Board size

Board size

Postby ytqb on Fri Feb 05, 2010 12:00 am

On a full board problem, I would like to be able to use the large stones, but you truncate the board at the lower end of the board. The width fits easily on the screen. If you extended the board down further, I could see the whole board with large stones. Thanks, Adum.

Hi, I think that's a very good point.

To solve the issue, I've made a new page as a test. I'd like people to try it.
http://www.goproblems.com/prob-test1.php3?id=61

I've made two changes to the page from the current one:
(1) In the current page, the height of the applet is set to 85% of the window height. In the new page, this is set to 100%. It should be preferable on a small display, for it solves the issue directly. However, it should be unpreferable on a large display, for it hides the message area above the applet.
(2) The current applet has two sizes of stones: Small and Large. The new applet has one more size: Fit. It uses largest possible stones within the applet area, with a bit less quality graphics. This is helpful especially when the Large board doesn't even fit to the 100% height of the maximized window (just like in my case!).

What do people think?

Looks cool!

But on "Large" I got something like this: http://picasaweb.google.ru/lh/photo/9CR ... directlink

I'm using 13.1" display with 1280x800 resolution.

Thanks for the feedback. Yes, "Large" is too large for a 1280x800 display. That's why I propose "Fit".

It's technically possible to show the whole Large board by fixing the hight, like:
http://www.goproblems.com/prob-test2.php3?id=61
but I think it isn't a good idea. On a small display, we would need to scroll things, and we would easily miss node comments. On a large display on the other hand, the area would be unnecessarily small.

Test2 looks better than Test1 on my screen (1280 x 800). It looks fine. Thanks.

On Test2 Large is the same as Fit, i.e. it fits the screen and looks quite well.

I replaced the page and the applet with Test1. How do people like (or hate) it?

Sorry but I can't adopt Test2, for not all people uses 1280x800 screen. It's clear it would cause serious trouble to some people.
