View Full Version : DS 7, adjusting screen resolution, and object positions.

I have a demo I created in 800 x 600 resolution. If I change the resolution under demo --> properties to a higher or lower resolution the objects in the screen (i.e. buttons and text) have to be repositioned in the screen through out the entire demo.

Is there a way to change the screen resolution to 1024x768 and have the objects positioned in the same place within the background as they should be in a larger background?

What I would suggest is creating a full screen demo. You can do this by going to the Demo | Properties meun, and under the Styles tab, uncheck the Windowed Playback Style. What this will do is scale your demo to fit the size of the user's screen. So if they are running at 1024x768, the demo will be 1024x768. If the resolution is 800x600, the demo will be 800x600. All of the buttons and demensions of the demo will have the same scale.

You will need to have the Resize Options of your graphics set to Resize Image so that they will scale properly.

Thanks, that worked. However I did notice the text and pictures in the scenes that I created in 800x600 in the designer get a little off when looking at it full screen 1024x768.

Other than that it works well.
