...sucker for animal games that I am, and I am most unhappy that it wants a resolution of 1280x800 to even run.

I've a native resolution of 1366x768. For the want of 32 pixels... *sigh* At least it was only a fiver?

I did get it for the unicorns. Alas, I must go without. No worries, though, I'll get round to hooking the lappy up to an external monitor eventually! :P

You could look around in the files of the game to see if there's something along the lines of settings.ini or something and see if you can edit the resolution there

I played this lastnight on my 24" monitor and it looked fine. I'll install it on my laptop when I get a chance to test it out.

I have a Unicorn and a Pegasus. Once I level up my Pegasus, I'm gonna breed them!

what exactly is this game, it seems like another version of Catz, Dogz or Horsez just with mythical horses instead, sounds very "big girls blouse" to me

Is it possible to force the resolution under launch options?

if the game needs that res to run and it is not in the description when you buy it you can ask for a refund

I got it for my daughters... Looks cute, fairly simple for them to play too... and for only $7, basically the price of a video rental these days, so I think its money well spent on an indie title.

i bought this game too and i have played about 12 hours so far, its more difficult than you think. :D

got my first lvl 3 ice steed yesterday lol

tho ive just noticed when you get a new colt / foal whatever at the top of the screen where the shop icon usually is there is a glowing blue shard. Click on it and it says collect 5 meteorite shards. next thoughts... there are meteroite shards?.. what meteroite shards, where, how, what?

Any ideas? has anyone else come across these shards in the game cos im flumoxed ive looked everywhere on the farm in the various component buildings, i have a max lvl well for 6 stable slots and well on my way to making a lvl 4 creature but not seen anything else mention these shards.

many thanks

Sighz~! I'm already regretting for getting Seasons of Mystery instead of Secret of Magic Crystal. I finished that game in like 2 hours, and there are people playing this game for 12?

And the worse part is, there isn't a forum for the former too. :(

You don't level the horse...you have to breed them...and when you breed two level 1 horses you will get a level 2. Breeding is the key to leveling.

If you upgrade the Stable to level 5 you can buy level 2 colts at the shop!

WHAT?!?! (http://i.imgur.com/lTxDW.png) They added support for lower resolutions but I can't run them?

Am I doing something wrong or is this game being silly?

You should update your windows program resolution (1024 *768 or higher). I did it and game run on my Pc. I had to reboot once after everything was ok.

Windowed or fullscreen, every resolution resulted in that error.
