Can we have another Gemini Rue thread?

So I finally played Gemini Rue - there didn’t seem to be a thread in it over the last few weeks, that I could find, so I thought I’d start a new one - and though I finished it in one sitting (COULD NOT STOP PLAYING), this is one of the best adventures I’ve played in a long time.

And not because it’s a tried and true classic 2D point and click, but because everything about it was just amazing! The atmosphere in both the music and the locations was great, the graphics were great, I thought the voice acting was brilliant, the story was great.

I don’t know if it was the creators intention, but I felt like I was playing Beneath a Steel Sky.

The only thing I didn’t like, was Sayuri’s little speech at the very end of the game seemed a little cheesy, but that is a very minor complaint; on the whole this was an amazing game.

Any other fans? And, if you haven’t played it, you definitely should!

There was a huge thread in the old forum.

I LOVED this game.

You should spoiler tag the part about Sayuri’s speech Smile

By the way, anyone know

What happened to the facility in the one year after Delta 7’s escape? When you return the place is full of dead bodies, and is in decay, but its never explained how or why

Quick question. I have the game on Steam and started it up recently, but it displays letterboxed even on a widescreen monitor (so it’s double-plus wide). Should it be filling the whole screen on a widescreen monitor (I think it’s 1920x1200, I’ll check if necessary) or is it intended to still be letterboxed?

I’ve got someway through Gemini Rouge - it really grabbed me but I’ve got to a standstill because I can’t get past the shooting tests. I’ll get back and have lots of other goes but having lots of other goes for me interrupts the flow of the story & then I get bored!

Hmm… Gemini Rouge… Great game. Nerd

Oh wait, that was Riana Rouge. Sorry folks, nothing to see here, go back to your conversation. Tongue

I played it on 1920x1080 and it filled the screen.

If it filled the screen, it was stretched. AGS engine games cannot support widescreen resolutions, it’s a limitation of the engine.

Hmm…so AGS games are supposed to display in 4:3? I have no problem with that if so, but how do I get to display that way?

You need to tell your graphics card to preserve the aspect ratio when stretching graphics. For ATI cards, there’s a trick to access the option. I don’t know where the option is for nvidia cards, but I’m sure it exists.

For NVIDIA cards there’s an option for that in the NVIDIA control panel.
