01:51, Logicalerror whispers: He can't nokia is indestructible!
02:52, Chad> Love the 8-Bit Google Map.
06:06, Granpire viking man> What was last year's?
06:07, Granpire viking man> Oh right, those Gmail motion controls. :P http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bu927_ul_X0
13:28, Serpens whispers: Does anyone here play Noctis using Virtualbox?
13:35, Neuzd> I do sometimes, Serpens.
14:00, Serpens> So, let me ask, does the display fill your whole screen if you play in full screen mode?
14:09, Neuzd> mmmh, that I don't remember. It's likely that I've always played in a window.
14:11, Serpens> I see. This is basically my problem - the display doesn't scale to fill the screen. I'm too easily distracted when playing in a window.
18:06, Cryoburner> Virtualbox has a "fullscreen" mode, though it just adds black borders.
18:16, Cryoburner> Switch to a low resolution (like 640x480 or 854x480) before running it though, and it should fill the screen.
18:23, Serpens> It is better with 800x600, though still not perfect. Looks like Windows won't let me set anything lower.
18:32, Cryoburner whispers: Isn't there still the "run in 640x480" compatibility option?
18:34, Cryoburner whispers: If your on a widescreen monitor, setting it to a 4:3 resolution might make Noctis super-wide though. :P
18:38, Serpens> I can't even choose this option with Virtualbox' executable. It's grayed out.
18:38, Cryoburner whispers: It's actually already stretched a bit at its native pixels, since it's intended to be stretched vertically to fill a 4:3 screen.
18:39, Cryoburner> Which option, fullscreen?
18:39, Cryoburner whispers: Oh, 640x480 probably.
18:40, Serpens> Yes, 640x480. I already said in the beginning that I tried playing in fullscreen and the display won't stretch. :P
18:40, Cryoburner whispers: That's probably because your driver doesn't support that resolution.
18:41, Serpens> The option is available for other executables, though.
18:44, Cryoburner> Did you try creating a new shortcut to it?
18:47, Cryoburner whispers: Hey, I guess the Windows display properties slider doesn't even go below 640x480 in Windows XP.
18:49, Cryoburner uses a tray-based utility to select resolution when needed.
18:50, Serpens> Well, I tried both a shortcut and the executable itself.
18:50, Cryoburner whispers: Which isn't often. It does go to 640x480 though. :P
18:51, Serpens whispers: ATI Tray Tools?
18:51, Cryoburner whispers: Yep.
18:52, Serpens whispers: I'd use it too, but I ran into some... issues while installing it. :P
18:53, Cryoburner> It might still depend on your monitor's driver though.
19:47, Malkom> BOO!
19:48, Malkom> You should try using DOSEmu if you're on Linux... that's how I did it.
20:22, Mingamango181 whispers: Blargh.
21:06, Kynreeve whispers: Ninja-style!
22:46, Malkom whispers: Ninjas? What are you talking about? I don't see any ni--
22:47, Malkom whispers: %#%^^$^@^@$^^ ^$@@%$% ?!?!??!???!?!????!!!! *squelch*
23:04, Cryoburner whispers: Oh no! Some ninja just dropped his walkie talkie!
23:05, Malkom> You are SO good at saying totally unexpected things and making them funny. XD
23:07, Malkom whispers: I really should have thought of something funny to say to that.
23:26, Kynreeve whispers: Have you watched Nerd Cubed last vlog by any chance, Malkom? :P
23:27, Malkom whispers: I don't even know what that is, so no.
23:28, Kynreeve whispers: I see. If you like let's plays you should see his youtube channel. This guy is hilarious
23:29, Malkom whispers: Oh, that! I've seen one of his videos. I just didn't make the connection between the 3 and the "cubed" :P
23:33, Kynreeve whispers: So far my favourite is Overgrowth video -- http://youtu.be/QhWHIkvfa90?list=UUKab3hYnOoTZZbEUQBMx-ww
