What are the system requirements?
For TAGAP 3
For TAGAP and TAGAP 2

i.e. Xbox 360™ Controller or Logitech® ChillStream™
Can I copy TAGAP games to a friend?
As long as you don't charge money and/or services for it and you keep the distributable files as-is, you can share the game via a medium of your choice – floppies, USB sticks, eMail, torrents, TransMat... whatever.
If you are planning to host TAGAP games on the Interwebs, please gives us a shout so we can add you to our download mirrors list. Also, if you are planning to add it to a cover disc of a magazine, again, let us know show we can give you a shout-out.
Can I do a review, Let's Play, article or a YouTube gameplay reel based on your games?
By all means, Let's-Play TAGAP all you like!
We will never go after you with a DMCA complaint. On the contrary, if you put together something cool, drop us a line and we'll share it on our site as well! Also, journalists, pundits and pro-streamers get paid for writing/casting stuff and if the subject matter is TAGAP, that's fine. More than fine; it's a pay check for you and free advertisement for us!
Also, if you do receive a copyright DMCA complaint on a Penguin DT game Let's-Play, it's complete bullshit. Please report it to both us and the platform holder.
In other words, all the fair use stuff is endorsed. Now, let me see those fun playthroughs!
Do you sell these games?
If you see this game on sale – for real or virtual moneys or services – it is done without permission. In other words, it's 100% immoral and illegal.
Please report any such cases to the platform holder and us (Penguin DT).
Only exception to this are a relic of the past called 'cover discs' – demo DVDs/CD-ROMs/USBs shipped with magazines – either at retail or as subscriber specials.
What is Stream Safe Mode?
This may need a bit technical explanation.
TAGAP 3 uses OpenGL, which is designed for non-linear rendering of 3D scenes. TAGAP 3 itself is a 2D game relying on linear rendering. In order for this to work on all hardware and driver combinations, this needs use of a technique called 'flushing'.
This amounts to telling the drivers that we're not processing anything any further until all prior rendering commands have been dealt with. This gives TAGAP 3 best graphical quality with the widest possible hardware compatibility. If we didn't do this, some hardware and driver combinations would render flickering elements. However, this method can interfere with some video capture programs and work super-slow on selection of integrated graphics cards (like Intel Graphics).
The Stream Safe Mode simply toggles the flushing off. This reduces the rendering quality, possibly resulting some flickering elements on some set-ups. However, this should ensure that the screen flushing doesn't annoy your capture software or integrated graphics cards.
It is more than likely that you won't need to use Stream Safe Mode at all, but if you do come across tech issues while streaming or using Intel Graphics, give this option a try.
Do you hate penguins or why all the violence?
On a contrary, we adore them. But testing military stimulants with animals is sick stuff and TAGAP presents a worst-case-scenario of sorts. Besides, if someone actually tries penguin world domination, we're all up for it.
