  1. So i have recently gone through a complete fuddle of display setting options to get the client to scale properly to 1320x1080 requirements of the client, I've had to resort to my OS display options reducing it from 300% scaling down to 150%, this is absolutely ludacris i have to sacrifice my own computer scaling display to play your games client.

    Therefore, i ask that you implement display resolution options so i can return to using my laptops full display capabilities.

    The zoom in & out feature is simply not good enough as it doesn't remember what you set it too

    I should of mentioned that this is to do with displaying the game through my TV via the laptop

  2. This is primarily due to the age of the game, combined with excuses and a fair bit of incompetence from the devs (mostly from the original, but current as well).

    This game is so old, that 99% of the original creators & caretakers of DarkOrbit no longer work there, and still runs on fairly old code. On top of that, this is still a Flash Player game (hence the requirement of downloading a custom browser). The game was originally designed to run at a fixed resolution, that can now be scaled based on the monitor's size (not exactly its resolution).

    In order for you to view it how you wish, you will need to first, adjust it to a resolution that you would like--720p, 1080p, etc. After that, set the resolution scaling to 100%.

    Outside of this, there is no way to adjust the resolution in-game, and there never will be.
