Official version with higher resolution

Post by vahv »

Hello,

I'm not sure if I'm being stupid, but is there any version where window size can be changed and records made with it are accepted.
Arbiter, Minesweeper X and Viennasweeper all seem to have fixed size windows which are absolutely tiny and unplayable for me on a big screen.
Wouldn't want to change screen resolution every time I'm gonna play either. Is there some easy solution for this?

Unfortunately, no. I have a branch where I started working on this, but it's way more work than it sounds like it should be. One big issue in particular are replay formats that just assume 16x16 squares...

viewtopic.php?f=26&t=1301 <- a thread I started about the issue a while ago :)

In any case, for now, I know of no better way than to adjust screen res, unfortunately :/

If you don't need the version to be official, I can recommend playing on minesweeper.online instead, which plays almost identically to official versions.
Don't anthropomorphize computers - they don't like it.

Ah, well that's a shame. Guess I'll stick with unofficials then.

Thanks for info!
