    AMP Resolution Problems

    I'm running AMP on a PPC G4 Mac mini, and a Lilliput 619, at 800x600, 60Hz. It doesn't scale to the full height of the screen, the top 1/4 of the screen isn't being used by AMP, but the rest of the Mac displays correctly.

    I've tried changing the resolution to 640x480, but AMP scales to be way bigger than that, and is running off the screen. Any ideas?

    Amp only displays correctly in 800x480.

    You'll need either displayconfigx or switchresx.

    I like switchresx because you can have different resolutions set for different programs.

    Thanks. I downloaded displayconfigx but I don't think I played around with it much. We use switchresx at work, so I'm more familiar with it. I'll give it a try, thanks.

    800x400, 60Hz right? Any other key settings?
