FU3 and TFT monitors

Recommended Posts

Does anyone here use a TFT monitor for FU3 ? If so, any comments about the quality ? I am aware that the native resolution of these beasts gives the BEST picture quality, but the native resolution of the monitor that I am interested in is 1280x1024. As you will be aware, FU3 can go no higher than 1024x768, so I would like to know if the picture quality would suffer to any appreciable degree.Thanks for any help.Chris Low.

I have Philips 17" TFT and I can see small diffrence in the quality. The resolution isn't a problem IMO. The only diffrence is in colours - crt monitors give a little better results - less contrast. I was testing both simulators and I have the same conclusions : crt is a bit better.B.Adamski

I still run some older racing games that can only go to 800X600... even one that is 640X480... and they look great on my 19" ViewSonic. I know the reports say colors are better on CRTs but I don't buy it... especially after I got my digital cable. The colors are rich and true. Far better than any CRT I've ever used. If I stand up and look down at the monitor they are washed out... but why would I want to do that?FU3 & FS04 both look great on it. Of course FS goes to 1280X1024 and beyond anyway. But the colors are outstanding for both sims. I also noticed a FPS increase in FS once I was on the digital cable.I could never go back to a CRT now. I get a brief warning message (that I could disable but haven't got around to it) advising me that 1280X1024 is optimal when I run something at a lesser res but other than that I have seen no problem running things in any res.
