    Question about resolution/size

    Is it possible to make a freedrive skin in 640x530 resolution? If so how? I tried changing the [size] tag in the ini file but it doesn't seem to work.

    The reason I'm asing is the area I try to embed Freedrive in is 640x530, and when I use a 800x600 skin it is resized which makes the fonts look ugly.

    Hmm I tried that but it didn't seem to work, I probably missed some option, I'll try again Is there anywhere else where I should change the resolution, besides the [size] line in the ini file?

    I'm have the same problem
    I can't seem to get the map to go all the way to the bottom. I tried setting the "map size" tab in the skin.ini file but nothing happens
    Are you refering to the tag"size" in the settings.ini file ?

    The mapsize should be in the skin.ini, not the settings.ini :

    #MAP left,top,width,height
    map=0,0,640,460

    I tried that one also but cannot seem to enlarge the map. there is always a black band along the bottom of my screen.

    Hmm, as far as I know that is what should control the mapsize.
    Does changing the size tag in settings.ini make any difference?
    (I used that to make my skin the right resolution:

    #size left,top,width,height in pixels
    size=-0,0,640,530

    )

    The "size" setting in the setting.ini file depends on the setting of the "savesize" option in the same file. If the "savesize" option is set to "1" then the "size" setting automatically gets set to the size of the window that embeds FD. So actually there is no need to set the size manually. It will auto-set itself the first time the FD window is embeded.
    What I have not tried is to set this option "Savesize" to "0".

    I've defined the sizes manually because I kept getting misalignments when using savesize=1. After I manually put in the size and set savesize=0 the misaligning was gone.
