I bought Metal Dead from Desura; however, when I try to play it I get an error which says, "There was a problem initializing graphics mode 800 x 600 (32-bit). (Problem: 'The requested adapter mode is not supported') Try to correct the problem, or seek help from the AGS homepage.  Possible causes: *your graphics card drivers do not support this resolution.  Run the game setup program and try the other resolution.  The graphics driver you have selected does not work.  Try switching between Direct3D and DirectDraw.  The graphics filter you have selected does not work.  Try another filter.

Normally, I can run the game setup program to fix this problem by changing the Direct3D to DirectDraw; however, I cannot or do not know how to access the game setup program with Desura.  Please help!

Sorry to hear about the setup problems. :(
The game should be installed in the Desura folder just like Steam. So if you head to where ever you installed Desura:

Desura > Common > Metal Dead

The winsetup file should be in there and you should be able to change the settings or even run the game straight from the exe if you so desire.
Hope that helps you out. If you have any other problems pm me anytime.

I love how the guy on the third floor is named DXM and he's in a trance. I got that drug reference immediately.

Solid game! I dug the cute graphics, the setting, the jokes. The puzzles were mostly pretty simple but I still got stumped a few times. Definitely worth the bucks.

Just bought this from Indievania - http://www.indievania.com/games/metal-dead - but it's downloading as a 1[1] file (whatever that is   ???), so Windows doesn't recognise it.  I can't even unzip it or open it.   :(

How do I make this work in Windows?

Got the PM, thanks   ;D

Played a bit of it, and I LOVE IT!   :D

Love the graphics style.  And the conversation in the car is hilarious.  And the excitement when he kills his first zombie... lol.   :D

Excellent game   ;D
