Hello guys! Let’s talk about resolutions. This is me playing with 1920×1080. The advantage of doing that makes everything more clear and easier to see because this is my native resolution. Now, some people like lower resolutions. One of the reasons for this is because you get slightly better FPS. Another reason for playing with lower resolution is probably because you’re used to old monitors which basically had lower, native resolutions. All in all, it all really comes down to personal preference. But there’s a couple of more things to know about resolutions. First of all, using scaled resolution cuts off the sides. You can see this in my example. This can be seen as a disadvantage, but in most cases if you have your crosshair placed correctly, you should be fine, like most of the times. Another popular setup is to play stretched. Stretch makes all the models look wider and most people like this. It can also help with reaction times. If you like widescreen or stretched resolutions like 1920×1080, you can use these commands SAFEZONEX and SAFEZONEY. These will center the hud. This makes it easier for your eyes. Another thing that is worth to mention is that the menu screen, console and all other overlays become bigger when you use lower resolutions.
So now you’re probably wondering what I recommend. To be honest, I recommend what feels best for you. The only time I would honestly have “What the fuck are you doing?” reaction is if you’re using a resolution well under your native resolution e.g. 800×600 on a full HD monitor. Come on guys, that’s basically overdoing it. Oh! One last thing. If you’re having a bad day, don’t start changing your resolution. That’s not the issue. It’s all in your head. Changing stuff is not usually the solution to your problem. OK guys. So, what resolution do you prefer? Please comment down below and have an awesome day guys..
