Small Screen

Well, I started Oni and saw a small screen, and then I tried making it fullscreen. However, it was still small but with a black border around it. I tried changing the options, but only the window size changed, not the actual game screen. I'm sure there is a very simple solution for this...

EDIT: Tried changing my actual computer's screen size/resolution (using the "Run this program at 640x480 pixels" option), the same thing happened.

Re: Small Screen

Try changing the in game resolution, see if that helps.

Re: Small Screen

Yeah, only the window size changes. The game area is still the same size.

EDIT: Oh, nevermind, only the menu is small, the game is at the correct resolution. Anyway, is this common?

Re: Small Screen

Yep, the vanilla main menu is extremely small compared to the HD screens you can use in AE.

Re: Small Screen

One more thing: I cannot see the menu bar anymore. Even windowed, the window is bigger than the screen. If I try to change the resolution in-game, it says I need to restart Oni.

Re: Small Screen

Why can't you just restart Oni, when you change the resolution setting?


byproducts are fine, but where's the beef?

Re: Small Screen

The problem is: if I set it at the correct size, I can't see the menu. Otherwise, the screen is small. I cannot change the resolution after using the menu. In the end, I have to use "thedayismine" and it (sometimes) glitches my camera. By the way, is that uncommon? :3

Re: Small Screen

That's... weird.  Screenshots?  It's hard to picture what's happening.

Re: Small Screen

I'll post something tomorrow. Anyway, a little description of the glitch is: I type "thedayismine", I exit the 'menu', my camera starts going into a random direction slowly (usually left), in a line trajectory. The speed slowly accelerates and then, after 3 seconds or so, I begin seeing the entire level, and then I can see no more. I have to reload the level to fix it.

Re: Small Screen

Oh, that camera bug is a known issue.  Gumby or another Windows user might be able to tell you how to avoid it.  I'm more curious about your resolution issue.

Re: Small Screen

About that bug, use the button that generates ¨ to spawn were the camera is at, do it before you're camera goes out of the map though or you'll be facing a long fall followed by death.

Re: Small Screen

Oh, thanks, samer XD

Yoriko: I'm not sure if that is possible. The key wich generates ¨ needs to have Shift pressed too, but I'll try that.

I'll report soon with screenshots and results...

Re: Small Screen

Nope, by holding shift and pressing that button generates a ^

Re: Small Screen

Not sure what keyboard Lukas is using, but an English QWERTY keyboard has the tilde as the character above the '`'.  In other words, Shift+` is a ~.

Re: Small Screen

Well that button for me can generate a "¨" (normal) "^" (shift) "~" (shift+)

Re: Small Screen

The key above "tab" on a standard english qwerty keyboard is a grave accent, the tilde is made from toggling shift plus the grave accent.

Re: Small Screen

I'm using a Brazilian keyboard. ¨ is the same key as 6, but I have to hold down shift.

Re: Small Screen

Somewhere along the line, this conversation got incredibly confusing.  Did we actually solve any problems yet?

Re: Small Screen

Nope, let's top right now then :S
Clearly our keyboards are quite different.
