Hi,

When I start Ryzom on my netbook, at the character selection screen I can't click the play button because it is out of my screen. I changed the screen resolution in client_default.cfg to my screen resolution but this didn,t work.

Does anyone have an idea how to fix this?

I'd be cautious with using a netbook and its limited capacity to run a graphics-intensive application such as Ryzom. If your graphics card can't handle it, it will overheat fast.

I think only the character selection screen is fixed size. Once you go past that, the game itself will probably run at the resolution you set forcibly in client_default.cfg (although it might be reset by the client to a supported resolution when you close Ryzom).

There's mention of Alt-dragging to scroll the view panel. Perhaps that's the first thing to try.

If not, a quick search comes up with virtual screen system tweaks.

Let us know.

I managed to see the play button with Alt dragging! Thanks for the advice!

But you were also right about playing Ryzom on a netbook. FPS = very low so for me it is unplayable.

Leaves me to play on my desktop in the evening only.


Thanks! Maybe others have benefit from this post too.

another thing in addition to the char selection screen being a static size:

The changes in client_default.cfg are usually revoked upon game start (searching for changed files/updates)
client.cfg would be the one to use for config changes (if an option's not in the client.cfg just copy it from the client_default.cfg)

And the client.cfg can be protected from changes by the game if you want to
client_default.cfg
// If you set this variable to 1, your client.cfg will be overwritten when you quit the client.
// You will loose all the comments and identation in this file.
SaveConfig = 1;

Ah, didn't know about SaveConfig. Good to know.

I've asked a few times about why my resolution was reset every now and anon (unsupported 1920x1153 is often reset to 1024x768, leading to a restart, then resetting all windows to their proper locations again). I ended up resorting to a shell script to hammer in the values.

And yes, it's client.cfg ;)
