What's the resolution Kenneth?

Post by cretinbob »

I was wondering what resolutions would be best. At 1280x1024 I can see the movie and my stats. When I bump down to 1024x768 I don't, and on a 19" screen I'm not going lower than that. The LCD at work,1024x768 is horrible. That seems to be where I miss most, so I'm abandoning the lunchtime searches. They are cheap, so I'm not looking for a flamewar. I know there are better ones out there.


Anyway, what resolution do you search at?

1024 X 768

But be careful.

We have had people to go to "Advanced" from that screen and change their "DPI setting". This should be kept at "Normal size". Seems the coordinates for the focus movies change when "Normal size" is not used.

If you DO change the DPI setting, you need to test and see if top left corner has coordinates of 0, 0 and bottom right 499, 374.
Best just to leave the DPI on Normal.

Using key F11 hides the browser menu and bars which gives you some additional lines if you want to keep an eye on your stats.
