    Skins look "grainy" with Adv screen settings OFF

    In order to get Frodo Player to center properly on my setup, I have to turn the Advanced Screen setting to OFF. But I've noticed that the quality of the skin goes down the drain. It's all grainy looking, like anti-alias is off or it's displaying in 256 colors. Text looks normal though. I've tried the default and a couple other downloaded skins with equal results. Is there a way to improve the skin quality?

    Ya know.... I hadn't even thought about that. I've been doing some testing on a desktop in 800x600. I think I'm starting to see the light. I'll try an 800x600 skin. Thanks.

    also if you just want to center the skin on screen, and turning off advanced screen settings makes it center, it sounds to me the values in the frodoplayer.ini file are not centered. Its a quick fix, just open froodoplayer.ini and find this section at the bottom

    Code:
    [ADVANCED]
    ADV_TOP=0
    ADV_LEFT=0
    ADV_WIDTH=800
    ADV_HEIGHT=600
    make sure in your file ADV_TOP=0 and ADV_LEFT=0
    set the width and height to whatever screen res your monitor is set to.
    Should fix your problem.
