fullscreen mode.
In the broken sword forum a screen and monitor configuration for xorg was posted which solves this problem.

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "Monitor Model"
Modeline "800x600_60.00" 38.22 800 832 912 1024 600 601 604 622 -HSync +Vsync

Section "Screen"

Device "Card0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
SubSection "Display"
Modes "1400x1050" "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600_60.00"
Depth 24

add or replace this in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf
