Custom Resolution?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I would like to create my own custom resolution settings to have a setting of 1680x1260.

 

This is the same ration as 1024x768 and 1600x1200. Why do I want this setting? I need it for an app, and I don't want to go to the next highest resolution of 1920x1440 as its just too dang small.

 

So is there anyway to get this custom resolution set?

If you have a compatible video card, that gets atleast QE. Then you can also try adding that resolution to the EDID of the monitor. OSX wil read this EDID and support the resolution.

 

 

For editing EDID's and stuff, search on the net.

Hey dsc106 have a look at this.

Open Terminal and type: sudo nano /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist

and add this:

<key>Graphics Mode</key>

<string>1680x1260x32@85</string>

press Ctrl+O to save (and then press Enter to save) and Ctrl+X to close.
