Unfortunately Widescreen in WME is simply unpracticable with WME, simply because it doesn't do any scaling. I tested 1280x800 on many different screens/GPUs right now, and there are still some problems ( most were solved when WME handles 16:9 and 16:10 the same way, but not all ).

ok now this is getting confusing for me.

Ok let's say I create a game in 1024x768 using 1.8.9, I can be sure that'll display fine on 4:3, 5:3 and 16:10 monitors because WME can handle that just fine (by adding borders).

But if I create it in a 5:3 aspect ratio, like 1280x1024, the picture will not be distorted on 4:3 displays, right? And I may run into problems with 16:10 displays.

Creating a project in 1280x720 would display fine on all displays, because WME 1.8.9 would add borders (top and bottom) to the picture if the game is played on a monitor with an aspect ratio of 5:3 and 4:3 - right?

So, using WME 1.8.9, what would be the best res to create a new project with? Good old 1024x768?

You can choose any resolution you want. The whole discussion here is about the new "maintain AR" feature which depends on the resolutions different gpu/monitor combinations reports back as supported and not about any wme limitation (because there isn't one).

I recommend 1280x800

Mnemonic, will you build final (not beta) version of WME?

Yes, please. I hope the support of WME 1 don't stop over the next months...

If there are no fatal problems with 1.8.9, I can turn it into an "official" release.

If there are no fatal problems with 1.8.9, I can turn it into an "official" release.

I am getting a problem with trying to change the size of some of the layers in scenedit, or even deleting some. The scene screen goes white, so I close without saving to make sure nothing bad has happened. Then I get an error of "an invalid argument was encountered". This is the entry from the sceneedit log. I took out the file name for reasons of not revealing what it's for. I don't think this has started since this version.

Is the issue reproducible or is it random?
