Hello All,
Does anyone have experience of playing IL2 on a TFT LCD monitor. Any comments on their suitability for the game?
Thanks in advance.

I have/use a Samsung 192N 19" TFT LCD. I set my refresh at 75hz instead of the default 60 and run the native res for the game (1024x768x32). it runs well for me. In fact i'm thinking seriously about getting a Samsung 213T in the near furure.

Hitachi 17" CML174SXWB panel here, native 1280x1024, 16ms refresh, works just grand with Forgotten Battles after setting the resolution in the .ini file.

Cost about 350.00GBP, no dead pixels, vibrant colours. Very quick refresh, no ghosting. Wouldn't ever go back to a CRT.

Cheers, Spinner

Been using 17" AOC for 18+ months at 1280x1024x32 on 75Hz. FB looks and runs fab on it. The best upgrade you can make!

Been using a 17" ADI A715 TFT for about 6 months now,as long as you use a TFT in its' native resolution (usually 1280 x 1024) perfect clarity is the order of the day.
Watching my son play FB on his (my old) CRT is like watching coloured smudges through a goldfish bowl http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif You'll never go back!

Sharp 17" LCD here, works great. I run FB at 1024x768 with a very nice picture. No dead pixels, 20ms response with no ghosting, great color and sharpness. Eyestrain is also reduced.

Did not really like LCD panels for gaming/sim. I run a Viewsonic G90fb 19" and I love it. Pretty cheap to boot....about $ 200-225 USD

Here is the desc.:

The ViewSonic G90f and G90fb represent an exciting technology milestone by incorporating a PerfectFlat screen with shadow mask technology. These 19.0" (18.0" viewable) monitors feature SuperClear technology and an ultra-fine 0.21mm horizontal (0.25mm diagonal) dot pitch for superior display performance. And their PerfectFlat screen reduces light reflection for edge-to-edge precise images, sharp focus and fine image clarity. For the demanding user in graphic design, CAD/CAM and general business applications, you can now find a shadow mask PerfectFlat solution in the ViewSonic G90f and G90fb.


Cheers,

Does FB properly support 17" or 19" LCD's 1280 * 1024 res? (I mean, by adding a line to conf.ini)
I don't want any blurring.

so, if it supports well, screen will be widen up and down and you can see more gauges. right?

I'm always praying my 19" CRT to break. It's really tough. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Yes, yes, yes absolutly no problem, no blurring. Just put a hammer through that old dinosaur of a CRT!

im not so convinced on the whole tft/crt argument... i find a lot of tft screens don't give an especially clear picture... and in terms of bang for buck, unless you need portability or have a lack of space, id rather have a 19 inch iyama crt (pure flat screen, near perfect image) than a 17 inch tft, which would cost more anyway and be less visible from any angle. TFT's... if you can afford a good one, get it, but if your on any kind of budget go with a big beautiful Iyama.

in UK prices from scan.co.uk

LN4766 19" Iiyama CRT Vision Master Pro 455 (MM904UT) Hightbrightness Unipitch
129.99
152.74

19" Iiyama TFT PLE481S-W Ivory Analogue, OSD, DVI, SXGA+ Speakers
368.50
432.99


Id rather have the big monitor and then buy 280 worth of other upgrades, which would do more to improve the look of games than a TFT.

I'd like to talk to someone who has tried FB on a 42 inch plasma. I think they will be in the $1500. range in another year.. That would be a great price compared to $8,000. a few years ago..

Ive been using a samsung 15" tft for over a year now and no problems at all.
They have come along way from the "snail's trails" of the old laptop days. The picture is better is some ways to the old crt's and the colour is ALOT better.

Once you get a tft you will not go back. Plus you can have some desk space back !



Eh, mates! What's the good word?
