It's 2021! More and more people use smartphones and other devices with tiny screens.

Therefore one of my plans for this year is to make all pages belonging to Unreal Software responsive. This means that the contents change dynamically depending on the screen size.

I started with www.CS2D.com because isn't a super complex page. Let me know if it works for you or if you're experiencing problems. There's also still some room for polishing.

Oh and by the way: I also removed the ads for now.

Other pages will follow!

Great news, user DC! Been waiting for this for ages. The help page needs a little bit more changes though. Commands and hooks (or any link in lists, to be honest) are a pain in the ass to navigate with fingers.

Yes, you're right about that. Can definitely improve these. I hope there aren't many people who use their phone to write scripts though

Neat stuff, all seems to work for me!

Only thing is the Disqus frames that pop up everywhere in the FAQ and Commands/Lua sections, they take a while to load and take up a rather large amount of space (while offering no real benefits, I don't see anyone using them - besides, this forum here does the job of offering a place for discussions already)

Sorry, removing /old wasn't really intended. It's back again.

@user Hajt / @user Mami Tomoe: Best reading experience is achieved when the content isn't very wide and when the rows are short. That's why it is like that. Most pages work like that. Most don't seem that narrow because of ads or other boxes one the sides.

Actually when you compare it with /old you'll note that /old was even smaller.


@user _Lima_: Did you take a look at desktop and phone (or on desktop with a narrow browser window)? They are different because some content wraps/disappears on mobile. That's what responsive web design is all about.

The old CS2D website was from the days of 4:3 monitors.
4:3 monitors belong in the past

To me with a 21:9 monitor I found that the lack of "sides" is quite a waste of space.

But it's not a deal breaker, just a bit sad for us wide folks.

I think the website is too tight, there isn't enough space among elements, which also makes the navigation on mobile phones a bit tough.

To me, the left and right spaces are ok to have as long as they let the design to be fresh and modern. I believe in this case, they do not. I don't expect any design overhauls any time soon though.

I increased the width from 750px to 900px now. I guess you're right. It's better.

I don't understand why you are choosing random width(s), Right now on mobile, it is not getting scaled correctly. Just scale the canvas by the width of the resolution of the client.
