Hay,
I installed the upgrade of the program (1.3) and according to the information I should be able to choose the resolution wanted ( I have a wide screen : 1440 x 900), but I can only choose between 800 x 600 and 1024 x 768.
Do I have to install the program again or can I alter this in another way?

Greetings Wink

Hi Michel
Your Windows is current in what for resolution is that 1024x786 or 1400x900.
If not Set Win on this resolution and try it again. But i dont know RTR fellows with that resolution or not. What for graca are you using Question with how many MB v-ram? Wink

Hay Peter,
Thanks for fast reply. My windows resolution is set on 1400 x 900 and it works fine. My grafic card is nvidia 64 mb ram, and I updated the drivers with the latest nvidia drivers, because I bought a new monitor ( samsung wide tft). I think I installed RTR before that. So perhaps I have to install it al over again to get a higher resoslution. Idea
greetings Wink

Michel,

As to your screen resolution and your video card 64megs is not enough to run RTR at the higher resolutions of 1400 x 900 like you want. It may work but your computer will start to become jerking when you are riding the rails (camera mode). I suggest that you upgrade to a 256meg video card as soon as possible and add as much ram as your machine will hold.
In order to have your experience with RTR enjoyable.


Happy Railroading
Don

Thanx Brainbom, for the RES tip. All modes work on my sys, 256m Nv graca,
19" Flatscreen, 768m ram.
I find it quite difficult to work with anything higher than 1024x768 though, as the selector is way off. By this, I mean selecting pieces, especially smaller ones, the selector/pointer is way off target. Tinys are time consuming and very frustrating to select. !024x768 is my fav.
I dont have a big mouth, just big fingertips!
unger Very Happy Smile Cool

Version 1.3 offers only a few resolutions.
The new version will offer the same resolutions, but there will be the possibility to choose other resolutions using command line parameters.
