Video resolution used. Please just pick one of the selections and lets not get into long explanation replies to the poll. What resolution do you use when on the internet?

Scott,It's actually a generous question.I have two monitors and one is at 1024x768, while the other is at 800x600. The combos are endless. ;-)

O YES O NO O I DON't KNOW :-waveP.S.

I voted for the 800x600 this morning but it's not showing any votes for that screen res?? Judging from how few votes there are overall maybe you should post this poll in the more popular forums or maybe on the front page? Personally I would hate to see these forums go up in screen res which would require much scrolling by those of us that use 800x600.

now 1024*768 but on next rig(due friday) it'll be 1600*1200 for FS, and 1280*1024 for default windows on my 17" monitor(new one, finaly)

Hi Scott,What with all the discussion over this forum lately, I think this is a great idea.I've always wondered why you all aren't using the poll abilities of the forum system more often - there are simply so many topics that it would be more than interesting to know the responses to in the sim field.So, maybe you all can make this a weekly thing... Take suggestions for the topics and post new official polls in this Hanger forum - then advertise them on the front page and the like. That should indeed make this forum a lot more interesting to a wider variety of people than it seems to be now. Someone brought up the "family" idea of forums: well lets just turn this forum into the new, modern extension built onto the back of the old, crusty house (instead of a "dark and lonely" hanger, that is)...:-)Mines 1280x960x3 by the way.Take care,http://members.rogers.com/eelvish/elrondlogo.gifhttp://members.rogers.com/eelvish/flyurl.gif

Good idea this one. The problem is that at home I use 1280x1024 on my 19" monitor, and at work 1024x768 on my 17" monitor.Dave.

I run my 17" monitor at 1024x768 but all of my browser windows (and web-site designs) are 800x600. I don't like having my browser maximized - I prefer to have a load of windows open which I can flick between. I run games/sims/apps etc at 1024 though.Iain Spowart,Scotland.Webmaster and photographer,Scottish Claymores 2002Cheerleaders Fan Sitehttp://avsim.iainspowart.com/2002-s.jpghttp://www.claymorescheerleaders.comhttp://www.iainspowart.com

Did you know that 1280x1024 is the wrong aspect ratio? All the other resolutions are 1.33:1 (even Flybert's 960x720) but 1280x1024 is 1.25:1. The funny thing is that I'm using 1280x1024 and don't notice any abnormalities such as elliptical circles or rectangular squares. Maybe the difference isn't enough to be ovious without measuring?

Thanks Elrond, sounds like a good idea to try to draw some interest to the forum. I actually had a double intention with this poll. One to see just how many people made it to this forum to answer the poll on their own. This would give me a little bit of an idea how many people are tuning into it right now. In the next couple of days, I'll pass the word about this forum to some of our other busiest forums to try to get the rest in here. The second purpose is pretty straight forward. To get an idea of resolution to help us base the items in the website to general preference, especially in the forums.And while I'm at it, I'm bumping this poll back to the top. Note to self: also need code change to allow anchoring of polls. arrggghh

Yes! I forgot about that. Anchoring of polls would be a most welcomed feature enhancement. Thanks Scott!

Mine is so high that all the people look like ants. Hey, wait a minute..that one just crawled onto the mouse pad!(no "click" for 1152x864)

Now I guess I'll publicize this poll in the high activity forums so hopefully I can get some concensus from most of the forum users.Also, thanks for pointing out some of the places where this poll came up short. Always seems to be the way that you see where things could have been stated better. However, so far the poll is pretty much giving me the info I needed.If you use more than one resolution, just pick the one that you use the most. If your resolution isn't listed, just pick the closest one on the lower end. That will make sure any skewing of the results leans towards the lowest common denominator.Thanks again.

1024x768 on a 19' and 2x17'. Someone raised a good point above, though ... I too make sure my website work is viewable 800x600, as so many people - particularly, in an office environment or those who don't run games or just can't see! - use this format. In fact one or two of mine still have not been updated from the 640x480 days (are those the right numbers? ... can't even remember) for the ancient laptop users amongst us.So if this poll is to search out the best format for Avsim .... well 800x600 viewability is a must.Mark "Dark Moment" Beaumonthttp://www.swiremariners.com/cxkaitak.htmlhttp://www.swiremariners.com/reds.htmlhttp://www.swiremariners.com/cxkaitakv3.jpg

I'm on 1024x768 on my 17" monitor coz of having 85 Hz, with 1280x1024 I get only 60 Hz. My eyes can't stand that for any longer than half a minute...Cheers! :-wavehttp://members.lycos.co.uk/fs2k2/avsim/sig.jpg... under short final 25L EDDFWhich is not fitted cannot cause trouble...

for surfing on the net I use 1280x1024 for FS I use 1600x1200 , like gary said, not one jaggie :-hahAll at 85Hz ofcourse :-hahAnd now we are talkin about screen resolutions etc.. Is there a way to get FS2002 run in 1600x1200x32? :-hmmm:-waveshocky :-hah

Yes there is a way to force FS to run at 1600x1200x32, assuming your monitor and video card support that. Simply set your desktop resolution at 1600X1200X32. Now open flight sim go to Optionshardware etc. and you should see a listing for that resolution. Give it a try, thats how I get mine to show 1600x1200x32.I normally run at 1280x960x32 on a 19" monitor however.

Scott,You want to know the res of my BROWSER not FS. Shows what I get for reading carefully. If you hadn't posted on the FS forum about this, I wouldn't even have noticed.If it's my DESKTOP (which sets my browser size), then that's 800x600, so my vote of 1024x768 is wrong.I bet others misread the same as I did.
