Re: Windows 98 Resolution

Actually, the fact that modern games use an internal resolution scaled to the desktop resolution is a workaround due to the limitations of modern displays. LCD screens can only display their native resolution, their pixels can only have one size: any other resolution will be either adjusted to that …
