Fullscreen or windowed?

Post by Gekko64 on Wed Oct 15, 2014 3:28 pm

Well, the hype got to me and I'm going to play on TSW when XV comes out. Unfortunately this means giving up on multires and going back to 800x600. How do you people handle that, fullscreen with black bars or windowed? Also, do you like d3d/glide colored lighting or better to just use d2d? Do you leave perspective enabled or disabled? What about the contrast btw, it seems like it on max settings by default but it might look better at 50%

Windowed with d2d. If your PC can handle glide I recommend tweaking the settings a bit and you can get pretty decent results with the limited 800x600 resolution.

Fullscreen with glide of course, perspective off, contrast - no changes since glide helps me.

But what black bars do you have. Thinking Thinking

i can create black bars by changing 16:9 to 4:3 on monitor, played like that for pretty long time right after i got this monitor. now got used to it and dont rly give a fuck. but honestly its much more comfortable to play like that, just it looks pathetic =/

yeah black bars due to different aspect ratio. do you stretch the image to fit a widescreen monitor?

Ok, I've managed to make it look good in 800x600. D2SE is pretty nifty to test this stuff:

1) windowed mode, so the image doesn't look stretched. works fine at 720p desktop resolution, would probably be too small at higher resolutions.

2) glide, provided you tick "no gamma" in the renderer section so it doesn't mess up the screen contrast/brigthness. there's also a nice "captured mouse" in the settings so the cursor doesn't wander off the window.

3) perspective off, the fake 3d effect looks funny.

4) with D2SE you can use -ns while traveling through acts, which normally would ctd.
