Screen resolution?

What screen resolution do you use when running MP3-Boss?

MP3-Boss supports from 800x600 and up...but I'm wondering if I should assume that everyone runs at least 1024x768 now?  It would give me enough extra room for buttons like "Artist Lookup", "Song Lookup" etc. right from the List View (and maybe even show the album cover?).

Can anyone point me to some statistics shows the percent of people running 800x600 instead of 1024x768?

Re: Screen resolution?

v0.611 will have a few improvements as far as support for both 800x600 and higher resolution.  At 800x600, most of the main screens will be automatically maximized every time they are called up, and the only options will be to close or minimize (can't be sized).  At higher resolutions, List View will still be maximized like always, but the other screens will be brought to the size that shows all the content -- and the position of the screen will be remembered.

I normally use 1280x1024 ... and it had been awhile since I used 800x600.  Quite a difference!

I think these changes in v0.611 will help continue full support for both low and high resolution.

Anyone using 1600x1200 or higher?

Re: Screen resolution?

I run 2560x1600 and find MP3-Boss doesn't work that great ... assumed the problems were a limitation of the Access runtime.

If not, let me know and I'll send screen shots showing some of the annoying "features".

Re: Screen resolution?

Please send me a screen shot.

Unfortunately, I don't have a screen that allows higher than 1680x1050 -- so it makes it hard to troubleshoot problems with higher resolutions.

Re: Screen resolution?

You'll find several screen shots here ...

  http://www.cherryfield.net/resources/mp … -res.shtml

What surprised me after writing the text on that web page was the fact that MP3-Boss works MUCH better on a 1680x1050 screen (on the 2560x1600 screen it behaved as though designed for a screen no wider than 800 pixels).

I also have a machine I run at 1920x1200 and can test a version there at some point; let me know when it's worth the effort.
