Ever wondered what cs2d would look like with a bigger resolution?
There exists a trick that allows you to play at larger resolutions!

Ofcourse, I'm not going to explain the trick. But it did make me think about the actual resolution of cs2d.. In 2004 ( the year the game was released) this resolution might have been decent for people. But with most people having a 1080p monitor, the 640 x 480 resolution really is outdated.
Wouldn't it be a nice idea to upgrade to a bigger resolution in next versions?
Instead of 32x32 tiles, one could use 64x64 tiles or even bigger. This way, the game would receive a necessary graphical enhancement.

Cool,but you can actually play not just be spectator?
You should tell us how to do it if this is true.

So it's not just a trick,it's another program or something.
If it's laggy then keep it for ur self.

/Removed on request.

This thread is meant for the discussion of how CS2D would look like with a higher resolution.

So why the big secret???

I suppose that if we knew what the big secret "trick" was, the above would be unnecessary, no?

That image doesn't load for me so I can't judge this but CS2D will stay 640x480. The reason for this is that it is a 2D game (and not a 3D game). This means that all graphics would have to be recreated or that the visible area would have to be increased. Creating all graphics from scratch is too much work and would make all custom skins useless as well. Changing the visible area would highly affect gameplay and might also ruin many maps which are designed to work with that 640x480 visible area. So: No changes.

Btw: CS2D is meant to be played in a window so you can do other stuff while being dead. I think this is cool.

@DC:
The graphics would only need to be re-done if you wanted to increase the detail, but I'm pretty sure most people just want a slightly larger field of view. Though the issues with certain maps being ruined is a problem.

It must be very nice with fog of war...
And why do we need to see players which are 10 walls away of ourself?
Bad idea.

That`s what I`m calling degradation.
Standing in one place can`t help you.

CS2d must be reworked, at least graphically.

@user StirlizZ-Fapicon:+, I like your idea of reworking, but DC doesn't actually have these much hands because he's very busy in Stranded3, maybe stranded3 will be more better than CS2D because it took a while to release it.

@user StirlizZ-Fapicon: Why did you dig out that old thread? You should know already that I have other priorities. There won't be any major CS2D updates from my side.

OT: user DC, I'm rather amazed at how many times you go through the same thing & keep explaining the reasons nevertheless. o.o

Admin/mod comment:

Yeah... many years of training. You get used to these things after a while... /DC

@user Slovjan: You won't get any better quality from that unless all graphics are re-made to be 64x64 instead of 32x32 - which I clearly won't do because of reasons stated in earlier posts.

@user DC: @user StirlizZ-Fapicon: It's simpler than that. If a tileset_x64 or image_x64 exists then use it, else upscale tileset.png
This way it's left to community and particular users whether to use custom redrawn texture packs.

@user VADemon: That's actually a pretty neat idea.

I would rework some default tile-sets for this. But I would hate having to create 64*64 images for everything

pls add svg

@user ShreefTheHunter: That doesn't even make any sense. Please improve your English.
Also, having authority doesn't necessarily mean that you're always correct.
