Outcast

When I play outcast, the resolution won't get any larger than 512x328.  What's the problem?

No Problem ...

See http://www.gamesdomain.com/gdreview/zones/reviews/pc/oct99/outcast.html

Most FPS fans probably noticed at the top of this review that the maximum resolution for the game is a lowly 512x384 runs in software mode. I can hear you all out there yelling right now "what do you mean I can't use my new kick-ass video card with a gazillion MB's of VRAM with my resolution set to 1280x1024?!" Remember at the beginning that I also mentioned that the game had been in development for four years? At that time 3D video cards weren't as common place as they are today and the designers of Outcast opted to go with voxels as opposed to polygons. Voxels have been used before with the most recent title coming to mind being Blade Runner. They are great for large outdoor environments. Wonderful lighting effects such as dynamic light sourcing and lens flare work exceedingly well with voxels and are used liberally throughout Outcast. Also, voxels tend to have a much higher FPS count then polygons. The downside is that voxels also tend to look a lot more blocky then polygons.

Cheers,

T.

What OS or Browser are you using?  I was able to get the liks with no problem what so ever.  You may need to lower the security settings, or look at your Browser options.

I might add that they are also very good links.

Thank you,

Ps. If you are using IE 5.5 SP1 or less, you need to upgrade.  IE 6.0 is working very good.

Are you simply asking for more help, such as cracks? That is not the type of help we offer.  If the links are not working, then type the URL in to address box and see if that helps.

If so, we need to bring the question to a close.
