Thanks a lot, Mikko!

I'll try to visit at least one of them ;)

Sorry, seems like my link to picture isn't working. Let's try again (didn't edit the 1st post because it's hard to find out, which button should I click :D).

Propilkki in english / Locations of Propilkki lakes in real life
« on: May 24, 2011, 22:42:35  »
As far as I understand, all lakes of Propilkki game can be found in real life, right? If not all then at least some of them.

I'm going to visit Finland after ~2 weeks and my route probably would look like this:

Can any of game lakes be found somewhere around my route (I can change it a bit if it's needed)? I don't have time for fishing [ :-(] but it would be a great pleasure at least to take a photo near some Niemisjarvet or so :)

Thanks for any help.

Hey, finally I had access to widescreen computer and wanted to test new version of game!
Tried with default resolution. Ok in windowed mode but with black parts of screen in all sides. Tried to change resolutions but game doesn't support them and changes resolution back (screen resolution 1680x1050).
Then I managed to solve this problem in easy way - started game in windows mode and enlarged screen not with Alt+Enter but used Maximize button. So far OK but... I wanted fullscreen mode. Are there any solutions, what resolution should I choose?

I hope that your advice is just for fun.
I hate them and I will never buy one unless I have no other choice.

Each time when I play? Uh... not the easiest way...
Probably I will keep playing 0.8 with the new lakes. As far as I understand, there are no new fish in 0.85 (at least I didn't find any new in fish models folder - or have you hidden them somewhere?  :-D). I guess that fishing spots, min/max sizes and similar data are in the lake model file. So, it means that probably I will catch the same fish in 0.8 that I could it 0.85?

About widescreen mode and 0.85. Probably after a week I'm visiting relatives and they own such type of monitor. Then I'll test the new version with all graphic improvements :)

I doesn't work fine. Half of the screen is black (on the top and on the bottom) and fishing screen is anyway too small...

No way, 640x480 in the new version looks rough :(
The only possible way is to put new lakes in the old version folder. Works fine for me, I catch crucian carps, big ides and so on.
I understand that I can't play it in multiplayer, because of old version (most of hosts probably will be with 0.85).

Sorry, Rancor, but it doesn't seem to be a great playing with half of a screen black...

Are you sure? Sounds like a widescreen resolution...

Hi there!

Thanks for the new version of game but I've got a problem with it :( I hope you could give me an advice how to solve it.
Since I haven't got widescreen monitor, I could play v.0.85. only in windowed mode. It's not very comfortable actually. I tried to change resolution to 640x480 in settings to make game look like v.0.8. I managed to get similar screen but graphics somehow look worse.  :-(

1st question - can I change resolution somehow (except that 640x480) to play normally with 4:3 screen?

2nd question - what if I put new lakes in v.0.8. lakes folder? I tried to do it and everything seems to work normally - I can play them, I catch fish and so on... I understand that I will be able to play multiplayer only with players with same "modified" game but it's the best solution so far for me.

Any comments on this?

By the way, could AI of bots improved in one case?
Example: Vuontele, 1st start spot, 10 minute game.

Bots usually run in south direction for like 3 minutes, catch fish about 2 minutes and then run back. It's obvious that they can't get anything in such short time. I understand that bots choose their fishing spots depending on season, weather and so on but maybe they should be limited if time is so short?

Hello from Latvia!

1) Thanks for the great game!  I play it for like 3 months and I'm quite addicted to it :)

2) I wanted to talk about 2 things in ProPilkki (0.8).

a) haven't you ever thought about possibility to end the game before time is out without losing result? For example I have a 2 hour game and after 1,5 hours I have to go. If I close the game, I can't see results of bots. But imagine a feature when I end the game, it simulates fishing for bots for remaining time. Something similar is included in Short Cup so probably it isn't that hard to make some modifications in future versions.
The only disadvantage of this is that "exploring" is possible - looking at results in different seasons to see, when should I catch special fish. Maybe the results could be shown as weight only without more possibilities - you don't see how much zanders or pikes ar caught.

b) About fishing in different depths. If i get a greater fish on hook and my lure was deep enough, fish usually some times goes up and down but not deeper than point where it was caught. If I get big fish just a bit under ice, it doesn't go deeper even if it's big enough. Any comments on this?

Sorry if it's discussed earlier, I was too lazy to read all thread.
