What's your screen resolution?

Post by Berendol » Tue 06.02.2007, 14:33

I often wonder what display resolution our players typically use.

So, here's a poll. Pick the closest one to your normal resolution. If you don't know, the Display (Windows) or Displays (Mac) control panel will tell you somewhere. Click the links to see screenshots of what you're looking for.

E. 1920 by 1200

Naturally I have to use some of the bigger fonts included with the Mangclient for things to be a decent size.

D.

I'm considering buying a 3'rd monitor (have 2x19" now) and it would probably be a pretty damn large one, but still undecided.

1280x1024 seems large enough, really. :)

I didn't answer my own poll. Oops!

E. 1600x1200 when I use one monitor, second monitor at 1280x1024 when it's connected. Limited desk space, you know how that goes.. and yeah, I think we need better large fonts without serifs.

I've got a Compaq P1210.. 23" / 21" visible, max 2048x1536. I highly recommend you to ebay a refurbished one if you're in the market for a new one. Also, I think MAngband looks awesome on LCDs.

Great to see you all posting. Should I do more polls?
