    Yes, that is a limitation. If an LCD screen is tasked with displaying a low-res image at a scaled-up resolution that doesn't fit neatly into a pixel grid—essentially calling for "fractions of a pixel"—then it will be resampled blurrily to fit, even if the overall proportions are 1:1. This can be worked around however by ensuring that the game is displayed exactly 1:1 and only scaled by factors of exactly 2, although with 640 x 400 that will mean having a 1280 x 800 image in the center of a black field on your screen. It'll be on the small side, but it will be very sharp.

    However, that's nothing to do with "zooming in" per se, which is why I was rather confused. I thought you meant zooming in in-game. You're talking about upscaling.

    Yeah, upscaling. Sorry for the confusion.

    There is nothing about pizza there, but how really could I be suspicious about flashing neon arrows? This is a much desired feature nowadays, making it into a new edition of an older game seems like something suits and marketing guys would be enthusiastic about.
    "Necessary modernization to fit a modern player needs. Only the outdated 1999 technology prohibited making flashing neon arrows into the game, we are bringing the game back to the original vision. "

    They aren't talented enough to implement cut content according to most, so why would that be welcomed? Shit I would love it, but I would not trust them to have the same tone, or skill to do it justice. So instead of adding trannies or hackish cut content we get minor upgrades and a bundled old edition with the newfangled one. Does it matter much for those monocled enough to complain? Principal I guess? Seems like a form of the ownership effect where people don't like others playing a different experience of their favorite game. I know of people that want to play the game but cant get the shit to run. Granted some of the changes are shit. Ideally there would be options for some of it.

    You disgust me. :edgy:

    Both as a human being and as somebody who clearly cannot read. I dislike you, I dislike your parents and I dislike every cock you've ever sucked. Guilt by association.

    Some regions doesn't have to pay a full price, you know.
    So i think i will give it a try since i definitely got an itch to play PT - after browsing that TToN Fiasco thread for so long.

    Yes, let's support the company that is incompetent at upscaling the game and overhauling the UI properly (ostensibly the primary reason for doing an Enhanced Edition, but in reality their primary goal is to sell the games on mobile devices), forces GOG to remove the classic PC versions, introduces new bugs, and shoehorns in Tumblr-tier social activism and sub-fanfiction-tier "extra content" and characters.

    What a great idea.

    Let me be clear: If you support Beamdog in any way, you are an agent of the decline, full stop. Forcing GOG to take down the classic versions is, by itself, enough reason to boycott this shit.

    Agree with everything you said. You still can't play the enhanced editions of baldurs gate in an Intel card because beamdog is fucking useless, lots of people with laptops sporting such hardware... But hey... You can play them on your phone.

    Well, I used to buy their games from their site for a full price. And after SoD fuck-up - regional prices, which for PT:EE is 1/3 only, is my choice. I never suggested to boycott them completely but to put their releases under scrutiny. But i see your point.

    I've played the EEs on two different Macbooks with Intel cards. Works fine. Is this a Windows-specific issue?

    So I get to buy it twice. Nice one, Beamdog. Actually, three times including my original boxed copy. :obviously: I just touched it to re-purify myself.

    Actually, I still may buy it. :argh:

    Fucking disgusting vulture of a game studio feeding of the corpses of someone else's work.

    What a disgrace this company is, this shit makes my fucking blood boil. Shameful.
