My new widescreen monitor has just landed, ironically a few hours before im due to get married .

can some please tell me the settings in the shortcut to have a widescreen windowed game? Ive tried the setting in the whats new file but the py of 1050 sees some the screen off the desktop. Im running the monitor at 1920 by 1080 resolution.

thanks

If you're at 1920 by 1080, then py is probably 1080, perhaps?

Try 1600x1024 for windowed AE, I'm running at 1920x1080 too.

It's her wedding.

It's your monitor.

She always wins.

Think we all have to feel a bit sorry for her ,
Here she is , few hours before the wedding, getting dressed up and a hairdo to look at her best on this big day
and the guy she marries is trying to get his monitor working in the hope of crancking out one more pbem turn
Come to think of it, probebly have to feel sorry for my own wive to

Cantona,
Many of the new wide screen monitors come set to TV mode by default as they function in that role as well. If you switch it to PC mode the dimensions you specify should provide an exact fit. If you don't have a manual you can usually find how to switch it on-line.

In the meanwhile, don't forget your wedding.

This is what I was thinking too!!

What concentration! What dedication!

What a waste of prime drinking time . . .

That reminds me of my current opponent. In the middle of June I got a message from him, apologizing that he couldn't send me a turn that evening, as his wife had just gone into labor with their first kid ...

My wife tells me that what's hers is hers and what's mine is ours.  Of course I always get the last word in...Yes, dear! 

Today is, in fact, my 29th wedding anniversary.  I got married out of boot camp and am still going strong.  Two boomerang kids, 2 dogs, 8 cats and a house with no mortgage.

Congrats on your day! One more year and you get the T-shirt. Or, she gets the T-shirt. Whichever.

BTW, the cat total is stunning. I've always thought that cats are geometric. Two cats are like four cats. Three cats are like nine cats.

You have 64 cats, dude.
