FLOPS has announced they are working on custom resolutions for their next version of the patch project - now that is something I am really longing for, as my notbook is always a loss with the currant possibilities.
I know what you mean, I hate the stretching of the UI! The patch project is really great in my opinion, kudos to them.
Yeah I've been reading about this, sounds like a good and promising idea.
Be good if this also comes to be included in the PP.
yes, it will. i hope that i can release it with PP 1.2.6 Custom resolutions alone won't do. You would have all resolutions available but the GUI including all Fonts are still streched which just looks plain ugly then. This can be fixed however with a rewritten gui file made for that aspect. (all current gui files are made for 1600x1200 -> 4:3 resolutions). especially for that i have integrated a small script languange (that is a while now in our FO dev source) which allows to work with dynamic values within the .gui files to allow to create modders one gui file that works on every system, let it be 4:3, 16:9, 5:4, 1.6:1 or whatever.
Sounds great, another aspect of A2 improved lol :)
I'd love to be able to have the guis and the resolution..but if i had to choose...i would take the resolutions first just so i could have them...the gui doesn't bother me as much as seeing a squished galaxy class taking on a squished romulan warbird
the streched gui is also not nice to look at, believe me :P it is even more confusing. let me do this right :)
btw. here is a very old screenshot still with this streched gui from november 2006 when i experimented with custom resolutions for the first time (Star Trek Armada II: Fleet Operations - Custom Screen Resolutions For Armada 2)
I'm sure you'll find a way...i just can't wait for 1440x900...i am so stoked for it...
