I wonder why it's listed separately....
'Fair' in this case just refers to the game giving necessary clues to solve the game. Knox and Dine are actual mystery guidelines made by two separate authors.

Oh, I see... I thought Fair ment the Fair Play Rules of the Golden age

On a side note... is it just me or does one of the rooms in the Guest House look like a room from the Hotel Pera Palace

Though one could now read that phrase very differently from the way it appeared around ep2.

Is it Episode 2 or Episode 3 though where Beatrice actually says she is using the Knox Rules?

That would make things even stranger in that case.

They're actually not mentioned by the characters at all until EP5.

She's not actually using the Knox rules. Just the rule that there are no hidden doors. And let's be honest, if that rule wasn't there, Battler could just say "Hidden door X was used" and that defeats all locked room murders.

She implied that she never used secret passages, but she never said that she follows the Knox Decalogue.

But really, the Knox Decalogue is just a way of keeping things fair, stating what should already be fairly obvious to Mystery readers and writers. Every single rule (chinamen excepted) is just a specific version of the more general "We cannot reason about that which we do not know."

Van Dine is similar, although it also targets Mystery cliches in addition to the obvious puzzle-breaking inconsistencies.

I assume you're wondering if onscripter will play on a monitor of a different resolution? Well my monitor is widescreen and it plays fine It just doesn't reach the side edges of the screen. The little bit on the side just stays black :]

Sorry to ask but there currently is no episode 7 compatible episode 6 patch?

I went ahead and got ep 7 without checking, since by looking at the past those don't seem to take long.

Yes, i want it to stay black and go non wide screen mode.
However, on my current monitor it doesnt work that way and stays widescreen stretched.
I remember there was some trick you could use with custom resolution in the nvidia panel but ofc you need to know the exact resolutions for the program to configure that.

It's apparently going to be released sometime soon. That's all we know.

Unfortunately that sounds like a resolution/monitor issue. You'll have to fiddle with your graphics controls until it stops forcing widescreen. There is an option in the NVidia panel, as you said, but I don't have one handy to check.

Alternatively, see if your monitor has adjustment settings while in fullscreen 640x480 mode. For some widescreen monitors, switching to very low resolutions not anticipated as being used cause bad configurations of the screen dimensions and don't auto-adjust properly. If the monitor menu has an "Auto Adjust" option, try that while in 640x480 and see if the screen fixes itself.

In the Nvidia panel, under the display option there should be something that deals with size and position of the desktop, there should be an option there to keep the ratio width/height for resolutions smaller than the native resolution. If you choose that it should do the trick, at least it did for me.

Quick update on patch progress. The first EP7 patch with the first 4 chapters will be finished soon, but we're a bit short on editors at the moment (people have college and stuff). One or two more people might speed things up a little for us.

Oh that's great. Too bad about the lack of editors, but it's understandable. I am swamped with college myself. Hope everything goes well for you guys.

i would gladly help, but i fear that my skills in Written Japanese are too poor.
If you can go deep in details about what tasks you need to be accomplished by an editor, i can enroll and help if i can be of any use.

I got lots of free time.
