    There seems to be many followers of the 2D client.

    Can you please make the 2D play field 1024 x 768 or even 1280 x 1024 instead of 800 x 600. It's been 11 years.

    Thanks!

    Good idea.

    Lots of people are already playing like this anyway. There's a hack, innit.

    Way ahead of you on this one.

    The problem is, with the hack, while you are running, the four corners of the screen are grey and aren't fully colored our drawn properly.

    Since the creatures can seem to hit us with spells, and see us to target, from OFF the edges of the 800 x 600 window (and we can see them approaching, if by name only), it wouldn't hurt to use the same zoom level as 800 x 600, and just give us a 960 x 720 or 1024 x 768 game window.

    Done that way, it would require no new art - it would just let us see a couple steps farther out.

    I wasn't suggesting that you use the hack, you despicable cheater!

    Just that EA may aswell impliment it as a feature, to please the playerbase in general and in the process remove one of the many edges that cheaters have in PvP.

    Yeah, I have sent a couple PMs to the EA people who post here. I would love to see a larger playfield in the 2d client. This is my biggest beef with it on my big widescreen monitor.

    Just curious, why are you requesting this when you play KR anyway?

    Uh-oh!

    You've committed one of the cardinal sins of U.Hall - admitting to cheating!

    Now, rather than the standard "I disagree with you because", you have the automatic debating handicap of "... AND anyway you're a cheater so your opinion on anything is completely invalid!" :scholar:

    What do you think the SA client is made for?
    I doubt that anybody will ever enhance the old 2D client anymore.

    Because this is one of the main reasons keeping me from playing 2D.

    I also feel that slightly tweaking 2D will help business. I want UO to succeed.

    I know we are kidding around but I never said I played in 1024 x 768. Not once. I almost always play KR.

    Also, YOU are the first one to mention the hack.

    If they can do so without removing resources from new client developement then sure, 2d gives me a headache and last time I checked I couldn't run KR so I'm stuck with it.
