Not sure where this post should go ...

Maybe my eyes are getting old but I find it difficult to see all of the detail in the matrix screen shots shown for each game in the Matrix store. Why are the screenshots only one quarter the size of the screen? Can Matrix consider making them bigger so us potential buyers can wallow in the detail for a while when making our purchasing decision? I was looking at the screenshot with the Campaigns of Napoleon battle details but couldn't understand what it all meant so not yet sure I want that game.

Right click on image -> open it in new tab and hit ctrl+ (or cmd+ for OSX) in order to increase.

The one thing I don't get is, even there are so many oldtimers here, playing wargames for more than two decades, they still didn't figure out the basics of operating systems.

You might get it if you concentrate on the big clue in your post. "OLDTIMERS"

I know because I'm one of them. That and the drinking of course.

I'm sorry I see you're from Iowa. All your pro team players still actually husking corn instead of playing football?

Although Iowa folks do like Wisconsin. We know because most of them and the Illini come north every summer for vacation just to see trees and lakes instead of cornfields.

You're adding a not needed step. Just hit ctrl+ zooms the pic. And yes, I'm an "Oldtimer"!

Also, Ohio State all the way.....

Correct - guilty as charged. How do you right click if using a Mac?

Okay Treale just works - although the bigger image is easier to see, its a bit blurred so would be better if there is an option for a bigger image (without losing any sharpness).

Just out of curiosity, I looked at the Campaigns of Napoleon map to test this and noticed that Wessex was east of Sussex?? What's that all about?

... which is what I meant but I expressed it poorly. What's the point of zooming in if the text becomes blurred and unreadable?

We'll look in to it guys - there used to be a limitation on size but I thought we had fixed it.

Good suggestion. If I were Matrix/Slitherine I would have the highest rez screens available. Often they are the first one sees when a new title appears.

That would take a left-click first, considering you want to resize the particular image and not the whole products page.

That and the other obvious solution-do as I have done, get a 120" computer monitor.

If bandwidth is a concern, there should be an option to "download High Rez Images" while keeping a smaller image as the default display.

I will add to this thread, that I've pretty much given up trying to judge screen shots from the promotion pages, and wait for someone to post an AAR in the games dedicated forum to check out screen shots.

Currently they are simply too small for me to read most of the screens.

Thanks
Rick

Hey. This is high tech. It has a floppy disk and everything.

Don't be jealous.

*Checks Swatch* Now if you don't mind, I have to get in my beetle wagon and get my polyester suit with the large lapels to the cleaners before Different Strokes comes on.

Where did I put my Tab cola? Ah, right here by my knee high, 3 striped tube socks.

Now this is a great screenshot!!!

That's what I'd like to see when evaluating a game.

We've increased the size of the screenshots but this can only fix the problem going forwards. Old screenshots cannot be upscaled

What? I couldn't hear you. My hearing and vision is going. But, in addition to violins on television, I'd like to have bigger screenshot uploads on the WiTP:AE forum.
