Poll

In Ravinale, do you walk or run with Duvalier?

I walk around, there is no hurry.
I run around, as it takes ages to get from one place to another.
It depends...

Make character move faster
« on: July 18, 2010, 05:43:21 PM »

When you are on the map, honestly, the characters are so slow its painful. Increasing the speed you can move on the map would make the game much better.

Less mobility requires more strategy.  If you make the charcter faster, then it will make the game easier; not better.

I think they already are fast enough (at least the good ones).

When you are on the map

What does "the map" refer to? Do you mean walking around, or in battle?

I mean when you are walking around, not in battle...they walk around too slow, it takes forever to get from one place to another. if they walked faster you could go from one place to another without taking a nap in between.

Yes, I agree with him: I'd wouldn't hurt to implement something (like caps lock, for example) that could replace constantly pressing Shift to run. (@BasiliskKnight You realize you can press Shift to run, right?)

Being able to move faster than running, I disagree with... but being able to constantly run without pressing
Shift is a good idea.

If they move any faster, then I would have to lower my quality(old computer).

I have suggested that on the old forums back with TRPG2 in the making, and I do stand by that point as well- maybe not the NPCs, but certainly the Main should have "running" as his standard mode, and "walking" as his "shift" mode- that would make it so much more useful (e.g. for the very few places in the Crypts where one has to be careful in walking around), as Ravinale is huge, and getting from one place to another takes ages- I never walk, I always use shift, and that can be kind of annoying.
So, I am strongly for either adding an even faster walking method, or swapping around what shift does when you walk.

Is it because you are americans that you always hurry? With slower character movement, it becomes more realistic, and you get more time to enjoy the atmosphere. Itīs perfectly good as it is.

Stereotyping is inappropriate.

I agree.
And this has been a recurring suggestion.

Nevertheless, lowering the visual quality speeds up the game a bit.

Take it easy, it was just a joke.
