Sprite sizes on 27" monitor[message #350065] Wed, 14 June 2017 11:22 Go to next message

This may sound a bit off the wall but is related to my modding with Vengeance:Reloaded.

Can anyone of those playing JA with a 27" monitor tell me or measure how tall a merc/enemy sprite stands in mm in the tactical screen when playing in 1280x720 resolution? I'd be very grateful.

Oh, and that's in full screen mode, not windowed.

You probably are looking for a new monitor.
Best to do your own measurements and simple calculations if the size is not ideal for your personal preference and then use it to consider other screen sizes.

What you need:
- decent image editor/pixel location tool (decent screenshot tool has it) & Excel

1. (image editor) Load a merc animation sprite & measure the height in 'pixels' OR (pixel location tool) Launch Ja2 in windowed mode for the sprite height
2. Convert 27 inch diagonal into mm and use Excel to calculate the 'screen height' in mm using 16[width]:9[height] aspect ratio
3. 'screen height' x 'pixels' / 720 will be your eureka

No savegame (just before e bug occurs), no cure.
