Unread postby gichehoo » Sun Sep 24, 2006 4:31 am

Hi, could someone tell me if the octane with an MXE card can do 1440 x 900 resolution? I am looking to get a widescreen 19" tft monitor and I wanted to know if it could do this resolution before i bought it.

Welcome gichehoo

I don't believe it's a native resolution, but custom resolutions can be built with the Video Format Compiler <aka vfc>. There is a nekochan topic on wide screen formats for MXE graphics you might find useful <you can find more info by entering "vfc" in the nekochan search tool>.

I'd also check to see that the FP you're thinking of supports SOG <sync-on-green>.
