Too big and skins don't help

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Davidoc, Feb 3, 2004.

  1. Everything in this forum is too big; not enough fits on the screen.

    I'm not really conservative and I like change, but this is one change I find hard to get used to. Usually skins will adjust layout and size so you can pick one that works for you, but these just alter the color scheme.

    Is there anyone else who feels the same way?

    I just wanted to say that I do not feel as you do. It fits on my screen just fine.

    Try setting your screen res to higher than 240X380??? ;)
  4. Everything's realative. What's cool on most forums is too big here. I'm not gonna make the rest of my computing **** smaller just for talkbass. Conformity has its place.

    Looks fine to me. I thought that all civilised persons used 1024x768 nowdays?

    Seriously, if it is a problem, post a thread in Paul's Shack about it!

    Hopefully paul will add a skin which is just the same aesthetically as the old board, then we would have all the new features minus the colour, format change etc.

    Well, scroll all the way down... on the bottom left corner is a drop down menu which probably has the name Talkbass 2004 on it. Click that and select Legacy. It is pretty much the old color scheme.

    Yes. It just isn't 800x600 friendly, even with the most recent adjustments. I tried 1024x768 for a while, but it just doesn't cut it on a 17" monitor (and my wife hates it). Not a show stopper, but it's annoying.
  11. Well, I'm running 1024x768 for my desktop res. I don't mind the color at all, color change is good. I just wish there was a way to make for fit on one screen. I'd up my resolution, but then everything else is too small.

    This isn't anything major though, just a suggestion. Some skin systems let the skinner change size, format etc.

    Im on 800X600 and rarely find something too big.

    Only cases I can think of are when large pictures are posted.
