Need picture size opinion

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Thu Nov 20, 2014 11:49 pm

Been away for a long time and starting Construct 2 seems like a new experience. So much has changed since Construct 1.
Anyway I started to work on an old project and and wounding what screen size I should use. The big memory hog will be 10 or 11 event sheets with full pictures backgrounds. This will be a logic game with very little animation.

2160×1440 images seems too big but that is what my surface Pro 3 screen is. If I drop it down to 1280x800 that would reduce files size immensely (a 1280x800 at 96dpi png picture is about 640kb). Also what dpi should I make my images for a 216 ppi screen?

So my questions are:
What is a good screen size for an 11 picture game.
What dpi should I make my images.
Can I make this a single file game?

Thanks
