Title: Saving game, 16:9 window
Post by: mauro on May 06, 2014, 09:44:00 am
Hi, I purchased a desktop (computer) copy of Machinarium this morning. I installed the .deb on a Linux Mint powered netbook (Acer Aspire One). Anything works fine except for two things:

- I can't exit the fullscreen mode;
- the screen is 1024x600 and the mouse can't reach the lower menu. This means I've lost the ability to SAVE and even QUIT the game;

Question: are there any shortcuts I can use to SAVE and QUIT?

I must say QUIT is not so important because I found a way to do it by creating a Force Quit ("xkill") custom shortcut, so that I can eventually force the window to close. But, how can I save?

ALT+F4 also closes the window, no need for xkill or custom shortcuts.

BUT... at least in my system the music still plays on, so while the window is gone, the executable is still somehow running in background. "killall Machinarium" in terminal solves this.

As for saving... doesn't the game auto-save on every new scenario? If you play for a while, then ALT+F4 + `killall Machinarium` (or xkill), and launch again, do the "Resume Game" option appear for you?
