Hi All

I have been playing with QVGA and True VGA and there is just a too big Gap between the two
One is 2 Big and the other 2 Small
previously on my Jasjar I set the resolution to 144 (Slap Bam in the Middle)
The problem with this is all the VGA Stuff as well as the most of the icons is missing but ..... IT IS REALLY the best RES to work, not too smal or big the sliders etc also looks just right

Shouldn't we start looking at developing for 144 Resolution and get it over and done with once and for all

OK - It's been a long time since I've done this, where do we start!!!!!!!

VGA 128dpi
Hi Skillie,

144dpi resources are hard to get so it would be quite a lot of work. I can easily provide you with 128dpi resources because they are supported by Microsoft.
I will provide you with the necessay files within the next 2 days.

Cheers,
Tobias

VGA 128
This is the installation for VGA 128dpi. Give it a try. :) This one is for English devices. If you need any other language let me know.

If you don't need the video call function then you can fix the phone by setting the registry entry

HKLM\Security\Phone\Skin\Enabled=0 and perform a soft reset.

Have fun

PS: When I will find the time I will provide a little program to switch betwen 192dpi <-> 128dpi <-> 96dpi

VGA 128dpi
I'm doing PocketPC development device driver development since 2002, so it was not a big deal
There are some minor issues with some dialogs, like the wireless config dialog but I will fix that when I have some time. Actually I got the resources from the QVGA 320x320 emulator, which runs at 128dpi.

Cheers,
Tobias

I have been playing with it - my Phone works but the other usual stuff not
but i am so impressed with this I will actually keep it on this resolution
A lot of work has gone into fixing the the cosmetics i'm sure to find the right files for this as well


From now on I am recommending this to all who complain about big Icons \(or too smal ones )
Excellent Work !!!!!!!

I bet this will be part of WM7!!!!!!

Cheers

If you uninstall it again you will be back on 192dpi (factory default).

I tried this utility quickly. Initially seemed ok. Today screen looked good as did the program files.

However when I tried to start Excel, nothing seemed to happen at all except the machine was apparently stuck on something. It stopped doing anything beyond putting the word excel in the title bar. Still saw the 3 pocket office icons on the screen and that's all that happened. Had to manually stop Excel with the memory tool. Uninstalled the vga cab and all is back to normal, including a working Excel.

I tried this. Excel and word worked perfectly for me.

The backlight glider also has no problem. HTC homeplug is perfect.

Phone application works although it leaves a space at the bottom. Also,I can't see the dialed number if it is not one stored in the contact database. Any way it still beats VJBigphone hands down.

Comm manager is messed up still.

Standard keyboard are too small, as expected. However the Tengo keyboard is still prefect.

All icons on tasksbar are perfect. Today screen icons are completely perfect.

The beautiful standardcalculator skin is gone, replaced by ugly looking round lines for the keys. But this is no big deal. I don't need the standard calculator anyway. HiCalc is the way to go, and HiCalc works well, other than a little gap at the top.

This resolution is way way better IMHO than ozvga or mvrtrurvga. The size of the taskbar and bottom bar is a lot more pleasing, and blend in with the application better, since theit sizes does not contrast too sharply from the button sizes of traditional applicationapplications.

The only real problem is, my navigation software iGO my way is completely messed up. What a pity. I like this resolution very much,but would hate to have to uninstall then soft reset to drive. After driving,I would have to install then soft reset to get back to this.

Is it possible to have a program to toggle,at least to remove the need for installing and uninstalling? I suppose it is not possible to avoid the soft reset?
