Higher Resolutions OK?
« on: November 19, 2018, 08:26:18 AM »

Good afternoon all. The game looks fascinating, but based on various bits and bobs I've read, I'm worried that it won't play well with my 2560x1440 setup. Are my concerns misplaced?

I've run at that res without issue; it's actually quite nice since so much of the combat play field fits on the screen at once.

Hi! Personally, for your setup, I'd run it at full screen at a reduced resolution, so it upscales. At full res, some of the text will be a bit small, so that just depends on how you feel about that.

I have a growth in my eye, which apart from being *squick*, means that small text is anathema. Thanks for the reply, I'll give it a whirl and see how it goes!

I'm playing at 2560x1080 on my 3440x1440 monitor, works nicely except the first time I tried this the game glitched out, but it's worked fine every other time.

I have to play on 1920x1080 resolution on my 4k monitor. The game does not offer any bigger resolution.

Are there any plans to add 4k support with UI scaling? The game would look quite a bit nicer, with all the ship graphics and effects in full resolution.

I run 3440x1440 as is. Text is small, but combat/strategic view are awesome.

If I had to nitpick, you don't get sounds in combat for events on the far edges of screen, and can see opponents hidden in fog of war (beyond radar area).

I'm playing at 2560x1440, full screen, full resolution. No issues at all, including with text or UI size. Of course, the 27" monitor helps with that.

1920x1200 -> 2560x1600
Text at native resolution is too small for me. UI scaling would be nice. -_-
