    Hi,

    Why do you want to use that resolution ? I would suggest using any resolution at or above XGA but all in a 4:3 format. This is the default resolution for most projectors. I use my projectors in 1024x768 mode with FS in 1600x1200.

    I would also not advise you to use a curved screen, it is way easier to use 3 equal screens with a little angle, keep in mind that using TH2GO, you only stretch the front image over 3 screens. Si higher angles are not realistic.

    If you do want to go into curve, you will need aditional software or loose sharpness.

    Hi! I might be missing something here but if your gfx adapter runs in 1024/768 and fs is set to 1600/1200 there has to be a downscale since fs changes the resolution for the gfx adapter when started. So the projectors have to downcale to native resolution.

    I have checked the difference between higher res (not 1600/1200 though)and native res on my projectors by standing next to a taxi sign. The text was absolutely most clear and readable with fs in the same res as the native res for my projectors 1024/768.

    Would be interesting to here your result in a situation like that. Maybe downscaling from a 4:3 to another 4:3 resolution doesn't take the same hit (blurr) as downscale from 16:9 to 4:3. But you still don't get more pixels on the screen than your projectors native resolution.

    Daniel ,
    Be careful what you ask for-- you might get it! It wasn't easy flying with a joystick and videotaping at the same time! Enjoy
