you dont NEED to have a min res of 1280x1024 you can get a layout from

here http://www.unrender.com/files/1024x768.zip but if you google it theres loads

1280 X 1024 is probably the most stupid reselution for a grafic program any way, as almost all monitors are 1:1,333 in aspect and 1280 X 1024 is 1:1,25.
So all your work will be sqused and look fat. the right aspect is at 1280x960, i have until now only seen one monitor whith a aspect of 1:1,25 and thats the MAC 17" studio display.Edited by NoBody on Mar 25 2004, 11:30:59

At least they're not asking for 1600x1200.

My god, my monitor's maximum resolution is 1280x1024 and it's microscopic, butI think I'll get that layout anyways. Btw, thanks for hosting this. I'm getting a nice 80k/s on my DSL line and it should be done in a few minutes :)

normally i woulda bitched at this kinda res too, but then i got a 17" LCD and now i run windows in 1280x1024...

Hehe, I got 1600x1200 no bother :D
Has to be the only program iv ever seen that lists "Three-button mouse" in the min requirements...

But I have l22t 64kbps (up to 128kbps in at night)

And you can use H-Size and V-Size buttons on your monitor ;)Edited by InternetNightmare on May 17 2004, 20:00:35
