  1. I just had to change the resolution setting to get the icon to appear in the key mappings. Afterwords i could change the resolution back to max and the toggle setting was still there. Seems like a bug.
  2. How on earth do you get the bird's egg but are having trouble with getting the fruit? Explore man!
  3. The stool conversation just hit my funny bone the right way, and it went on far longer than I thought it would so that just added to it I think. The dialogue was great pretty much the entire way through and I enjoyed some of the darker undertones. The boss fight at the end of Vella's story didnt do it for me; and yes the death scene of the monster felt very low quality compared to the rest of the game.
  4. I would also recommend playing it. It would really ruin it if you somehow got spoiled waiting on Act 2.
  5. @enigma yeah I can understand. Its easy to say 'just relax' but when its your point that you do actually care about that you don't feel is getting across it can indeed be frustrating.
  6. Ok, then tell me HOW I get to install my game in the following situation: I have my Windows PC I use for gaming, which doesn't have any sort Internet connection. I have another PC with Linux I use to go online. I can move any amount of Data between those two, through an external drive/disc. How would I get my Steam-Game onto my Windows PC? (If the answer is that I need to go online with it or that I need another Windows PC for it or any kind of Shenanigans for making that work - then YES, Steam is DRM). Alone the fact that I need Steam at one point to install the game means it is DRM. It is not only a distribution tool to get the files I need to make it work. Sorry for that "every Person that matters" - I don't want to disrespect you, but when even the Developer of the game itself (aka Double Fine) says that the DRM-free version is not the Steam version, why do I have to argue on that point? I'm just sick of seeing that argument distracting from the problem that is going on. @enigma: I would like that. But then people keep arguing why I have personal trouble with Steam etc... No disrespect taken; I understand getting a bit heated on message boards especially when you can really only try to interpret other peoples intents. I think we are on semantics here. I don't consider requiring steam as DRM because you can install steam and the game on as many machines as you want and play it wherever you want, and steam has explicit offline modes and drm free titles. But likewise, for titles that take advantage of steam cloud, achievements, etc they can require you to log in (i.e. DRM) to be able to access these weather you want to or not. A lot of it really is on the developer and how they want to handle it.
  7. @enigma Take it easy man, no need to actually get worked up over this stuff. No ill-will for you here; We clearly all want DF and the game to succeed here and have our own visions for what that entails.
  8. This is false. Steam is a distribution service. It has the option for developers to include Steamworks, which is DRM. There is no indication DF is using this. I don't see complaints about requiring an OS, Direct X, or video card drivers to play the game. Are these DRM as well? You get the beta on steam as promised. You get the full game DRM free as promised. Now in addition, non backers can get Act 1, when complete, via the steam distribution platform and DF is going to use these funds to help complete the entirety of the game. I understand concerns about spoilers in the documentary, which honestly is the only valid complaint ive seen in all of the misinformed and rambling posts that have infected these forums recently. See that - every person that matters says that Steam is DRM. Their ToS does state that you only own subscription rights to the game. Each developer on KS seems to agree that a DRM-free version is a different version than the Steam version, yet people are trying to turn this topic into a Steam vs. non-Steam battle by insisting Steam isn't DRM. Only because you can circumvent any given type of DRM (which I believe is possible for >95% of all DRM systems in use), doesn't mean it isn't DRM. Only because you don't think something is DRM because of X, doesn't mean it isn't DRM. Only because something isn't the most annoying type of DRM, doesn't mean it isn't DRM. Only because it doesn't trouble you, doesn't mean it isn't DRM. Can you please cite where you see that 'every person that matters' says that Steam is DRM? Are people actually arguing because you can get around DRM or that its not imposing that its not actually DRM? I've not seen these posts. Only because you think something is DRM because of X, doesn't mean it is DRM. Only because people you think matter think something is DRM, doesn't mean it is DRM. You may want to read the ToS/EULA of most computer software. Stating that you only own subscription rights doesn't make what you're installing DRM. Can you provide an example of a steam game that does not use steamworks that you cannot play without steam? Or that steam prohibits you from starting without it?
  9. Well, you did respond to a point that has been clarified, pointed out the "full game" thing that has been explained, made a joke, and finished with blanket-calling the posts "misinformed" and "rambling". I'm just asking. Actually, the quote I responded to directly was responded to once, and it wasn't to clarify the DRM inconsistency; so no, it wasn't clarified. I also see multiple posts in this thread that re-state information, yet I don't see you slapping their wrists. You can call it a joke, but it wasn't. Those programs are just as much DRM as steam is. I also did not blanket call the posts anything. I made a comment about all of the misinformed and rambling posts that I've seen, I did not call all posts misinformed and rambling. The real question here is: Why you've now responded twice, misunderstanding what you're responding to, and more importantly, breaking your own cardinal rule about contributing nothing in the process?
  10. They also mentioned it on their twitter about 17 hours ago that it was lifted and linked the PC gamer review.
  11. Interesting I also do not see the soundtrack download on humble, but the files are there in my steam folder.
  12. Is this a serious question? Re-read this thread; there is very little worthwhile here considering very few people who are averse to installing steam actually understand what DRM is and what steam is. I simply tried to explain it in a way that would make it easily understandable to myself. I will shoot you a draft of any of my future posts though, for a yay/nay on if they are worthwhile or not.
