WTF? The game lets me pickup right after the demo? LAME!

How come it has no true widescreen resolution? Im getting 1600x1200 with 16:10 aspect ration... no choice for a widescreen res...
autoexec.cfg just like Doom 3...it's built on the Doom 3 engine.

Prey\base\autoexec.cfg (create it of course)

Here is what I have in my autoexec.cfg...some extra stuff I'm testing but the res is there:

com_precache 1
image_useCache 1
image_cacheMinK 3072

r_mode -1 <-- must have this for the following two entries to work
r_customHeight 1050
r_customWidth 1680

r_useOptimizedShadows 1
r_useTwoSidedStencil 1
r_useCachedDynamicModels 1
image_preload 1
image_usePrecompressedTextures 1
image_useNormalCompression 0

Yes it is supposed to. The developers said they did that on purpose. I deleted my saves before playing anyways though

How is it lame that it lets you continue from the demo?
It isn't hard to open notepad and change a few settings either...

I feel like its cheating if I continue off from a demo... I already deleted the demo saves so when I begin the retail it will be from the beginning.

I thought that was a great feature. I didn't want to start over since I had just recently finished the demo

I too tried to start off from where the demo left off, although i ran into a bit of a problem. So i step into the portal, which takes me "beyond" the demo. It loads just fine, but as soon as it starts, i can't see my weapons. They're literally not on the screen. They appear in my inventory, i can switch between them, i can shoot, zoom etc, but they don't show up. Has anyone ran into this bug?

What do i do now? Do i start over (though i have no guranteee that when i reach this level again, it'll work) or is there a fix maybe?

Yep, I had the same thing. Restarting the game fixed it for me.

"#str_07194" "Prey Game Key is invalid"
"#str_07195" "Prey Expansion Pack Key is invalid"
"#str_07196" "This Prey Game Key is banned"
"#str_07197" "This Prey Expansion Pack Key is banned"
"#str_07198" "Prey Game Key is in use"
"#str_07199" "Prey Expansion Pack Key is in use"
"#str_07202" "Both;Prey;Prey EP"

Definately seems that way, overall average rating is an 84%. Seems that if you s big fan of the D3 engine and those style games it's a definate buy, but it's short and the voice acting is just terrible. I'm passing on this game, not even the multiplayer is anything spectacular, should be interesting to see if the MultiPrey will ever see competitive play.
