    Any advice after new update inviting people for a game is not compact as before the upgrade. You hardly can see who you are inviting

    My resolution for game is 1024 x768

     

    Thanks

    Unless the font sizes have been messed up by the upgrade, I'm not sure that you can do much other than try a different resolution. Does your machine's screen size allow you to try that?

    Scott that is exactly the issue. Some of the game screens such as the multiplayer setup screens have been designed using a widescreen aspect ratio. So when someone with a standard aspect ration (1024x768) uses them its all squished together and some of the buttons are not totally visible.

    The only real remedy if you have a standard size screen (not wide) is to change your screen size to a widescreen format. I would suggest using your Custom PCEA Resize Tool to adjust the window height just enough so that the buttons are usable.

    Cheers Marchie.

    There's another resolution picker here that might be a little easier to use.

    Hi Scott I have been using your resolution picker, but still remains the same

    WildCoast, what is your monitor resolution?

    Resolution is 1920 x 1080

     

    I prefer the game setup 1024 x768 as I find it easier to hit the ding. Before the upgrade I used the CTRL and play and everything was perfect

    Thanks Steve.

    Can you see everything you want to see if you make the game screen larger. Because I could send you a little program that enables you to switch between two window sizes via a keyboard shortcut. Then, once you have your match set up, you can switch to the smaller screen size to play.

    Actually, you could do that with the resolution picker but you wouldn't have a keyboard shortcut.

    Yes I use your resolution picker which I have pinned to my taskbar to setup games and then revert to 1024 x 768

    It is painful ­čśľ
