Re: User Interface size vs. resolution (split from wishlist)

So is there anyone left who actually plays the game at 1280 wide or less?

I'm tending to think that 1440x900 as the minimum standard is a reasonable choice, with 1600x900 as the primary design resolution (we would still operate on 1280x1024 or 1280x720, but those would not be the design targets).

Other comments?

Until about 2 months ago, my main monitor was 1280x768 HDTV. Now I've got 1920x1080, but still.

Not a bad choice considering its a medium between what I think would be the most used resolutions. Thing to keep in mind is most ppl who do run 768 heigth are likely to be using larger 720p HD TVs as displays so UI size is going to be less of an issue.(and depending on where they sit while using them overly large UI may be preferred.)
