PostSubject: Can't keep ANYTHING straight!   Sun Mar 23, 2008 8:37 pm

I run MoM in fullscreen because of my eyesight (not terrible, but still). On a Mac, when MoM is in fullscreen, I cannot toggle over to other programs as I can in most Mac software. I have to reduce the screen (which takes time and makes an annoying full white screen in the process), do my program switching (check e-mail, etc.), then back to MoM and reset to fullscreen and wait for the white flash-shock and delay.

Because of this I can't just keep (or check) lists of quests, friendly toons, items in inventory, etc.

Does any one of my elder guildies (using the evil Mac) have a method for keeping up with the bookkeeping of this game? Mind you I do not use pencil and paper much at all any more. 99% of the paper in my home-office (and my day job) is produced by others.

Does the Journal have a genuine notation feature I haven't seen yet? (What notes I've made in the journal have seemed like DOS-style input to me which is frustrating.)

I started to make an Excel spreadsheet of my toons and my inventory and after over an hour decided it was too much time away from the part of the game I enjoy. I made item-specific toons ("Tometoter", "Armormyool", "Weaponwagon", etc.) which seemed swell until I started developing a couple of MoD types and hd to make a mule for MoD stuff.

Anyone who has smooth ways of dealing with the important minutiae, please feel free to share your methods with me! Thanks!

As you I am on a mac and I do the fullscreen/windowmode ..... but I got a Intel Core 2 DUo .... 2X 2,4Ghz so that's fast to change ......... about 1 sec white screen

*Looks nonplussed* There's a way to do MoM window mode? I've looked and can't find it

There's a checkbox that says "fullscreen" in "More Options". More Options is accessed when you hit Escape on the keyboard. I'm fairly certain it's the graphics tab, but I'll check when next I start the game to double check. Uncheck that checkbox and it will switch to a windowed mode.

On the Mac, Command-Return toggles between fullscreen and window modes. I saw that in the Help channel one night.

I only have the Intel Core Duo 2 gig, single processor and the time is a few seconds, and the flash REALLY hurts my eyes since I play with no dominant lighting in the room (again to make it easier to see the dark screen).

yes the white is really hurtful sometimes .. I also play with dominant lighting .. to see when it's dark in MOM .... I am sorry I don't have an other idea .. may you can suggest it to PG developers ?
