What aspect ratio are you using for your games?

Chat about anything not covered in these forums, but keep it civil!

An interesting point came up in another thread regarding aspect ratio. So thought I'd make a poll about it, so we could perhaps gauge which aspect the users are using or plan to use.

This is not a thread to complain or beg for changes in construct to better deal with aspect ratio. Do that in the help section, lol. This is just to see which ratio you are using or plan to use for your game or games.

If you happen to be using something other than those in the poll, explain below. I know a few retro games did have curious aspect ratios, so it's always possible someone is doing a game that doesn't follow one of the two "standards".


Edit: And don't turn this into "I looked at Wikipedia, saw the other aspect ratios so am going to try sound clever by saying you missed a load of them", we know there's lots and lots of others and it always ends up on a page about sex.. Incidentally... Aspect Ratio -> Aspect Ratio (image) -> Anamorphic Widescreen -> Star Wars -> Princess Leia Organa -> Carrie Fisher -> When Harry Met Sally -> Fake Orgasm -> Orgasm -> Breasts

16:9 is the way thing will be going imho
but voting looks neck and neck so far ;-)

All my games are made in 4:3 so everyone can use them

Using:
16:9
1920 x 1080

most games i make are 4:3, and sometimes i set it to 16:10 because my monitor is 1440x900

i dont really make games that are in HD resolutions though, i find its far too much work to do the gfx and my little 8300 gs cant handle much at that resolution so i tend to make things at a lowly 640x480 or even a 320x240.

Hmm don't know, try again later maybe. Not sure why it would be doing that unless you have noscript or something running?

I usually stick to 1024x768 since most people run at least that resolution or higher on their PC.

Anyone who doesn't, doesn't deserve to play games anyway.
