Vella exit path virtually hidden in full screen

Recommended Posts

This is not a crash but more of a usability complication. Full screen mode on Linux chops off a significant amount of space on the bottom.

This was not a problem through all of the Shay's game and only just popped up into Vella's as an issue.

In full screen:

In non-full screen:

The actual hit area for leaving via the path at the bottom (in bright green):

I am running Linux Mint 14 on a Lenovo W520 at 1920x1080. I made an attempt to upload the HTML from `lshw` as an attachment but was denied since it wasn't an image =/

Yeah, the game is cropped in full screen. I would personally prefer the option to have black bars on the sides as opposed to losing part of the image :(

Edit: I'm an idiot. There IS such an option. I'm still surprised the game wasn't made FOR widescreen...

I've found the same probl'm, it's hard to go out this area in full screen mode.

I'm using Windows 7, so it's not a linux version probl'm.

Turn on vertical letterbox in the options, you will get the full 4:3 framed image instead of the cropped 16:9 image. You will have black bars on the side, but you won't be missing any of the scene.

Kind of annoying they did it this way, but oh well!
