What screen resolution do you run ?

Im designing a web page in Flash , and was just wondering what screen resolution you run ..

Since getting my 24inch LED I run 1920 x 1080 ...

And I just thought , what screen resolution should I design for  800 x 600 [ surely dated by now ] 

 

 This is where my project is was  [ 100% made in flash ] need flash to view it ..  

 Always remember , the easiest thing in the world to do , is to expel hot air from your lungs and through some vocal chords ..
The resulting sound may , or may not be worth listening too ….

I am using 1024x768 on a 22inch LCD so I can see the screen with my poor eyesite.

I always use native resolution, 1680x1050 right now on my Dell 22".

 

@s1mp13m4n

Have you tried just increase font size (+ set display to native resolution)? Don't know what OS do you use, but AFAIK it should be only a few clicks in almost all OSs.

I am using Linux Mint.  I am using the 1024x768 with 16pt fonts over the stock 10pt fonts.

Have you tried a bigger res. with, lets say, 22 pt font? Ok, I admit that perhaps with bigger font it will look quite badly (buttons, windows and so on) :~

BTW, Matt, not your case, but you can always use dynamic size, I mean you can use "%" instead of X pixels (when you define body, head, or any other part size. Can you do that in Flash?)

1024 X 768 on CRT monitor-all I care about, anything else is too small. Widescreen is for the rich.

I was going to do that next - ATM its part of a school project [ design a web page / site in Flash ] , but % is next ...  But I still wonder what screen res I should aim for as a minimum . 

As when it re-sizes things have a tendency to go whack , especially when down sizing .

Was done with Adobe Flash CS5  ...

When I do the rebuild [ of my site ] it will most likely be a combination of HTML Java and Flash ...

Doing it all in flash makes it a bit on the large size - I always liked the minimalist approach , so the entire thing would need to be as much under 100kb as possible .

on all my sites i have made i always used scaling for the layout (% instead of pixels), all except one i made to look like a application... but as you said its a school project, so they make you progress at their rate

that was the whole progress at their rate... i have been through that at school web programming, it wasnt java, just pure html. but i found that id just program it for 800x600... its what all the schools computers displayed. what id do is program it for the schools pc, since it is a school project and the teacher is the one judging/grading it

 

java is a powerful language, not just for web programming. there is some pretty amazing, powerful apps made in pure java. wish i had learned more than just enough to hack my way through it. for programming i went vb6, the cheap way out. of course im basing that statement on what i know from when i programmed back in the past decade, things have changed... but java is a multi platform language, capable of alot

Old Dell laptop has a native resolution of 1280x800 on a 15" display.

 

Maybe one day I will upgrade to an XPS laptop.
