    Running at 1024x768..skins?

    Ive got it resized in the general.ini but the buttons look a bit naff (using the default skins) are there any that work better at this resolution or can somebody explain what i need to do to change the images to look better

    Thanks

    RR uses fast resize (to prevent performance issues) of the image files when scaling it in general.ini, so in no way they'll look as good as resized with Photoshop. The only solution is using your favorite application to resize the images and then use the skin editor to change the object positions and sizes on every .skin file you plan to use.

    What kind of screen do you have to be running 1024x768 ? Most 7'' screens have native resolution of only 800x480 or 848x480.. so increasing the resolution just makes you loose detailing of the screen's pixels..

    its a 7" lilliput, if i set it to 800x600 then it looks really crappy, but i think thats down to my laptop. 800x600 looks awful on the laptop screen and i mean really bad, its like its been stretched. Ive tried changing a few settings but the same thing always happens.. so 1024x768 it will have to be
