Screen Size
« on: November 05, 2019, 09:36:34 pm »
I've moved my Warp 4.52 machine to a 1680 x 1050 native monitor resolution.  I'm using VirtualBox's gradd driver and 1280 x 1024 integrates into the 1680 x 1050 when viewed in full screen.

How can I get it working natively at that resolution?
Is there a monitor table set up somewhere that I can edit to allow it to work an unusual resolution like 1680 x 1050?

You know, there must be such a table, because Panorama uses the Gradd driver, and it can set up quite a range of resolutions.

Of course, you could just use Panorama. Still, it would be nice to have a utility to set up Gradd, much like PanoUtil does for Panorama.

Gradd only supports whatever the video bios supports. Panorama works around this by patching the bios to support wide screen monitors, based on the EDID, works fine here at 1680x1050 on real hardware.

Thank you.  I'll try that on my real 4.52 machine.
