    Riderunner resolution is incorrect.. tried everything... very frustrated.

    I've been trying for weeks to get this right. I'm very frustrated - my resolution is 1280x800x32x60. I've tried to set this in rrconfig, but it doesn't seem to matter at all. Every time it starts, it runs in 640x480 in the top left corner of the screen. I've also set this in every skin I've tried's general.ini - this does not make a bit of difference. This is entirely frustrating. I don't know what else to try and I'm hoping that somebody has dealt with this before and was able to overcome it. I'm certain that my settings are correct in Windows display properties. Any ideas are greatly appreciated.

    Well no skin I know of runs at 640x480, most run at 800x600 or 848x480.

    try one skin with a general.ini of

    OriginalWidth=800
    OriginalHeight=600
    ShowWidth=1280
    ShowHeight=800

    That's awesome, that worked perfectly. Well, almost perfectly. I have two minor issues now. One is that the windows task bar sometimes shows up, and there is now a mouse cursor on the screen at all times. Since this is a touch screen setup, I'd like to not see the mouse cursor at all, and this is the first time I have ever seen the cursor.

    The next problem is something that has existed even since before your suggestion for a fix, and that is that the text and icons inside of the boxes sometimes spill outside of the boxes. I'm guessing this has something to do with the way windows fonts and sizes are setup, but I don't know what it should be at and even after experimentation they're still spilling out.

    Taskbar and Mouse hide is done through RRConfig.


    As for the text issue can you post an image.
