Resolution issue [message #345264] Tue, 03 May 2016 03:46 Go to next message

Playing 1.13 with Aimnas big maps on my Windows 10 laptop. Playing at 1024X768. There are black bars on each side of the image making the image display in just the center of the screen. So the display is like an old monitor instead of using the full screen of modern monitors.

Is there a way to display this full screen at that resolution? I think I remember playing 1.13 on my Windows Vista/7 laptop at full screen. I plugged my laptop into my hotel HD TV with an HDMI cable and the entire screen was filled and it looked great.

Any suggestions? What resolutions do most people play?

It depends on the native resolution of your PC display. If it is 1920x1200 for example the ratio is 1,6 (16:10) so you should select a resolution in Ja2.ini that reflects that ratio. While you could select 1920x1200 directly I wouldn't advise it. The strategic screen isn't scaled so you end up with a centered UI with lots of black around it. The tactical screen however occupies the whole screen so at high resolutions one can see a large area.
So basically figure out the native resolution of your display, calculate the ratio and try out game resolutions that match that ratio. 1024x768 for example has a ratio of 1,33 (4:3).
