Help Required


(Neo) #1

So I just downloaded the game, and it seems like the format is not working with my computer. I can’t see a third of the game on the right side and a quarter of it on the bottom. It is almost like the video resolution is wrong but I checked and it should be right.
Can someone help?

Have you tried all the resolution options, or played the game with fullscreen off?

I’ve tried other resolution settings(went through all the standard ones) and I’m ashamed that I Don’t know how to turn off fullscreen (or how to properly exit the game as I am missing a lot of the menus due to the screen issue). I’ve tried “F11” which usually works with most programs but it just opens a text menu of sorts. I think it might be like a Console commands thing.

You have to reinstall the game so the Ogre menu re-appears. Then, one of the settings after selecting “OpenGL” in the 1st combo box is called “Full-Screen”. It’s the fact that Thrive doesn’t have an option menu yet, so this is the only way to actually do it. The game can be reinstalled easily in 3 ways:

a. Official Thrive Launcher: Delete the files so the launcher will have to re-download them.
b. dThriveLauncher: Re-Click the “Download” button.
c. Re-download the separate zip file from the website and re-extract (or just extract if you have the zip already downloaded)

Basically, here’s where you find it:

Actually you can find Ogre.cfg in thrive/bin next to thrive.exe (with the launcher it is in launcher/installed/thriveVERSION/thrive-VERSION/bin) and by deleting that you get the settings dialog pop up again on next launch.

I’ve explained this recently way too many times…

You should make a thread explaining how to do this and announce it. That way any one can direct someone in a similar predicament to that thread.
