For those interested, a friend took some snapshots of what UO looks like with higher resolution options.

First picture is of the standard 800x600 max window resolution

It's a shame EA doesn't introduce options like that, so people don't have to resort to using third party apps to boost the resolution manually.

The client obviously isn't programmed to support such reolutions, cause the edges have dark grey areas, which I assume means those areas wouldn't show moving npc's, players etc.

That is really good. The resolution (or lack of) in 2d was one of the reasons I moved to KR- but those pics are sweet :)

The main problem I encountered with resolution adjustments is that larger ones have a very clear effect on performance, particularly the ones where you can see gray area in the corners. Still, the fact that I could do that was amazing to me nonetheless.
Still we loom in the mists as the ages roll away,
And we say of our folk, "they are here!"
That they built us and they died and you'll not be knowing why,
Save we stand on the bare plains of Wiltshire.

Side note: The top "toolbar" looks like UOAssist to me, which would be legal...

These screenshots were taken in Lord British Castle for a reason : it will work rather well with statics because you have them in your client. However with all dynamic objects it will be a mess. Particularily in housing areas.
Just run with such a resolution and you'll see undrawn areas and houses will either pop-up in the middle or if you add more to house cache, you will have poor performances (depending on your connection and your cpu).

If it hasn't been done more than 640x480 to 800x600, that is not in order to annoy players with wide monitors. :)


And hi Tabbitha BTW :)

These were taken with the most common UOA clone, which is standard fare on freeshards. There is also a custom client out there that can display UO at any resolution with no clipping whatsoever, but I shall not name names.

It's amazing what people are doing out there.
