|Ladies and Gentlemen,
First, thank you for your support over the holidays and beyond. I
think I speak for many of us in saying we are extremely happy with
the positive reviews from all of you. Thanks a lot. OK, enough about
us, let's talk about how we can help you.
Weíve added some help for the first time visitor to our site. For
clarity's sake, we've added a direct link to the message boards as
well as a link to our support page.
As you may well know, the message board is our main forum for
game discussion. You can normally ask and receive fast and friendly
advice from one of the many locals (and any one of us) who frequent.
Your best bet for help and information is here.
If you are new to the Torment, you may want to read the
FAQ. It answers a lot of common questions.
The support link will take you directly to our help page. Here
you can find some basic info about the game requirements and get
Thanks again and take care,
|A little post-gold update.
First, some common question weíve gotten since we went gold.
A lot of people asked about the foreign language versions. As we
speak, programming and QA are finishing up those versions. The nice
thing (for me and the artists) is Bioware made it pretty easy for us
to make artistic changes. Basically, we just replace some rendered
button art and viola! Most translation duties involve changing a
huge ole text file. This file effects everything from dialogs to
descriptions to some of the buttons. The end result is the French
and German versions should be out soon. Iíve heard varying reports
from one to three weeks but that depends on how smooth translation
Some people have asked about the UK release. As of this second, I
donít know the release date in the UK but Iíve been probing around
for an answer. The date will be posted when the info is solid. (Iíve
heard it could hit very near the US date. hmmmm)
Another question is the minimum spec requirements. Our main
website lists a P200MMX w/32 Megs and a 4 Meg video card as the min
spec machine. That requirement is definitely baseline. Iíve seen the
game running on that and it was playable. It wasnít as spanky as a
faster machine but playability was there. I guess a little test for
you the player could be to remember the character animations and
spell effects are bigger than Baldurís Gate so if your machine was
chuggy on Baldurís it will likely be chuggy with this game.
Iím sure all you happy people want to know what the whole happy
Torment team has been up to since we went gold. Iíve already
mentioned the programming guys are working on the foreign language
version. Some of the artists are helping with the foreign language
versions. A couple of us are also assisting on Icewind Dale. Most of
our team is decompressing. The last few weeks (or was that months)
were a long stretch. A LOT of people put in 16 hour days to test and
tweak the game. Everybody got a little extra vacation time to unwind
as a result and some people started using it already.
The future.. good question. Yah thereís something in the works
(that canít be that much of a surprise). Iím sure youíll hear about
it soon enough. Till then, give Torment a spin.
PS. Iím going to be down at the Irvine Spectrum this week hunting
down the first public copies of Torment. You may see me. I simply
must buy all my Interplay games from outside stores. Yah, we got a
company store but I love the excitement of walking in and putting
down the cash-o-la. Sometimes, I get to hear all those happy people
and maybe meet a few.
