billboard is so stubborn

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone :hello:

I apologize if this posted before I mean I have searched for 9 days using every possible search method with no luck or straight forward clue of how to solve this, and now I'm on the verge of going insane trying to solve this problem for weeks.

Look at the screenshot and feed me back if you know how to make the billboard picture resize to 1024x768 or to 800x600 regardless of the stage the batch will kick in.

I have succeeded of integrating my drivers using method 2, and also went great with nlite RC7 … but still I get the same result "the screen respond to the batch but the billboard remains at the ugliest resolution in the world 640x480".

The code I'm using

@echo off

1365VidChng.exe 800X600X32@1 -q
1365VidChng.exe 800X600X32@85 -q
1365VidChng.exe 800X600X32@70 -q
1365VidChng.exe 800X600X32@60 -q

1365VidChng.exe 1024X768X32@1 -q
1365VidChng.exe 1024X768X32@85 -q
1365VidChng.exe 1024X768X32@70 -q
1365VidChng.exe 1024X768X32@60 -q


Have you ever succeeded doing the billboard working on higher resolution in real PC OR Virtual Machine is it possible or do I have to redesign my billboard down to 640x480 to fit ok with xplode,because I'm using xplode to integrate 50 software.

remember the batch is kicking but the billboard is so stubborn.....help

Hi TD I appreciate your respond indeed:

Well I used WinntbbuED.exe to build my billboard for the flexibility and the ease it provides, so I don't think that I would need to do anything with the size of the wallpaper because the original resolution of the wallpaper is already 1024x768, and it should resize automatically with the screen ....that's why I'm going insane I don't know if I should just deal with 640x480 and redesign my xplode to fit there or wait for some nice smart buddy to help

help :o
