Custom resolutions?

Postby mario64 » Tue Jan 23, 2018 12:30 am

Is it possible to add custom resolutions to nglide? I'm using a Surface Book 2 15" which has a 3:2 aspect ratio. I'd prefer to run games at 1920x1280 instead of 1920x1080. Windows does show this resolution but it's missing in nglide configurator. Thanks

1920x1280 on a 3240x2160 screen? The more optimal choice would be to use your desktop resolution with aspect ratio correction. You can do that by selecting "Resolution: By desktop" and "Aspect ratio: Preserve original" in nGlide configurator.

Correct. 1920x1280 is the closest to 1080p you can get on a Surface Book. I don't want to run native res due to A) performance reasons and B) tiny text and other graphical anomalies from using such a high resolution

Then a better choice would be to use 1920x1440 (native 640x480 * 3).

This doesn't apply to nGlide. The size of a UI will remain the same.
