In a paragraph here:
"Also, LCDs have only one "natural" resolution, limited by
the number of pixels physically built into the display. If you want to move
up to, say, 1024 by 768 on an 800-by-600 LCD, you have to emulate it with software, which will work only at certain resolutions." (found at PC-World.com http://www.pcworld.com/heres_how/article/0,1400,15112,00.html
PC World refers to emulating higher resolutions on monitors than are possible.
I was wondering if anybody knew of a program that does this. I have a CRT display capable of 1024x728 and I would like to do one of the following:
Have software that will emulate a resolution equal to or greater than 1600x800 resolution on my monitor (preferably 2048x1456)
Have software that splits my monitor up into quarters and emulates a screen on each of them, so I can display a resolution of at least 800x600 on each of these quarter-screens.
Colour depth would have to be at least 256 colours, preferably at least 65k colours, though 32bit colour would be nice :-)
My monitor is a Mitsubishi Merlin attached to S3 Savage 3D w/ 8mb video ram if that matters. (which it shouldn't...)
