I have 1080p monitor (1920x1080 resolution, 16:9 aspect ratio full HD). When I play crystal defense I can not see entire arena even at maximum zoom. I can see only about 75% of arena. It severly compromizes my slow human character's performance. I have seen YouTube videos of crystal defense where player is able to see the entire arena.

Has anyone tried running crystal defense on 1440p monitor (2560x1440 resolution, 16:9 aspect ratio QHD). Does it show entire area of crystal defense arena. If not then do you know how I can see entire crystal defense arena.

Thanks.

    if you got an AMD card you can use virtual super resolution to use higher resolution settings in windows, mine lets me go up to 4k on my 1080p monitor

    Kelp, thanks for the suggestion. NVIDIA gives DSR Factors up to 4 times the native resolution as well. I might use 1.78 times just for testing as it reduces my FPS. I was hoping to find someone with 1440p monitor.

    update: I did this testing. Mabinogi allowed only up to 2560x1440 resolution even though I had resolution enabled up to 4 k. The zoom did not improve. So I could not see entire Crystal Defense arena on screen.

    I guess you don't wanna play in "Screenshot Mode", with the camera going way up in the air, or something, and the screenshot OK window moved out of the way.

    I have to constantly shuffle my gear at high speed. So the screenshot mode will not work. It requires gameplay under high performance mode.
