800X600 Resolution question.

Recommended Posts

Guest 22L_Approach

Hello, I have a eyesight problem wich makes reading, text,monitors,guages etc vary hard. From resolution 1024x128. The only problem is, Some a/c such as the lvld 767 or pss 777 panels, look vary distorted. Would there be a way to resize panels so they will fit on a 800x600 resolution, yet not look distorted Thanks

Not really. Depends on the panel though.Sounds like you need a big monitor, so you can actuallyuse the higher resolutions and see the text. Believe it or not, I'm typing this at 1600x1200.But...I'm on a 21 inch monitor, and I use "large"fonts, which I think are "120", if I remember right.At the res I'm at, 1078 to 1600, depending on needs,those "large" fonts don't look large, just normal..:/Many panels aren't worth a hoot at 800x600. In thosecases, it's cuz the panel was designed for a much higher res. Since I changed my video, I've been runningthe sim at 1600x1200. Lately I've been using the largedesktop cuz I keep a TV picture going while I putz with stuff like this...At 1600, I can watch TV, but stillhave plenty of room for this web page, typing, etc..MK

Could I resize the panel BMP to 800x600? Would that make it better?

Resizing a detailed panel that was designed at 1024x768 to 800x600 will cause you to lose a lot of detail, no matter how you do the conversion.On a flat panel monitor this will be even more evident than on a CRT monitor. What kind and what size monitor are you using?I would agree with the previous poster that displaying FS on a bigger monitor will more likely give you the detail you want.Some aircraft also have bigger gauges as part of their panel which might help... the default Mooney is an example.
