I suggest we have MM and others put their effort into making LD and Berseker work at a higher or multiple resolutions, rather than spend their time making this change to Soldat.

This sounds reasonable, but since Berserker and LD are not supposed to be clones or re-dos of Soldat, they won't replace it.

Noes.. It would buff all long ranged weapons which most people who really care about WM simply don't want.

Exactly.

Here are some screenshots to make my suggestions clearer (click to enlarge):

After playing 3 years with the "lame" 640*480 resolution and I won't get used to any other resolution anymore with soldat, maybe for the newcomers, but at least not for me.

I support Gotfryd.

It would be much better. Especially as a pro for registered users.
The graphics can be arranged into folders for each of the screen resolutions, and the folder that corresponds to the config would be loaded. Also it would only need to put a burden on Enesce for the coding, which probably won't really be too much. Modders that are omfgawesomebbq like dairy could do the new gosteks.

I think modders would like this too, as they would be able to put more detail into their mods, so weapons would look awesome, and shells wouldn't be a 2x3 pixel yellow thing coming out of the breech (which you can't see atm).

So, yeah, F12.

Ahah! I think this is the core of our problem. People just don't like change. Well, you'll have to get used to the new maps and tweaks with the next version of Soldat. You've managed with the weapons mods in the past, so this should be insignificant.

And Gotfryd, you're hijacking my thread! :P I totally understand your suggestion, but it's just too much work for the programmers.

Also, I haven't seen a PC without support for 800x600 in years. The last one I saw was actually an artifact from the past I dug up from my grandfather's junk. My grandfather! And hardware? Virtually every PC I've played Soldat on, even the crappy ones at the public library, have over 60fps. You have no evidence what-so-ever to hold the rest of the Soldat world back because of hardware concerns. This argument is in it's grave, fellows.

FliesLikeABrick, I doubt you have to worry about Soldat overtaking Link-Dead or Berserker in priority (or popularity) Enesce and ChrisGBK have Soldat covered. We both know MM is hard at work on the right things :)

If this were to get implemented, 640x480 could still be selectable for people with lower-end systems. Everybody wins.

I use 640*480 and sometimes when there's much scenery my Soldat starts lagging, so lagg will be bigger with higer resolutions

EH is right, any game that runs on 480 resolution in 2008 is just a joke.. but in fact 800x600 wont even be big enough, id say.

Golden words, I'd say? This pretty much solves every problem there could possibly be with changing the default resolution settings which, by the way, I'm all for.
I fucking miss all you cunts!

No, echo/seth, that 640*480 you say wouldn't be like the current one, it'd be even smaller in terms of gfx (if this were to be implemented).

And Gotfryd, you're hijacking my thread! :P
All right, I apologize. I'll stop forcing my idea and focus on original topic.

Ahah! I think this is the core of our problem. People just don't like change.
I agree that this is sometimes a little annoying.

If this were to get implemented, 640x480 could still be selectable for people with lower-end systems. Everybody wins.
If by "this" you mean original ElephantHunter's idea, it will be unfair, because people with lower-end systems using 640x480 resolution will be seeing less then ones with 800x600, and they'll be handicapped :(

but in fact 800x600 wont even be big enough, id say.
But resolution higher then 800x600 implemented in way that ElephantHunter suggests would make everything really very small, to small to play for some people :(

What would be wrong with keeping the graphics as they are, but seeing a little further?

You dont get to see further in CoD4 for example, why would you in Soldat?

I don't understand your point. So you're saying that because other games are dull and stagnant, we shouldn't be innovative? That we shouldn't implement features because they aren't totally necessary? Interesting.

No, that's not what I ment. What I ment is increase the resolution without increasing the line of sight.

...Soldat can already increase the resolution without increasing the line-of-sight, and it looks quite terrible. Did you misunderstand the purpose of this thread?
