    Screen resolution when playing SDL on laptop

    Post by Thomas on Sun Jul 13, 2014 4:12 am

    I remember a couple of days ago, zooming around Leiche Soldat trying to progress - playing it the second time now. Yesterday I wanted to move on, but as I opened the EXE, all of a sudden my screen looked like this:



    Does anybody know what to do here? This also happens with MapEdit. My older Toshiba laptop which I normally use for modding and playing has just "passed away" - that is, the power adapter after 3 mends finally broke, so it no longer works. I have no place to do my Wolfing! Help me please!scared

    Hmm - looks like your laptop doesn't like running in low resolutions. Try running it at 960x600, maybe? It won't be perfect but it should be better than that.

    This is a Dell Latitude as well, so I'll check for that. Either way this is my work computer, but I use it solely now as my Toshiba's power adapter finally gave up and broke in half (it had been mended a handful of times). Perhaps I'll need to use my TV again as monitor (no errors happen there, and windowed mode is OK on a 32" screen) now that the cup finals are over lol.
