    OK, so it finally arrived (Mac version), and I'm playing it and it's fun and all, but...

    Is there any way to adjust the screen rez? It fills my whole screen, which is fine, but the lettering is fuzzy and indistinct in many of the panels. It looks like a 640x480 screen blown up to size, instead of a good 800x600 or higher-rez screen. But I can't find an option anywhere to adjust screen rez. Anybody know the answer? Or do my eyeballs just have to suffer?

    I'm still waiting for my copy... grr...

    I'm pretty sure the entire game is 800x600 only.

    Just got my copy of Moo3. I was also looking at getting Shadowbane but then I realized it needs a subscription...

    It's hardwired at 800x600. Also, the font they chose is downright awful. Thankfully, the game is easy to mod and the fanboys have been hard at work. Try

    http://www.moo3mods.com/

    for some font and graphic mods.

    There's also a data patch available which will fix a few things, and a code patch coming next month which will fix a lot of things. The AI was unintentionally crippled just before the game shipped, and it won't be entirely fixed until the code patch, though the data patch will help a little. I'm waiting until the code patch before going back to it, as the game is pretty easy on Impossible as it stands.

    [b]More on Moo3[/b]

    Talking to Cauldyth has cleared up a lot of questions for me about the game. He also told me about this forum discussion which contains several posts by one of the AI designers about how economics work in Moo3.

    read the thread

    The posts are not back-to-back so you will have to read through it.

    I hope the code patch comes out for the Mac soon... without the AI attacking it's kind of a lame game. 8)
