Strange thumbnail proportions
« on: February 20, 2013, 05:10:27 PM »

I have this strange problem with my saved games thumbnails.

I've set the thumbnail size in Program Manager to 176 x 132 pixels. When I run the game in Windowed mode, and make saves, the thumbs are stored as 176 x 132 images, just as expected. When saving when the game is run in full screen, however, the thumbs turn out rectangular and condensed (132 x 132 pixels): http://www.mdna-games.com/misc_files/savethumbs.jpg.

When I run the game in screen resolution, the thumbs turns out window boxed in 93 x 93 pixels: http://www.mdna-games.com/misc_files/savethumbs2.jpg.

In other words, it's as if the thumbs condence the whole active area on the screen, rather then the gaming area.

While this isn't a big problem, I'd appreciate any help on how to get around it.

Sorry, I forgot to mention that. Yes, it's when "mantain aspect ratio" is checked that the problem appears.

That's by design, I'm afraid. The thumbnail screenshot captures the entire game view, including the black bars used for aspect ratio correction.

I kind of figured that. And as I said, it's certainly not a problem. I had to ask to make sure that there wasn't an easy workaround though. Thanks for making this clear.
