icon Graphics question (0)  
So, I just bought Tendry's Tale, and I started the game, and Tendry looks... different. So do the keys, and the orbs, and the attack gems. Um, I'm sure the graphics are great and wonderful and...

You know what, I'm going to skip right to the question. Do I have to take a screenshot of the demo graphics, erase the floor around the edges, and work it into a usable file for a graphics mod,
or,
is there a way to just copy the Drod.ini file for the keys and gems and Tendry and such, straight from the demo into the full game, without screwing anything up?
Thanks.

Sorry, I don't quite understand what your question is. Would you please rephrase it?

I'm guessing that, if you just bought the game, you received version 1.1. I'm also guessing that your demo version was 1.0.x. If you're wondering why the graphics are different, then that's because your demo install is probably that older version. So, if you want the demo version to look like the full game, then just download the demo installer again from our website and reinstall it over the top of your existing demo version. Now it should be version 1.1 and look like the full version. Does that make sense?

I think lopsidation meant the opposite - i.e. he wants the old graphics from the demo back in the full version...

np: Tocotronic - Ich Habe Stimmen Gehört (Pure Vernunft Darf Niemals Siegen)

Hmm...okay. In order to add the older graphics to a 1.1 install, you would have to make your own mod (a .png and associated .tim file with the old graphics) and add it to the GeneralTiles entry in drodrpg.ini. The old graphics no longer exist in the drodrpg1_0.dat file for version 1.1.
