  • Will DPI setting effect the look or function of ME?

    i mean MI (mobile impact), not ME...
    i downloaded and installed it and it came out looking and acting funny, can't describe it so i'll see if i cant capture it and save it... but just wondering if the DPI would affect it?

    I have had a couple of reports of this and havent been able to nail it down. The more information that you can give me the better. Here are some screenshots of what I have been told is happening from another forum member. Is this what is happening? Im sure this problem is just a simple video setting, but I havent been able to duplicate it. Set your display to 800x600 then run the program and see if this still occurs, maybe this will fix it.

      Also...check your refresh rate. If its too slow, it will paint the screen..and will produce that....

          Go to your display properties and then hit the settings tab then hit the advanced button, then if you have a special tab that shows your video card hit that, similar to the picture below:

            Thanks for the info, actually what is showing in these pictures is; The display resolution is set to 1024x768, and the form is somehow being resized but the graphics are not. This shouldnt be possible. This indicates that there is some sort of zoom feature on the video card happening that nobody has identified yet. The NVidia cards have this feature, but I havent been able to reproduce it with any of the cards that I have. Specifically what video card and monitor does everyone have that is producing this problem?

              I fixed it! i redid my DPI back to the default of 96, and changed my refresh rate back to 60 and that fixed it. I dont think the res had anything to do with it, but adjusting the DPI also fixed my cropped box problem in iGuidance as well...

                bump on an old thread. it was the closest thing i could find with the answer to my problem. i was getting waves and i changed my refresh rate and that helped 90 % so i went searching for the other 10....i changed the dpi settings and it gave me some error where it wrote the new settings in....and then it helped so i went up another level on the dpi to like 121 i think and it was great then i ran my FE and it did that! with the off center MI and the buttons not workign right and ****. so i went to change it back and now its telling me i need the windows CD!! wtf?!

                  It sounds like youve gone and altered your video driver. Reinstall the Video driver, then set the display to 96dpi and at 60hz refresh and you should be ok.

                      goddamnit! i uninstalled the driver and reinstalled and it still reverted back to 120 when all was said and done.
                      it still requires the win xp pro disk. i think it over wrote some system file. i tried to locate it "dosapp.fon" and it wont write back to it...at least that was the file it wanted i found it in the sys32>dllchache and it didnt rewrite....but...

                      hell.
                      i dont know.

                            yay!!!!! i did it!!! i aquired a copy of xp home (even though it said insert pro) and i got the file and all is well. i even went to 256 color. so all is well!

                            so. YOU CAN USE XP HOME FILE FOR XP PRO. hopefully that'll get searched for and answer questions....

                              Im glad you worked it out. Yes; most of the core system files between XP pro, Home, Media Edition, Tablet Pc edition are all the same, the main difference is the shell and the kernel files.
