Before you Buy: UI Previews by Resolution / Font
« on: January 06, 2016, 07:15:12 AM »

Depending on your eyesight, or the size of your preferred gaming machine's screen, Cogmind's UI might be a little too dense (small/medium-sized laptops can be a problem for some).

As a reference for those who haven't bought yet, I've prepared a new page through which you can see what Cogmind's current* version will look like on your screen of choice, allowing you to even preview all the available font options for a given resolution.

This new guide is linked from the buy page, but I think a dedicated post for it here on the Support board would be useful as well.

*Note: "Current" because there are changes under consideration that could somewhat increase the font size restriction imposed on each resolution. I'll be exploring that topic in the next blog post. That blog post is now here.

Hahaha... hey! That's not an approved device!

Wait a minute, that's not even just an image you've got there, is it? The cursor's showing... are you actually somehow running this on an S3???

this is cogmind, full contollable via blutooth keyboard.
and yes on s3 but this must be a rooted device,
u need a  linux-distro (ARMv7),  qemu to boot
a second distro (i386)with wine-support,
busybox, ssh, vnc...it works :D

(I just play around and all over it's very unsafe and risky)

Hello All,
Clicking on the UI res/font preview, once you click a resolution and font.....you can click your mouse and it seems to zoom.  What is this zoom feature for in the image preview?

i'm running 1920x1080

Welcome! That's not a feature of the image or website--that's how your browser treats images that are larger than its viewable area. Modern browsers generally shrink an image so that its entire dimensions are visible. (If you resize your browser window you can see this in action.)

In your case, with 1920x1080, assuming you click on this image preview, for example, the game will be the size you see when "zoomed in" after clicking on it (because when "zoomed in" it disregards the bounds of your browser window and shows you Cogmind's true fullscreen appearance at that dimension, i.e. what you'll actually be playing at).

Hope that clears everything up, let me know if you have any other questions :D
