At first it seems nice to have many resolutions or variations. I was about sugesting it, but I think it's better if you focus on 800x600 that seems to be supported by everybody.

I think as you inheritted the interface from khaile so you are using DirectX and maybe it's better not to think about old computers, because if a PC can do "only" 640x480, I think it will not even run on DirectX.

Back in akarra times I have tried to run in in my old P133 w/ 32 MB of RAM and it just didn't happen. And this PC could do up to 1024x780.

I could be stoned to death by someone here, but I'll take the risk on saying that nobody that is able to play akarra has a computer with 640x480 max resolution, unless you are porting akarra engine to DOS or some lighter Graphic API.

The only thing nice on running 640 in akarra was to see the character's eye color. It got too small in windowed mode. Back there I was using 1024, and now I use 1280 it will get even smaller with those 16x16 sprites. So I think there must be a shortcut as Alt+Enter to make fullscreen because in 800x600 it's fine even in fullscreen.

640x480.. 800x600..

well this is how i use the resulution:

when im chatting on irc surfing while resting i do 640x480 ( nice window easy to move so i can still watch if im attacked. ) and 800x600 i do while playing in fullscreen.

i wuld not mind that there wuld be a list of:
640x480
800x600
1024x768
in a start up screen like the last game.
that screen whas werry nice and gave us users the chance to change the setting depending on what where doing.
also if we where at a friends house and he maby got a little older brand of the computer and you just want to show him "hey check this game out! i think you'r computer suld be able to handle it!"

well that's my idea of the resulution Smile
but as we say in swedish "smaken är som baken" ( it wuld sound strange to translate that to english but the besic message is we all got our own taste )

I run my desktop at 1280x1024 and would be playing it windowed most of the time, so 800x600 works just fine for me. This was excellent for me in Akarra.


And, uh, hi I guess. I played Akarra on and off before, and I've been lurking here on and off for a while. I decided to finally contribute something to the development.

The weird Swedish language. Rolling Eyes

If you will be able to choose between 640*480 & 800*600 I'll be happy.
