  • Need info: What screen resolution are you using...

    I badly need you all to help me by telling me what screen resolutions you are using, I'm trying to compile a list for an upcoming tutorial.

              BUT.......use 800x600
              for projects or full screen because
              most are still using it.

                  My first computer, an Apple ][+ in 1978 was 279 X 159 in hi-res mode or 40 X 30 in lo-res mode.

                    Hey, there is really no need for that kind of unfounded boasting on this board, Corey. Some of us poor kids had to use Commodore 64s with dataset tape drives (the kind that used audio tapes). It took 1 birthday and 2 Christmases until I could afford a "floppy drive". Anyone else still have 200+ 5.25" C64 floppies in the basement?

                      At least you HAD a Datasette. I had to type my programs back in every time I shut the **** thing off. [img]/ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

                      After a year and a half of that, I got a box of 5.25" disks from my aunt and uncle for Christmas. I remember thanking them for getting me something for the computer, "but I don't have a disk drive. Well, maybe I'll be able to use them some day."

                      When we got back from my grandparents' farm, there was a big box under our tree at home...my parents had bought me a floppy drive.

                      Ah, the smell of styrofoam and plastic. [img]/ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

                        my first comp had a Cyrix 200MhZ and 16 mB of ram and a 1 Gig hard drive. But I guess you "Classic" folk don't need to hear my sob story as I bought my first comp in 1996 as opposed to your guys 1986...

                        1024 X 768 for me at the office and 800 X 600 at home

                          Atari 400, 1983, I believe. We eventually got the tape drive, too, although it only really worked maybe 75% of the time. The keyboard was flat, as if someone simply laid a sheet of plastic over a circuit board. The programs ran from cartridge - I had BASIC on a cartridge. I remember being jealous of the kid down the street who got the 800 (dual cartridges and a real keyboard).

                          Still they were great gaming machines for their day! Joust? Space Invaders? Asteroids? Pac Man? I really sucked at Centipede.

                            The first one i used was my Dad's C64, but the first one I owned was a new Commodore 128.
                            It had just arrived on the market and cost me 328.00
                            I got a special deal on the 1541 5.25" floppy drive and dot matrix printer as an 'all in 1 box special' for 199.99
                            I later sold the floppy drive for 200 (to some poor soul) and the printer for 100
                            Dont remember what happened to the C128. I always remember the graphics on the 'very latest' games for the 128 'blew me away' coz they looked better than anything else I had seen on a home computer (as I recall) ... and that would have been in 1985? or there abouts [life slips by].

                              The "Hplot" thickens (Apple users will get that one)

                              Whatever happened to good old GOSUB...
